Another Near ER Trip...

About to walk out the door this morning. Da Hubby takes Viking #2 out of his high chair so I can get him dressed and places him standing on the floor. #2 promptly falls over into the footrest of the highchair and splits his bottom lip open. *sigh* Not a split really but a "cheese grater" effect instead. Couldn't get the bleeding to stop after 5+ minutes of pressure with a washcloth and ice cube so we called the pediatrician-on-call. He said "go to the ER!" and at that moment the bleeding finally stopped. So we chose to go to church, praise God anyway (LOL), and ask for prayer over #2 for healing.

What a morning! Only seven days after having the ceramic plate fall and break over his head! I'm told *this* is what raising a boy will be like...good thing we have insurance for when (not just an "if" apparently) something really bad happens! LOL

Oh I am soo sorry for the bummed lip. That is scary!!

I wanted to let you know that I responded to your comment on my theology post. I love that you are bouncing ideas off. And to be honest there is no right or wrong answer on this one. I just love discussing it. =)

Poor guy! I know the feeling! Nathan had a *gasp* black eye and it seemed that it has been one thing and another with him.

Boys seem to have the most bumps and bruises! I have been scared out of my mind at times, but thank God, He has brought us through!
