Clara's Stiches

Clara was dancing around the living room in a tutu when she suddenly fell down and smacked her head into the coffee table. I immediately scooped her up and ran into the bathroom to get a towel to stop the bleeding. When I got her settled down on the couch, I removed to towel to check things out. The cut was gaping open but there was hardly any blood. I thought she probably needed stitches but the lack of blood was throwing me off. I couldn't get ahold of Sam so I called my BIL to get his opinion. When I sent him a pic, he said she should probably go in. As I was trying to figure out where to take her, Sam called back and said he could come home and take her in. 
After three hours in the ER, lots of screaming and a trip to the dollar store, she came home with 3 stitches on her beautiful face.
She has been healing well and I think scarring should be minimal thanks to the wonderful skin of a kid.

  1. Ouch! That's worse than I imagined. I'm sure it will heal nicely though--you're right, kids have better healing power than we do.
