Baby Warrior loses in battle

January 18 2011

Sawyer's first battle scars!

Now I knew having a boy would probably be different than a girl particularly when it came to stitches, broken bones, etc...  I did think I'd have another year or 2 before our first ER trip.  Poor Sawyer got in a fight with our brick fireplace and clearly the fireplace won :(  

He was such a trooper playing with his cars and still climbing all over the place while we waited our turn.  They sedated him to stitch him up.  It was so heartbreaking.  Stitches, sure I was dealing ok with that.  Seeing my baby knocked out in a hospital bed brought tears to my eyes.  Such a sad sight.  

My heart and thoughts were with all the families with sick kids.  I truly couldn't stop thinking about how much strength it takes.  Here my boy is getting 3 stitches and I could hardly hold the tears back.  I am so grateful for my family's health.  A few hours after we arrived and Sawyer had time to come to we were home.  Fingers crossed he heals quickly and doesn't get a scar.

I'm so glad he is ok! My daughter split her lip on my husbands tooth when she was about 9 months old and I thought for sure she would need stitches but luckily I was just over reacting. Heres to a speedy healing!

Oh, that is so sad. I hope he's okay. I can't imagine something like that happening to my kids, but I'm sure it will eventually.

There is nothing worse than seeing your child like that. But don't worry if it scars, chicks dig scars ;) My son is a member of the 'zipper club' and his scar is really healing nicely.

This brought tears to my eyes! My son is going to be three in June and the crazy stunts he pulls I just can't believe it! I totally understand the being okay for the stitches, but seeing them knocked out I think I'd be balling my eyes out to! I hope he's feeling better by now. :)
