They immediately set up the table and chairs while Matt and I worked in the yard. Later in the afternoon Megan and Molly were playing with the dinosaur. Mind you - this thing is HEAVY and Megan dropped it on her foot! I was right there and could tell from the look on her face that she was hurt and scared. I looked down at her foot and there was blood everywhere, coming out so fast! By the time I got to her, it was already puddling up. I screamed for Matt and he came to both our rescue. We wrapped her foot in a towel and poured some hydrogen peroxide on it. We could tell it was a decent cut - going all the way through to the bottom of her foot!
She was so brave and only cried when we said it probably needed stitches. Matt loaded her into the car and took her to the ER. I was sad I couldn't go too, but I stayed home with Molly and Wyatt. It was hard to put my sad, hurt girl into the car and wave goodbye, but I knew she was in the best, strong, safest arms possible with her Daddy. And Daddy took care of me too - keeping me updated with calls and texts and pictures every few minutes.
It was a long process, with x-rays to make sure nothing was broken, a BIG shot and 4 stitches. But Megan was such a trooper, very patient and sweet. Even smiling while waiting for the Doctor. When I called her to check in, she even wanted to talk with her sister and brother to tell them she was okay! What a lover. All evening, Wyatt kept saying "dumb dinosaur" over and over. Too funny.
Look at that bruise!)
(All bandaged up. No shoes for a few days.)
Her beauty takes me by surprise sometimes.)
We still don't know who delivered the stuff to our door. Whomever you are, Thank You! The table and chairs are a huge hit...(but the dinosaur is now in the trash!) Megan wanted some extra snuggles (and so did I) so we let her stay up when the other kids went to bed. She and I curled up on the couch and watched the Miss USA pageant. She finally passed out at 10PM.
She's staying home from school today. Kind of hard to play when you can't wear shoes and you have to hop everywhere! She's the most upset that she'll have to miss gymnastics this week. She's been a tough cookie, never complaining or saying that it hurts. Stitches come out in 10 days and then we'll be back to normal.
