On the third day of Christmas....blahblahblah...one bloody headwound.....

OH MY SWEET JESUS hates me give me a break.

Bubbles got this from Santa (maybe Satan Santa hates me).

And that, combined with a really stupid catapult-the-baby-brother-from-the-pillar 'idea' of his sister's, resulted in this:


(What you don't see here is the picture of my absolutely calm grim and blood-covered face)


And one visit to the nearest urgent care facility. Where the doctor took one look at my surly child and suggested that we would have 'better luck' if we cleaned out his wound.



This is not blood. Just the betadine solution.

'Better luck' apparently meant that one parent would hold him down while the other parent inappropriately took pictures tortured him with small gauze squares.

(I should have been a nurse. Except that I almost threw up three times while cleaning it.)

Then the doctor came back in and snipped a few bloody hairs out of his way and glued the wound shut. (Seriously? For $150 I get to clean it out myself and some glue??)



He was pissed.



She is so grounded.

(As in, her favorite gifts have been taken away and she is grounded from everything.)
(Yes, everything, and please pity me, because guess who suffers the whining?)






The end.

oy. Oy. OYYYYYYY!!!!!!

And I can just hear the whining. Epic, I presume. Good luck with it, and I hope Santa swings by for a return visit bearing a bunch of cocktails to relax you while simultaneously fortifying the will.

Poor kiddo. Poor mommy.

Holy shit.

Moo cut her head open when she was a toddler. I swear I thought her brain would fall out there was so much blood.

Took her to the hospital and they did the same thing. Superglue.

So I know how you felt when you got there babe. But for me it was free. Na na nana na...

Sorry. Hugs babe.

Yes, you should have been a nurse. I've heard the barfing urges goes away.

Glad everyone is alright. :(

Ooohhh, poor baby! I can't believe they made you clean it yourself. Poor all of you ('cept Supergirl)!

Mama Deb said...

Ouchies. Poor bubbles :(

Tracey said...

Holy hell, it could have been so much worse... Thank God he's ok!

And, wait. YOU cleaned it out??? WTF?

RoseRedHoofbeats said...

OH WOW! Poor Bubbles!

Yeah... they don't use stitches on scalp wounds unless they're really big because the skin is so tight... if it makes you feel any better it's uber-special sterile glue?

But seriously, he made YOU DO IT? If that had been my baby all I would have been able to do is clutch her and wibble.
