My little Tan Man decided to climb in the little nook between the couch and chair yesterday. I put my curio cabinet in there will all of my porcelain dolls for safe keeping. All I can gather is he stepped on one of the picture frames I had stacked there, tried getting out, leaned up on the arm of the chair and pushed himself forward with his feet on the glass door breaking it. When I got to him he was standing half in and half out of the curio. I pulled him out and was grateful to not see a scratch on him.
He thought he was in trouble and ran up the stairs. Suddenly I heard him screaming and crying...I bleed mom, I bleed! I ran up to see what he was so hysterical about and found him with blood gushing out of his right leg. I looked closer and through the blood I saw a huge layer of fat protruding out.
I picked him up, told my dad we were headed to the Dr.'s for stitches and we left. I called the Dr. on the way so they were expecting us. Tanner screamed the entire way there. They rushed us in the "stitching room" and started work immediately.
They don't use numbing shots any more! They put a big glob of numbing gel on it and had him lay still until it took affect. They also gave him a blue sucker to help with his nauseousness. He only felt a few of the stitches but laid still...he was quite the trooper. He picked blue stitches of which he had 8 and a blue bandage. He was soooo brave.
Tan Tan is the first of my kiddos to get stitches...not bad considering I have 3 boys and the oldest is 10!
