Stitches

Yesterday was quite the day. If you're squeamish you may not want to not scroll down. We had two little friends at our house from 10 till 2. There was running, biking and lots of playing. Then Rubes and Teo went to their house while I headed to work. I received a call at 4:45pm that Rubes had been hit in the head with a golf club. The phrase sounds cliche but "accidents happen". In all honesty I always thought Teo would be the reason for a trip to the emergency room. Alas Rubes now has 11 little stitches in her forehead. Rubes was such a brave girl. No screaming or crying during the stitches, just a bit of quivering lip. Our Doctor told us she was a much better patient than most adults he sees for this sort of thing. He was great, patient and kind. He told Rubes everything he would be doing and how it might feel. The best experience I've ever had with an emergency room.
Here's our morning after shot. Hopefully there won't be much scarring. We'll just have to wait and see. I'm just thankful she's O.K.
