"I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always e on my lips."
Yikes, I can't believe I'm actually writting about my little girl getting stitches...
Monday night Cami fell & literally split her forehead open. Thankfully Cam was home & helped keep both Cami & I from totally loosing it. After he cleaned Cami up the best he could we could tell she needed stitches. So we spent the evening in the ER. Thankfully the Lord moved us 3 minutes from the closest ER & the receptionist who checked us in took our paperwork straight to a nurse.
It still took a while, but finally our girl had to be strapped down & held by 3 people, including Cam! They sent me out of the room before they wrapped her up & tried to hold her still. There was a very nice lady in the hallway who has a grandaughter Cami's age & just kept talking to me & trying to distract me from listening to Cami scream. All in all they had to give her 5 shots, right into the open wound & 4 stitches to close it up. The docotor himself told us he didn't want to do it because he had a little girl at home & it was already breaking his heart to see Cami so upset, confused and scared.
My prayer request is that Cami isn't too traumatized by the whole ordeal at the ER. That is the one thing both the nurse & doctor told us usually happens. They say most kids who have to go through stitches, especially in the face area will get very upset for a while when you try & put them anywhere near someone in a white coat. Not a good thing when we have weekly doctor visits coming up for me, a hospital visit & ofcourse taking Cami back to get her stitches out!
Thankfully we are all doing fine, especially Cami. She is such a tough little girl & we know it will not be the last trip to the ER for her.
