Better Days Ahead

So yesterday morning as I was nursing my sore bum, Caleb and Eva were playing. I don't want to get into too many details but Eva ended up with a really bad cut on her forehead right at the hairline. Blood was flowing pretty rapidly and I called 911. I kept pressure on it with a towel and when they arrived (it didn't take them too long at all, actually) it was almost done bleeding. Eva was in good spirits by then and charming the heck out of the firemen and paramedics. She was smiling and saying "HI!" to all of them. They took her blood pressure and checked out the cut. It's about 1/4"-1/2" gash and they said she didn't need stitches. I signed a bunch of papers declining an ambulance ride, they gave Eva a beanie baby puppy and Caleb a little flashlight (the ones to check the pupils). Before they had arrived, I called a friend to come over in case I needed to take her to the hospital. She came over anyway and I was able to give Eva a bath and calm down without having to worry about Caleb. The rest of the day was a lot less dramatic and for that I'm grateful.

Today we are going to try and finish tiling the floor. I'm sidelined with my injury but I've got the kids signed up for a drop and shop at the Y for five hours this afternoon. The missionaries are coming over again, too. Hopefully it will be mostly done by tonight. Friday is the "deadline" when we are having Carl's grad students over for dinner.

I can only hope that there are better days ahead.

    I'm glad that Eva is o.k. That is scary!

    I hope you're feeling better too.

    There are better days ahead...and probably more bad ones too. (But you alread knew that, I'm sure.)

    I loved your Martha wreath so much I'm debating making one for our house. And I'm not a wreath person either. :>)

  4. I'm glad everything is ok with Eva! Its scary when they get hurt and there is lots of blood involved. This summer Leah got a cut to her cheek and we took her in to the hospitial, one plastic surgen and 8 stitches later she was fine. Its funny, she was in a really good mood in the hospital too. They bounce back like nothing happened at all. Hope your feeling better soon too!

    Hi Christy,

    Thanks for sending me the link to your blog. I was planning on checking out the skating pictures. I am so sorry things have been crazy, and your sore tail-bone to top it off. I am glad Eva was okay. I loved your wreath, I think it looks better than Martha's (don't tell her). Hopefully, the dinner went well, and the tile was finished in time. Things are on the upswing (hopefully).
