Baby Boy Injured

>> Saturday, January 15, 2005

Last night Jody & Doug left Baby Brenna with us while they went out for a while. Brenna's bouncy seat was in the kitchen while we were all having dinner. When we were done, Ethan went over to Brenna and kept kissing her on top of the head. After the third time, Ethan lost his footing on the linoleum and banged his head on the corner of the wall between the kitchen and the living room.

He ended up with an inch gash that was bleeding quite a bit and not swelling too much. He just kept saying "it hurt me" over and over. I called our neighbor, who's an EMT, to come over and look at the injury. At his point I was in tears (absolutely helpless), and my 3 year old was hugging my husband and me because he was scared. The husband went out & started the car while we waited for the neighbor. Mark (the neighbor) said stitches wouldn't be needed, and we should watch him for signs of nausea and dizziness for the next couple of days. Today, he's acting perfectly normal. Every once in a while, he points at the band-aid and says 'I have a boo-boo'. Yeah, buddy.

We're so lucky we have good neighbors, and we escaped an emergency room visit (for now).
