Boo Boo!

Last night Luke decided it was time for a trip to the ER. (Like I don't get enough of that place). Chris was giving him a shower and some how Luke slipped and fell and gashed his chin. So, off we go to the ER at 9:00. This was NOT a good experience. Luke totally freaked out. He was not happy about the papoose, which he had to have because he would NOT be still. He also screamed and talked through the whole experience, which made suturing the cut a difficult task. Everytime we told him he had to be still, he would let out this barbaric cat-like "NO!." He ended up with 2 deep sutures and 9 superficial sutures, for a total of 11 sutures. Let me just say, being on "the other side" of and ER visit is no fun!

OH NO!!! Poor Luke and Mommy and Daddy and ER Doc and ER nurse and guard standing outside the door listening to little boy yell! That first ER visit is a right of passage...hopefully you are DONE!

Get all better soon!
