No more monkeys jumping on the bed.....PRESTON!!!!!
On August 17th Preston had a little accident. This was our first bloody accident that sent us to the emergency room. We are not 100% sure what happened, but from what we can understand from him and the set up of our room, he was jumping off our bed onto the floor and hit his head on the dresser drawer on the way down.
I think it looked worse than it was because he never really seem to be in pain, I think he was just really scared. Aaron drove him to the hospital while I stayed with the girls and waited for Oma to arrive. Aaron said he cried the whole way to the hospital, but when I got there he was almost jumping off the walls....such a boy!
It took a lot of waiting, but Preston was patient and happy. They measured the gash on his head and said it was about 5cm. Wow! They used a liquid on gauze that numbed his head. It was really cold and I was told that would be the worst part. After about 20 minutes of the gauze on his head they began the staples. I held Preston hands and he was doing great. 5 staples in and no tears, but the 6, 7 and 8th made him cry a little bit, but he was tough. It broke my heart to seem him like this, but I was incredible proud of him.
We got to leave the hospital right after that and Aaron took him to get a milkshake and slushy from Sonic. And I headed home to get the girls ready for bed.
Here are some pictures, BUT ONLY LOOK AT THEM IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH OPEN WOUNDS.......IT'S NOT A PRETTY SIGHT!

I love my little man and I am so glad he is well and all better. The staples came out on Saturday and he is 100% back to normal. Thank you Lord for taking such good care of him!
