Sean Gets Stitches

July 14, 2007 on 8:26 pm | In Main | No Comments

Today was quite a day. This morning, we drove down to the Chandler Mall. Even though the mall is about an hour drive, it has the only Williams-Sonoma store, and Cortney had a gift certificate she needed to use. We had lunch at the mall as well.

This afternoon, we had friends over a pool party. It was hot enough that we decided to eat indoors rather than out by the pool. After dinner, the kids all went swimming, with me watching. Sean unfortunately hit his chin on the side of the pool. He started crying, stating that his chin hurt. I did not see any blood at the time, so I didn’t think it was a problem, but I told him to show me where it hurt. That’s when I noticed a small gash on his chin. It wasn’t wide, but it was deep, so I realized right away he needed stitches. That’s also when the blood started really pouring out.

I had yelled inside for Cortney to bring me a couple of paper towels for the blood. I also started drying Sean and myself off, preparing for the trip to the hospital. I would have preferred an urgent care center, but at close to 7:00 PM, they where all closed. Cortney insisted on taking Sean herself, so I stayed with Ethan and our guests. Our guests weren’t really in the mood for swimming, so they left as soon as they were ready.

Cortney just phoned from the hospital, and she tells me Sean got three stitched for his cut. She is stopping by the store to pick up some Tylenol for Sean and will be home soon. I guess I’ll write Sean’s tale of the events tomorrow.
