Without a trip to the ER, that is.
I guess we've had a pretty good track record, not having had to visit the ER before.
A playground injury. He was playing tag and ran into the metal playground equipment.
Man, head wounds sure do bleed profusely.
My little trooper didn't cry or moan once. He's my little Frankenstein now...2 staples!
Don't worry - the shiny stuff is antibiotic gel. Mostly.
Pretty gross...I can't get the area wet for 24 hours and as I mentioned, head wounds bleed profusely. His hair is soaked with blood (now dried). I tried sponging it out as best I could. Ick!
So I've driven by several Urgent Cares in my time, always making a conscious mental note of where they are just in case. Yeah, all that cataloguing just flew out the window. My mind went blank. Luckily someone nearby knew the one I wanted to go to. Whew!
OK, enough excitement for me for one day.
