Last month, Warren was playing in Lilly's room. She wanted him out, and slammed the door -- not knowing his thumb was in the hinge side of the door.
Holy Cow...blood everywhere....lots of screaming...it was AWFUL. Elliott called me, and I went to their house to stay with Lilly (who was hysterical)...while they took Warren to the Emergency Room.
Of course, the four hour ER visit was the WORST part of Warren's nightmare. And he was lucky, of course, very lucky...but he probably will lose his thumbnail.
|And keeping a bandage on an active 3 year old is quite a challenge!|
|Luckily, Warren is right handed, so the big bandage doesn't stop him from doing anything important...baking...|
|Coloring...legos, trains, building, cooking, running...he's a VERY BUSY BOY.|
|When he's here, Uncle Ross, R.N., gets to put on the clean bandage.|
|Warren adores Lilly -- and it is quite mutual.|
Honestly -- I don't know who suffered more that night...Warren or Lilly.
Nobody gets through life without some mishaps...and I believe everything that goes wrong is a lesson...but I'm just saying -- with little kids -- things can go wrong IN A BLINK OF AN EYE.
Last Saturday, during a family party at my nephew's house, the kids were outside playing in the new snow -- and five year old Oliver fell into a window well and broke his arm.
Be careful, people!! IT'S A JUNGLE OUT THERE...
