I was putting Cam's homework away, right before they went to bed. Both kids were in their PJ's, watching something on tv. I heard Eamon cry, and ran over. (I have learned to distinguish the cries, and this one meant something.) He had hit his face on the coffee table. As I baby-carried him to the dining room to get more light, I saw no blood on his mouth where I assumed he had hit. But then, I did. His chin was bleeding. So I laid him on the table to get a better look. It was a "kisser" (I made that up just now). If you moved it just right, it was a nasty bloody little mouth. So I held it another way, to keep it closed. I had Cam hold a tissue on it (to keep it closed) and called Bran (at his friend's house replacing his muffler?) to tell him about it.
"Eamon cut his chin open and I think I need to take him to the Instacare."
"You're kidding me, right?"
"Well, I just had Seth superglue my cheek, cause I cut it open. It would open when I moved my cheek. I am in the bathroom looking at it. And my car is not in running condition right now so I can't go with you."
So I drove the kids to the Orem Instacare because they were open till 10pm. Lucky me. While we waited, a nurse put some numbing stuff on gauze and taped it to his chin.
Cam and Eamon were very good. I was able to use my iTouch to let them watch a short video and they also watched Hero League or something like that with Batman on the tv there. He ended up getting 3 stitches without a shot. It was such a different experience from the one he had when he turned 1 and had to get 5 stitches above his eyebrow. That was horrible.
Here's one of Bran's cheek a week later.
Two days later, Eamon pulled one of the stitches out. It was already scabbed over, so I just left it.
Also, I would like to be called Dr. Hansen....cause I just pulled them out myself. I don't have time to drive over there and have them do it. It's not rocket science. So the half with the remaining two stitches looks perfect, the other side, not so much. Looks like a cut that was left to heal by itself. Lame. So he will have half a scar. Stinkin' kid.
