late last wednesday night, while i was trying to get things in order (getting ready and packing up for our trip to salt lake city thursday morning), malcolm had a little mishap. i was finishing up mail order emails, and he was cruising around the living room like he normally does, but then he tripped on his way past the recliner, and landed face first on the edge of the coffee table. he is new to this whole walking thing, and is just getting the hang of it, so he's still a bit clumsy.
a few tears, a little blood, 4 hours at the children's ER, and 4 stitches later, he was all fixed up. we arrived at wake med at 11:30 pm and checked out at about 3:15 am. we had to leave the house at 5:30 am to head to the airport, and i had barely packed a thing! needless to say, it was a very long night.
malcolm was really good the entire time. since we had to wait so long to actually be seen and treated, he fell asleep before the dr. came in to stitch him up. they put him in a papoose while he was asleep, gave him shots for the pain, and got two out of the four stitches put in before he woke up! what a little champ!
day one: the little cut, before being stitched up
day two: asleep at the airport, after getting four little stitches
day three: at my parents house in utah
day four: in grandma's tub (see the yellow bruise?)
today (one week later): still a bit red, but healing up fine!
