Stitches!

On December 23rd Gabe took a tumble off of Andrew's high chair. His cheek connected with the corner of the kitchen table resulting in a half-inch long gash. After a brief assessment (including a brief discussion about not putting a bleeding child on our new carpet) we concluded he needed stitches, so off to the Humboldt ER we went! The only 2 things he asked for were his kitty and a hug from Andrew (cute)!

This is a picture I took with my cell phone when we got to the ER.


Right after we got home. There are 3 stitches under the band-aid.


Christmas Eve morning...


He was upset that he couldn't blink. "My eye won't blink mommy, I want it to blink!"


Christmas Day....





Opening presents from Santa.

He has to have the stitches in for 10 days total. He doesn't seem to be bothered by the stitches and has been leaving them alone. He can tell the story really well about what happened!

He told me after we left the ER that it only hurt a little bit and that it made him nervous when the bed moved (up/down). He got to watch TV at the ER and that made him happy. The movie "Home Alone" was on and he thought that was really funny. He was MAD when they did the stitches because he couldn't see the movie and the light was too bright in his eyes.

Geez Gabe - you even do owies to the extreme!! That's the coolest looking thing ever. I esp. like the spidey band aid. I bet the ladies LOVE it. Hope you feel better quick tough guy.
