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.
