Some Injuries

Fred was wounded and had to get a staple in his head. The doctor said, "Hold him tight, this is going to hurt." Fred merely winced. I'm not going to detail what happened but you can watch the following movie for a hint.

My pedal fell off my bike during a triathlon. This is what I was thinking:
Maybe I can pull out of it.
Thank you, helmet. (As my head hit the ground.)
"Ow. Ouch. Oh." Repeated many times over the next half hour.
RIP helmet and shifters. Also damaged, knee, hip, shin, knuckle.
On the mend. I think this is the stage from which road rash gets its name. It was very itchy.

This is Stella's finger. This injury is significant for two reasons.
1. It happened right after the long process of picking out fabric at Joann's. Right as I was ready to checkout Stella came crying to me. Still not sure how it happened.
2. I went straight from Joann's to the instacare where I spent an hour trying to keep Fred from getting into things he shouldn't and then was sent home with a bandaid. That turned out to be a very expensive bandaid.

you were ever so calm after freds injury- I guess you are used to it by 3 and Fred is just durable!

I sure hope your road rash is healing without major scars. like... is that picture recent of you pulling up the green shirt- I sure hope not! but it will probably be a pleasant reminder your whole life!

Fred is the toughest kid ever... except Ella, who scares him.

Arrggg! For all of those. Especialy the expensive bandaid one because that would be so frustrating. Starting with having kids at the Joanne fabric store (hate taking them there)

Oh Katie! I'm so sorry.

I hope everyone one has healed properly. I laughed out loud of the video of Fred and the guilty imp hiding behind the box.

You may need to build yourselves a padded room, and camp out in there for a while. OUCH!
