Logan's ER Visit

We haven't seen the boys' friends, Isabel and JoJo in a while so we made a visit to their house to play. Right before we were about to leave I hear crying coming from upstairs. Meredith and I ran up to find Logan holding his bloody hand out. I thought that there was a cut on his hand until Meredith turned Logan around and my eyes slowly went from the blood stains on his shirt, up his neck to head where there was a lot of blood. I saw a small puncture wound and knew immediately that he needed to go to the hospital.

Upon arriving the Dr checked him out and cleaned the wound which was several inches in length. He was given a topical numbing agent and then an oral dose of morphine. After all was finished, he walked away with 13 staples. Thank God for that hard head!

I won't post pictures of the wound with the staples in it because it hurts my heart to look at it and I don't want to subject any of you to that. Below you'll find pictures of Logan with the pot that he fell on. Apparently he fell off the top bunk and his head was the first to hit the pot which was sitting on the floor upside down. He hit the bottom of the pot with such force that his head dented the pot and the part that came up from the pot was what caused the gash. Bizarre.

We're so thankful to God that he is ok. Please pray for a swift recovery and no infection of the wound. Momma is a queasy one so with Daddy gone it falls on me to lather the wound up with antibiotics....greeeaat.
