Stitches!

The Wagoner's had their first trip to the Urgent Care for stitches last Thursday! I have been blogging about the older two boys and things that they have been doing lately, so I guess Davis was feeling a little left out! Well, here you go buddy a post for you only!!

Here is how it happened...we got home from Connor's practice and all the boys were wound up. I think they knew Friday was Halloween and they were just all excited! Davis was standing by the hallway and Carson went to chase him. Davis turned and hit the corner of his eye directly on the corner of the wall. I hear Davis scream and then see the blood streaming down his face. Thank heavens Jim was home! I do not do well with these sort of things. The site of blood makes me a little queasy or should I say a lot queasy! I got a towel with ice and we put it on the cut. It thankfully stopped bleeding pretty quickly, however, Jim informed me that I better take him to get it looked at. I was able to get into the Urgent Care in town right before they closed and the doctor said he better put a couple stitches in it.

Davis did such a good job. I had to help hold him down when they numbed it and put the stitches in. I surprised myself and held his hand and even watched a little of what was going on. It is surprising as a mom what you will do to help your little ones feel better. I must say I was pretty proud of myself for holding it together and not passing out myself! As soon as he was done he got a glove balloon, sticker and suckers. One for him and his brothers! What a thoughtful little fellow he is! We got home and he just told his Dad that it hurt weally bad!

I guess I should feel pretty lucky to have 3 boys and this is the first run for stitches we have had to make! We went last night and got the stitches out. That was much easier than putting them in! I am sure he will have a little scar, but for a boy a few battle wounds seems to be a cool thing!

I am glad Davis did well getting the stitches out. I was afraid the he would think it was going to feel like the first trauma.

Oh Davis, what a brave boy you are. Aunt Jami would be scared to get stitches, too!

You are a brave boy Davis. Aunt Heidi had stitches a couple of times and cried both times. One time I was just a little older than you and the second time I was in my late 20's.
I am so glad you are feeling better!
Love ya,
Aunt Heidi

Ahhh, so sorry! I guess this gives him bragging rights someday about how tough he really is:0
I know my boys can be rough...I am amazed I have gone all this time without one trip to the ER with them.(knock of wood)

This photo is adorable. I am going to bet that he will love telling the story over and over again.

I've been there more than once...always with my boys :). The scars get lighter and lighter as they grow. I'm glad all is well now :)!!
