Yup, it's true. Son finally got to go to the ER for those stitches he always wanted!!
This weekend, Son was invited to go biking with a friend near his house. MB dropped him off, then ran some errands...then came home. Shortly after that, we received a phone call from his friend's parents. He had hit some rocks and flipped over his handlebars. MB rushed off to pick him up.
When he got out of the car, my heart nearly stopped. He was covered (covered!!) in blood. We stripped his clothes off and got him into the tub.
Turns out he had only one (one!) cut, on the bridge of his nose. In this cut was a dark spot that we thought could either be a rock...or a hole. After getting him out of the tub and into his pajamas, MB decided he should take Son to the clinic near our house. They were going to put stitches in, but then the Dr. called the Children's Hospital and they decided they wanted to see him. So they came home and got me and we all went to the Children's Hospital. They couldn't tell if his nose was broken or not, so they just put in stitches and sent us home. He has to got back to the ENT (ear, nose, throat) this week. If his nose is broken, they'll reset it. Also they will take the stitches out.
I did get some photos. The weirdest thing is that he looks so unlike himself right now. He is developing some bruises on his forehead and some dark circles beneath his eyes.
His stitches look pretty gnarly. And he has a good story to tell. And we all know how important that is.
