ER

Gracie gave momma and daddy heart attacks tonight. She climbed up on the ottoman, jumped onto a big rubbermaid container we use as a toybox and promptly slid off, banging her head on the entertainment center on the way down. Her instant cries were expected, but the half a face full of blood was not. Daddy and I rushed her to the ER where, luckily, grandma was working! Grandma cheered her up, gave her Pooh stickers and a popcicle. The doc was able to simply glue the cut and if I hadn't seen how deep it was myself I probably would have thought it was just a scratch. I tried to take a picture of it, but it's pretty hard to see. It's just below her hairline almost straight up from her eye.

you had this photo on facebook along with her eating hotdogs with ketchup. I thought you were pointing out how she got ketchup in her hair

SCARY - glad she is okay!

No, all that red is left over blood-after the nurses and doc cleaned her up!

I almost cried when she did that. It scared me thought i was having a heart attack. But having one on one time with Bri was fun
