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.
