Warning Graphic Son's head meets barbed wire.

Valentine's Day afternoon, my 2 sons were out playing in the yard. Their big sister reminded them that they shouldn't be playing by the fences...not 5 minutes later my 5yo son came racing into the house to inform us that our 9yo son was bleeding.

Adam tried to run and crawl under the barbed wire fence. He cut the top of his head open and Dad and I ended up in the ER with him.

He received 3 staples and took it all like a real trooper. He only cried a little and I'm SERIOUSLY hoping that he learned his lesson.

OUCH!!!!! its amazing how they are able to staple it shut,

A few years a ago a boy in 4-H lost his finger horse playing. Him and his brothers were wrestling around and he was pushed down by the shut off, parked riding lawn mower.... his had was down by the blade and it cut one of his fingers clean off.

Dang boys!!!! Glad to know your boy will be alright

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

Omg . Luckily nothing worse happened. That seems serious enough.

Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Great laceration! had a relative do the exact same thing years ago but it resulted in 12 staples at least barbwire makes a clean cut. I'm assuming he was up to date with his tetanus?

I was SOOOO proud of myself, I took one look at the cut and grabbed a clean dishtowel out of the drawer and put it on his head, Everyone was staring at me and I said in my even toned, don't argue, don't freak out the kids voice, "Honey, (to my husband) Why don't you grab your jacket, we're going to take Adam to town and have this looked at." Husband thought we should try to clean up the wound and I just firmly said, " Would you go grab my purse, hun, I'm going to hold this towel here and we're going to go now."

Bill (hubby) finally got the picture after a couple seconds and we headed to the ER. We didn't flip out so neither did Adam. He was seen right away and we were done in the ER in about 45 minutes.

Adam said it hurt and we had to keep reminding him to not bite his bottom lip, other than that he handled it all very well.

Kelly, YES... that boy is UTD on EVERYTHING. This isn't his first rodeo with the ER.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
