So just when I think I'm running out of things to post about....

Yesterday the kids and I were over at my mother-in-law's house and Lacy was playing peek-a-book with Mimi in her closet while she was doing the laundry. While playing so happily, she ran over her foot with the sliding closet door. It took her a minute to scream but once she did, it was like bloody murder. I quickly picked her up because I saw she was bleeding and ran her to the sink so she didn't bleed on Mimi's white carpet!


It was super deep and super groose! I am such a baby when it comes to stuff like this. I am actually getting queasy just thinking about it right now. We washed it off and held a rag with pressure on it. It blead through the rag a couple of times, so we duct-taped some gause and quickly got in the car to go to the ER. My mother-in-law had a primary activity to go to so my mom was an angel and dropped what she was doing and came with me to help- THANK GOODNESS!


Lacy was pretty good in the car and even in the ER waiting room, until the doctor asked if he could un-tape her foot. She kicked and screamed and they knew there was no way they could stitch her up with her being so strong and so wiggly. When it was time they took us into a private room and they gave her some verset (i think thats what its called and how its spelled??) to calm her nerves. Oh man, it was way too funny!! Within 30 seconds she was totally high! She was giggling, happy, she could barely talk, she was drooling, she even said thank-you when they gave her shots in her foot. She was so funny!


Well she got 3 stitches in her foot and has to wear only slippers for the next 10 days. She is being just fine and will let me change the dressings on her foot with-out any problems. The only problem we have had since being home is when she came off the verset. Oh man.. there are some nasty side effects. She was delirious, violent, shakey, self destructive, and even euphoric all within a couple hours.

videoyea, its sideways, get over it!

Poor little thing! I've got 3 stitches in my little toe from going down a metal slide and snagging my toe on it when I was about her age. Thank goodness for good meds! Too bad they couldn't send you home with any.

Lacey was so brave, but thats because she had drugs, where were yours when you had to watch the whole thing. Your a brave soul.

I had so much fun with you the first half of the experience. Lacy was so funny to watch and listen to. The second half was a little hairy. Poor girl really went crazy! I guess not to many moms think that going to the er is fun but that is just the wantabe nurse in me.

I get really grossed out by blood too...it makes me weak just thinking about it! That is so funny that she was saying thank-you to shots! You know something is wrong. The doctors and nurses all seem to be smiling in that picture, but your mom looks so concerned. I am glad everything turned out ok. Now hopefully you have good insurance for the stupid ER bill!!
