I guess David decided my birthday was not quite exciting enough... :o) About 5:30 this afternoon, David was working on his whittling, and cut himself. Now before you go *there*, David is a Boy Scout and has been taught how to handle a knife and has been closely supervised. But of course, it only takes one slip... So, this incident started with him running up the stairs hollering *HELP ME!* That scared the **** out of me! He was bleeding pretty good. So I told the girls to grab Jimmy, we were going to the ER. The cut was actually only about 1/2 an inch wide, but a little deep. But a nice clean cut, due to the sharp knife! (HA!) He ended up getting 4 stitches. He is such a good boy, he doesn't even flinch or cry when he got the shots or the stitches. Although he was shaking the whole time, he said later that all the blood had scared him...
But as any red-blooded boy (no joke intended!), now that the shock has worn off, he is quite proud of his stitches! :o)
Ok, I think we are done for the day... All the kids are in bed and I am just waiting for Jim to get home from work (he works second shift) so I can go to bed too... :o)
Thanks for visiting! Hope I did not gross you out too much... :o)
