Stitches



Today was a Emotional day ..It all started this Morning when my MIL came over to take Monkey Boy Swimming. She also brought over a Huge Bag of School Clothes for Monkey Boy. My Husband was loading the Morning dishes in the Dishwasher and Lil Worm was trying to climb into the dishwasher. She was trying to show me the clothes ,so I put Little Worm in the Living Room and is a open floor space to the Kitchen except we have a Baby Gate to keep him out of the Kitchen. I can see him at all times. All of a sudden I hear a loud Thud. I rush over the Baby gate and see my Lil Worm covered in blood from his Nose. He somehow fell into the Bottom of the staircase Banister. I use to have Foam on there when he was first learning how to walk,but since he has gotten older and teething he decided it was more fun to eat the Foam. I removed the Foam because it was becoming a choking hazard,and I felt that he was better at walking and it was not necessary in that spot anymore. He was screaming so loud. My Husband and I took a look at it and Knew he needed to go to the Emergency Room. My Mil stayed with Monkey boy and eventually took him to the pool. My Husband and I went to the Emergency Room. I was so glad that my husband was with me. Being 8 Months Pregnant I was a emotional wreak. They had to restrain him and he needed 5 stitches in his Nostril. I could not take my Baby crying so hard. A cry that is so Different from anything I have ever experienced with him. My Husband stayed in the room with our Baby and I walked down to the Emergency Room Bathroom where I could still hear him cry ...It seamed like it took forever. I almost threw up in the Bathroom I was so sick to my Stomach. When it was over I held my baby so tight and kissed him until he calmed down from the whole experience. When we got home I went to Babies R Us and purchased some more foam to cover the Banister,and a new toy for my Little Boy. He is doing well and the stitches will be out on Wed,but boy my 1st Son has never needed stitches and this was so scary. Being a Mom is so much harder than I could ever imagine.

It was the worst experience I have ever had when Colton had to get his stitches. When they had to hold him down, it is a sound I never want to hear again!!

Oh my goodness! So traumatic. :(

I'm glad to hear he's doing okay now though. Poor baby.

Aw poor thing, I would be a wreck myself. Nathan has been getting into so much trouble lately that it is only a matter of time before we make a trip to the ER too.
