1st and Hopefully Last ER Visit

Last night right before bedtime Brian and Hudson were playing and he tripped and slammed his head into our side table and he immediately started bleeding and crying.  Brian picked him and I ran in the kitchen and got a towel and put pressure on it.  The cut was right at his left eyebrow.  He didn't know to leave his eye shut and got a lot blood in his eye.  I told Brian we needed to take him to the ER.  I didn't know if he would need stitches or glue or even a CT scan since he hit his head or an antibiotic since he had so much blood in his eye.  On the way to the ER, the bleeding pretty much stopped and I called and talked to his doctor and she said that since the cut was about a centimeter to go ahead and take him to the ER.  Hudson actually did pretty good - he stopped crying before we even left our house.  He did scream loud when we had to hold him down and let the doctor clean it out and put the glue on it.  The ER was amazing!  We got in and out in 1 hr and 10 minutes.  

At the ER
Getting tired
I put this t-shirt on him today because I thought he was pretty tough.  
Hopefully that's our last ER visit.  I'm thankful he's okay because it could have been a lot worse.  


  1. It's always so stressful when our kids are sick or get hurt. Glad he's ok ... poor little buy.


Thanks for leaving me a message! Many Blessings!
