Stitches again....




Well we spent another 2 hours in the emergency room this morning. Yes it was Ryan again. This is the second time in less than a year for him. Larry's mom gave me a set of cutco knives for Christmas and gave the warning "Do not let your kids get near these knives because they are super sharp!" Well we warned them several times do not touch these knives because they will slice your fingers off. So I am cleaning closets out to take to the DI trailer when Ryan starts screaming I am bleeding!
So I run in the kitchen and there is massive amounts of blood falling to the floor. I am freaking out yelling at everyone--I call Larry and he calmly says I will meet you at the emergency room. So I race to get up there leaving Natalia and a crying Seth at home. We get up to the emergency room and have to wait about 45 minutes until they finally came and got him. Ryan is my tough one--he doesn't cry when they have to poke his thumb twice with a needle full of numbing medicine. He just flinched. If it had been Seth-he would have been yelling and screaming and trying to run out of there. They are very different kids. Anyway so the two pictures are in the emergency room with my phone and the third picture is here at home. He is doing fine now but what a fun and eventful day. I am tired now. Oh and we ask him what were you doing with the knive we told you never to touch?? He says I was trying to cut off my bouncy ball from the paddle it was stuck to????? I asked are you ever going to touch those knives again? He says no way.

I forgot to mention that he sliced it to the bone missing his tendon. He received about 10 stitches! Not fun.

It's just one more lesson learned for that little boy.
