Not Again!

Tonight Bryan was cutting a pencil to make a crossbow (he's pretty creative that way). Anyway...he was standing right beside me using Jeff's pocketknife to make a groove in the pencil. You know the rest, right? The next thing I know, he was saying "Oh no Mom!". Never a good thing to hear when your son is holding a knife!

So, we went to visit our friends at the St. Joe East Emergency room. A huge thanks to Dr. Guy who did a REMARKABLE job keeping Bryan well informed and calm while she was suturing his finger. Also, props to the nursing staff who were tremendous as well! They really know how to run an emergency room over there!

Last, but most certainly not least... a HUGE thanks to God for watching out for Bryan. He missed slicing the tendon in his finger by "a suture's width" according to the doc. That's not a lot- basically the width of a piece of thread. Had he hit it, we would have been in surgery right now. God is good all the time, and all the time, God is good.

Bryan says he is going to have a great story to tell tomorrow at school!

I'm headed to bed... this ER thing is exhausting.

Yes, and we are really getting paranoid about getting calls from you guys telling us you are on your way home from the ER (AGAIN!). We are so thankful that it wasn't any worse and so proud of how brave Bryan is in all these "emergencies".
