So I guess we're lucky that we've gone a whole 2 years without any major injuries yet with this girl, but I guess there's a first for everything. This happened last night. She was walking around on the bed and we told her, "sit down so you don't fall off." And sure enough one second later she fell off head first and smacked her head right on the edge of the entertainment center in our hotel room. We hurried and picked her up and the blood started coming right away and then we saw it, her skull. It wasn't a very long cut but it was deep clear down to the bone and it was pretty wide open. Off course we were freaking out having this be the very first time anything too terrible has happened to our little girl. So we ran to the lobby and told them to call 911, meanwhile she's screaming and won't stop. So the ambulence came and we decided it wasn't as bad as we thought. She was talking to us by now and kind of being herself, so we knew it wasn't too serious, it just definately needed stitches. So we borrowed a friends car and drove 25 miles to the nearest emergency room and got her in right away. She was fine and telling everyone bye and thank you but once the doctor came in she wasn't so happy. So they had to wrap her up tight in a blanket with her arms tied down and a nurse holding her head so tight. Then they had to put all these towels and covers over her face so just her eyes were showing and she just screamed the whole time he put the stitches in and of course I was crying my eyes out just watching her. It was the saddest thing to have to watch them tie down your little girl and she's screaming your name and there's nothing you can do about it. I'm crying right now just thinking about it, not a fun experience. Anyways it was so deep the doctor had to do two layers of stitches so it took a little longer, but they finally uncovered her and I got to hold her and she was fine just a little scared. Then I think the rest of the night she had forgotten everything that had just happened. She's my brave little girl and we're so blessed to have her in our lives. We love her so much and we're glad she's ok. P.S It's Brett's birthday today. Happy Birthday Brett I love you so much!
