a week and a half ago, luke fell and hit his eyebrow on a box and split it open.  we took him to mendy’s place (a pediatric e.r.).  an hour and a half and four stitches later, we were on our way home.

to numb your wound now, they have a really cold liquid (i forget what it is called) that they put on a cotton ball and secure to the area for at least 20 minutes.

* sorry, i forgot to take before and after shots of his eyebrow.

** am i the only mom that has a hard time watching something happen to their child knowing you can’t do anything about it or take their pain away?

  let me explain…  the lower half of the eyebrow (cut/ whatever you want to say) did not get numb enough.  luke tried to be brave during the first stitch.  he only flinched a little.  but, having had tons of stitches myself, i knew that he had feeling.  from the second stitch on, he was SCREAMING.  can you blame the poor guy? 

the doctor was originally going to give him 5 stitches.  but, we all thought 4 would suffice.  not to mention, i’m not sure that luke, jeff, or i could handle another one.

don’t tell jeff i told you, but when they were all done, i saw jeff wipe tears from his eyes.

       luke got a teddy bear afterward.
