ER visits and new bandaids


Well, the inevitable finally happened. Camden broke a glass Sunday night and cut his toe. It was bleeding pretty badly and looked deep, so I drove him to the ER. Well, first I drove to Urgent Care but something can only be urgent until 5:00 p.m. on Sundays. So, off to St. John Macomb Hospital we went. Thankfully that hospital is only 10 minutes from our house (and 12 from the not-so-urgent-because-it's-Sunday care center. )
The nurses and doctors were TEERRIIFFIIC (as the goose in Charlotte's Web says) with Camden. They x-rayed his foot to make sure no glass remained. Then they wrapped him like a mummy and I had to help hold him down while they numbed his toe. A male nurse held down his legs (Camden is much stronger than I thought!!). 2 stiches later he was MUCH better (and not feeling pain).
All in all I was very pleased with the ER. We were in and out in an hour (not bad, really). Here's a look at his toe (picture taken Tuesday).
Of course, we must keep it clean and bandaged....so Mommy went out and got Spiderman Bandaids....the other ones we had all got used as stickers....hmmmmm.

ahhh trips to the ER...good times...good times...

Just wait till his first "rock fight" or when he is learning to ride his bike without a helmet and crashes into the only tree within 100 yards. Don't forget about him racing, running and not turning when he gets to the wall....yes, good times...
