In Lieu of Stitches

Ohhh my poor little Gagey.  He is so accident-prone (like his mom).  Today he tripped on a discarded sippy cup and landed chin-first on a footrest that one of the kids had turned upside-down on the carpet. 

I was on the phone with Ben when I heard Gage cry and went to check it out.  And when I saw this gaping, bleeding cut, with the little fat cells in there, I was like, "Oh, honey.  You'd better come home.  We have to go get this stitched up."  (We only have one car.  Which is so much fun.  But still better than having Ben gone.)

So Ben came home and we rushed him over to the pediatrician's office.  Luckily, this was a job not for stitches, but for that superglue stuff.  Ben went into the office with Gage and I stayed in the foyer with Micah.  Which was just fine with me.  I heard Gage's cries from down the hall, poor kid.

So now he's all glued together:
Here he is, in all of his luscious-lipped, eczema-and-booger-encrusted glory:
We went to a wonderful hole-in-the-wall Mexican food place for lunch afterward to celebrate.  Mmmm.

Oh, and hey, by the way, I'm going in for major surgery tomorrow.  Can you pray for me?  I'd appreciate it.

Poor gage!! Tinian is so accident prone too! He's had his wrist pulled out of the socket so many times I don't even remember. He got stitches a while back. I won't be surprised if he's my first kid to break a limb too! *SIGH* our crazy boys!:)
