Mama Called the Dr. & the Dr. said...

So we had a little accident today. While rough housing with his brother today Andrew had a run in with the corner of the wall where the metal flashing is underneath the drywall and had to make a trip to the ER for stitches.

I was really blessed that this accident happened at the end of a play date with a friend right before she left. So when it happened and we realized he would need to go to the ER she took my other two boys home with her. You know these head wounds always seem to pour blood. If you look closely at Andrews shirt the large dark spot down the front is all blood. I was wearing a white shirt and was soaked in blood. So because I had used a tie to secure an ice pack wrapped in a towel to stop the bleeding and I was covered in blood, the minute we walked in the ER they took us right back and sent someone to come and admit us while the got to work on Andrew.


Now Andrew did not need this head bandage after they stitched him up but while he had a different on earlier to stop the bleeding he asked if he could go home with one on because it made him feel like a pirate. Silly boy! He was however very brave, before we got to the ER he was scared that it would hurt to have stitches but we said a prayer that he would have peace and that the spirit would be with him during his trip to the hospital. Afterward he said that our prayer was answered because he wasn't scared. I'm grateful that he is okay and that I was able to use this situation to teach my kids on how important it is to pray always.

My grandson the Pirate!! He looks so cool! So glad he was ok and that your brother could help out getting you to ER. Now Andrew can tell his story about praying the next time he gives a talk on Prayer! Great teaching moment. Give him a smooch from me!

So glad he is okay! And that he felt better after you prayed. It was interesting, we were going to go to the store and Tyson made two wrong turns and we had to turn around. As we were turning around you called. I think Heavenly Father hand in it, Tyson was baffled he made a second wrong turn in a row, after you called he knew why. I love how the Lord can make all the different pieces all fit in place just when we need it. Anyway, we love you and are glad Andrew's doing better!
