The Other Shoe

So, Troy is out of town, and just yesterday I had the thought that we might make it through this trip without a disaster. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

We were getting ready to leave the house this morning, and poor Katie had been a little grouchy, so I didn't think too much of it when she started to cry.

But, she came up to me and wanted to be held, and when I picked her up she had blood running down her face!


She had tripped and hit her head on the corner of our sheet music box.

It was just a little cut, but we took her to the emergency room to see if she needed a stitch or two. Luckily, it was a really clean laceration and they were able to glue it shut. But, not until they made us wait 2 and a half hours.

Thank goodness for Andrea. She took Becky for me, and I returned just in time to take Evan so Andrea could rush Anna to the doctor.

What is it with these absentee husbands of ours?

No, seriously, I know you'd be here if you could Troy. Everything is fine.

And here is the little miss now. Don't be freaked out, it looks worse than it really is!

OH poor girl. But I have to say even with that owie she still looks so stinkin adorable. I love the blue eyes. Gonna be a knock out.

Andrea said...

Crazy days. Here's to better days. And husbands who don't travel so much.

Lara said...

Poor girl! Over the years we've done stitches, staples, and the glue and I'll take the glue any day.

You two just might be bad luck for each other! Glad Katie's okay.

AWWW! She's so cute tho'! Give her an extra kiss from me.

The emergency room visits don't stop coming even when they grown up a little. Ashli made a quick trip to the on campus doctor last week, and just yesterday Presten broke half of his front tooth off at basketball practice! Sigh!!!! But thank goodness they are so strong and bounce back quickly! Hang in there darlin'!

She even makes a cut look beautiful. How does she do that?
