First Trip to the ER

With two boys, we knew it was a matter of when, and not if, but I guess it still takes you by surprise. We went to a friend’s house tonight for a party to celebrate her completing her master’s program. Within 5 minutes of walking in the door, Alex had climbed onto the trampoline, tripped, and fell face-first on one of the springs. The result was a gash in his forehead. We knew it was going to take more than a band-aid, so off we went to the emergency room.

Luckily, the doctor was able to close it up with glue, so Alex didn’t have to go through the stitch routine – yet. He seems fine now, but we do expect some swelling and discomfort tomorrow. So much for our planned trip to the pool. I guess we’ll have to find another way to cool off on a mid-90’s summer day. Anyway, we thought people would want to hear the news.

  1. OUCH!!!!!! But it looks like Alex was a brave lad in the ER — scoffing at his wound with a smile, no less. He’s tougher than those cute looks suggest! Love that guy . . . and his big brother too!

  2. GREAT GUSSIE WHAT A GASH!

    Sure hope he gets a good night’s sleep…

    The above words are from my childhood doctor, made after his son escorted be in the back door of his clinic… won’t soon forget the day, nor I suspect, will Alex!

    Love
    Grandpa
