what a monday! XP

I can't believe how bad yesterday was!! I still just want to be in bed! I am sorry I haven't been posting as much, I've been lurking alot, lately.

got home, had dinner.......we were loading the dishwasher and as always, Matthew was pulling utensils out of it. and as always, i grabbed them and put them back. only this time, somehow, he got cut really bad!! he had a pair of metal tongs that i never DREAMED would be sharp! he had them towards the hinge, so i assumed when he cried i had accidently pinched him. i went to look, and his finger was gushing blood!!!! I felt TERRIBLE!!!!! I felt like such a BAD mom!!! apparently there was 1 tiny sharp edge on the inside of the hinge that sliced it open. *sigh* we couldn't stop the bleeding so we took him to the ER at 7. DH kept it covered and pressure on it, and every time we had to let go, he would just scream :bawl: the dr at the ER said it was borderline in need of stitches, if we left it open (since it was on the inside of his ring finger and close to the joint) it would take longer to heal adn had a greater risk of infection. so we decided to put him through the trauma of stitches. i had to take Gwyn out of the room, since her anxiety was so bad she was sobbing for him. i guess DH said he was a champ! he watched them give him the shots and put in the stitches, never pulled his hand away! he is truely all boy Smile they thought they would only need 1 stitch, but it didn't stop the bleeding, so he has 2. i'm sure it will be shown off after the trauma wears off by afternoon Smile he said this morning his "bandaid" hurt but his owie was better. LOL I have yet to see it, but will tonight when we have to redress it.
