Knock on Wood!

Did I not just post about needed a summer break from anymore injuries or visits to Urgent care. Well, yesterday I only worked until 1:30 and I came home and planned to help my sister pack up her apartment and leave the girls at school while I did that. So I came home, had some lunch, got dressed in comfy clothes to go help, when my cell phone rings. I looked: "YM" (Young Minds Preschool.) Oh no. My heart instantly races....I think, "Who threw up? Who's hurt?" They called me about a month ago to come pick Reagan up because she slept wrong on her neck during naptime and she woke up with a wicked crick in her neck. It was sad. She couldn't turn her head.
Anyway.....I dread those calls. So I quickly answer. "Hi, Ryan's had an accident. I was carrying a table from one of the classrooms and Ryan came running out of the bathroom, full speed ahead, and ran right into the corner of the table, right below her eyebrow and she's bleeding." Ok....more stitches, I thought. And to make matters worse.....Ryan is EXTREMELY dramatic about any injury or scrape. She cries and cries about not going to the doctor and she walks around asking everyone "Am I bleeding?? Don't look!!" Ever since she got stitches on her finger, she is scared about going to the doctor. So I go and examine the damage. As you can see, a gash (right under her previous gash from my headboard) and she broke a blood vessel in her eyeball, which concerned me.
I didn't know what to do, so I took the girls to Chris' office and we decided it probably didn't need stitches. We remembered that Greg Titensor gave us an extra tube of Dermabond and we would glue it ourselves. Thanks Greg again!!! Saved another $30 co-pay.
Well, Ryan's doing good, but she kept crying, "I don't want anyone to see my cut when we go see "WALL-E" or "I can't go to Naomi's party with a cut on my eye!"
Well don't run in the halls.....or fall my headboard.....or smash your finger in a door....etc.

Do you happen to know the Stock name for Durmabond? I think I'll invest after reading about your two kids. Actually I know how you guys feel. I am wondering if my son, Luke, will make it to adulthood. He fell and scraped his nose and forehead the other day. He was running down a hill. Let's just say I'm not planning on an academic scholarship if you know what I mean.
