Trip to the ER...

So just before bedtime this evening Wyatt took a hard tumble (suprise, surprise) and split his chin open (on the carpet of all things!) It was bleeding a lot and we thought his teeth had gone through his lower lip until they checked at the emergency room. Its kind of between his lower lip and chin. We put pressure on it with cold paper towels and got him in the car immediately.

The local hospital ER waiting room was ridiculous and they couldn't give us any indication of wait time, although it looked like hours. So we ended up driving to the one where he was born and the total time we were there was 1.5 hours. They were great. He ended up getting three stitches which they have to remove in about 5 days. :( It was SO hard to watch. He was such a good boy though, and they gave him a little Bob the Builder backpack ;). (I'm fairly certain he will never enjoy Bob quite the same again, though.)

When they were holding him down to put the stitches in he kept sobbing "See mommy, See mommy", and it was breaking my heart!! Poor little guy!!! I'm sure this won't be the last time, but it was scary and so sad. He's sleeping soundly in bed right now and I feel like I finally breathed a sigh of relief for the first time in four hours...I will update later with pictures. Someone needs to tell him that just because his nickname as a baby was "Little Bruiser", it doesn't mean he has to live up to it.
