Kyle and The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad DayJune 5, 2008
Well, we had kind of a nasty day today! Around 10:30 this morning, I was folding laundry on our bed and Kyle was playing on the bed with the pile of clean clothes. He stood up on the bed, tripped or something, and face planted into our headboard, gashing his head right along his eyebrow! I ran him over to our medicine closet, grabbed a cleansing wipe and started to try and clean it. Blood was pooling up everywhere, and it got all over our wall. Kyle refused to let me clean it, so I held him down while I stuck a big bandaid on it, and left for the doctor. Well it turns out that Kyle needed four stitches. Awesome. 😦 They sedated him, which was kind of scary. He kept staring at me weirdly, or he would stare somewhere else and then suddenly start screaming and arching his back. The doctor said it was normal, and I was warned before hand that he would act strange, but it was still scary. And the worst part is, Kyle’s body just didn’t react well to it and he was never fully sedated, so they went ahead and started stitching him up anyway! I had to hold his arms during the procedure. Around the third stitch, I started feeling really hot and sick in my stomach, around the fourth stitch, I was seeing things, and hit the floor so I wouldn’t faint. It was a horrible 3-hour doctor visit, but we made it through, and Kyle took a two hour recovery nap. He’s still a little tipsy, though, poor guy!
