A new scar for Alihan
I'm cleaning and Julia and Alihan are screwing around (for lack of a better word) and I hear a "thunk" followed by Alihan screaming his head off and holding his head over my freshly folded clean laundry--which isn't so clean anymore. I went over and pick him up. Blood--all over the place. My clothes look like something from a crime scene from CSI! I ran upstairs with him, grab a towel and hold pressure against his forehead--while he continues to scream! Got the first aid kit--which was not in a good place (thanks Ted!) and tried to clean up this screaming , squirming, very bloody child. Big old gash on his forehead. Finally got the bleeding to stop after 20 minutes. It was a debate---stitches or no stitches. Finally, after Ted got home--we approximated the sides and taped the heck out of him. Ted and Chewie now have matching scars. No--not the roller blading scar. The scar from when Ted was about 4 years old, decided to play Bugs Bunny, put a pair of pj bottoms on his head (you know--ears) and ran into a thermostat. I think he was chasing his sister if I remember the story correctly. Yes--I wanted boys. I really need to have my medication adjusted!!! In the meantime, I think I restock the first aid kit. Something tells me I'm going to need it--ALOT!!!
