Six Little Stitches

The kids wanted to go to Joshua and Marah's church for VBS this week so off we went to Florence for a few days. It's funny how everything always happens when you leaset expect it. Caley fell on the front steps at Nana and Grampy's house and hit her head pretty good. It seriously looked like there was a hole in her head. I think everyone was pretty scared but especially Carter. He cried for a long time worried about his sister. He's my tender heart.

Mom and I took her to the ER immediately and thankfully we didn't have to wait long at all. The doctor saw her and right away said that she would need some stitches. He also thought that the scar might have to be corrected in the future. Hopefully not.

I think he did a fantastic job stitching her up! They wrapped her up like a burrito and had two nurses to holding her down so the doctor could numb the area. I think he stuck her about 5 times right in the hole. Caley was screaming and honestly I felt like screaming too. That had to have hurt so bad. She was closing her eyes tight the whole time because she didn't want to see anything. Smart girl!

After she was numb she laid there very still and let the doctor stitch her up without a problem. I was very proud of her. I am so thankful that she's o.k. Her guradian angel was taking care of her.

Six stiches right in the middle of her forehead.

A closer look.

Caley new that we had planned on going to Spring Park that night to grill out with some of the family and she wasn't gonna let a few stitches stop that.
The kids had so much fun playing together! Caley felt fine the entire time. Not one complaint.
Towards the end of the night there was a light show by the water. The kids also got to feed the ducks. It was a perfect night....felt wonderful outside.

As you can imagine, baths were a necessity that night, immediately when we got back!

Bless her sweet little heart!


Poor thing! I hate it she had to go through that, but it sounds like she was lucky and a real trooper. I think she handled it better than most grown ups would. Those pictures of all of the kids are so good! I love how you did the layout of them. You'll have to show me how to do that. I'm glad ya'll still had a good time being there. :)

Talk about some Kmart feet... whew!! I'm so glad Caley felt better that night, but I can only imagine how scary it must have been at the time! By the way, I think your next "Paige and Brooke" post needs to be how to make those picture collages like you did in this post! LOVE it!
