havnt been on here since the boards have changed so hello again!
so, i was in the bathroom doing my make up to get ready & take ds hayden(20mo) shopping for some new clothes becuase he was in need of new clothes badly! all a sudden i hear him screaming on the top of his lungs. i run out of the bathroom & see dh covered in blood holding ds. he told me to get a towel so i did & said we had to go to the hospital. (keep im mind im freaking out & have not seem his head yet) so dh handed ds to me & i ran down to the car. holding him in the driveway i decided to take a look at his head...BAD IDEA! there was a HUGE gash/hole right in the middle of his forehead! @ this point im histerical, ds is screaming. hubby gets in the car. i put ds in the carseat & hold him down no time to put on seatbelts. (hossy is right down the street) & im holding the towel on his head crying hysterically. in the mean time ds is trying to fall asleep so im singing his favorite song pinching his cheeks trying to keep him awake.
we finally get there & he gets seen about 15 mins after we get there. give him an iv which they had to try three times to get it right. sedated him & checked him out. he ended up with three internal stitches & nine regular stitches on the outside. the doctor @ the hospital said that he didnt think there was any worry for concussion or internal bleeding but to keep an eye on him very closely for the next 24 hours.
this all happened sunday. today he is doing better. a lil cranky becuase of the pain & headache. i can only imagine how he feels poor baby! what had happened was he was trying to stand on his bouncy ball which has slipped from under him & he nailed his head on the hearth of the fireplace. needless to say dh & i went out & made a big cushony bumper to go around the whole thing. just wish i would have done it sooner!
his stitches come out friday & he seems to be doing very well considering how much he has been through! thank you for listening!View Thread
