Sunday night, about an hour and a half before we were supposed to leave for church, Brooke fell and hit her head on the corner of my desk drawer. Head injuries are never good, and often result in excessive bleeding. However, after half an hour of putting a cloth on it, the blood had not stopped, so we all took a trip to the ER. Brooke was an amazing little trooper. She was numbed, which made the rest of the ordeal much easier to bear. The doctor gave her shots, cut her hair, and sewed her up with three stitches. You can see the event has not dampened her energy or her crazy spirit. Many of our church members were praying for her, and we thank God that it was not more serious, and that she handled it so bravely.
Oh my word! I feel so bad for her. When Mackenzie cut her head, the only thing I had in the van to soak up all of the blood was a diaper. So, we walked into the ER with a diaper on her head :) I guess there are benefits to still having kiddos in diapers!
So very thankful that Brooke is okay. It is always scary when a child is hurt. Love AJ
Kids and the ER they just go together like fries and ketchup or maybe oil and water? I don't know...all of mine have been and more than once...and sometimes because their Momma freaked out over nothing. Glad to see Mackenzie is still smiling...
Scary! But, boy, oh boy - did she bounce back. She's definitely your kid, cousin!
