First ER trip

Well I knew it was bound to happen the day after we got home from the hospital with Nicholas, Richie had his first accident. It resulted in a trip to the ER. Poor little guy was cruising around the kitchen with his toy guns. He slipped on the tile, and wham I thought for sure he poked his eyeball with the barrel. Nope it had left him alittle gash about 1/2 inch right above his eye.

My poor baby I couldn't jump up and get him so I yelled at my mom to check on him. He cried of course I was worried he needed stitches. So off big Richie my mom and dad go to take him to the ER. Thank heavens he only needed some dermabond to fix his laceration. You know liquid glue for skin.

He moved during the procedure to repair his eye so part of the eye corner was stuck to itself. Poor kid looked like he had a stroke. Now I know it's not funny to joke about those things but that is the best way I can explain how it looked.

Happy to say he's doing much better about it now. Still tells me about his boo boo and the Dr's who fixed it. I really hope this is the last trip to the ER.
