We had a little accident today. Sarah was pushing Ginni and Edward in a sort of porch swing on an A frame. She pushed a bit to hard and pushed the frame over and it landed on her head. Lots of blood but in the end, she didn't even get a stitch. She has been pronounced as having a Knot on her head.

Something you would go through for her if you could. But you can't.

I remember our little girl, first time, going down the steps head-first. Blood everywhere!

My wife screamed and panicked. I was a young Airman with just First Aid training but apparently that was enough because I sent my wife for a towel. By the time she got back I had stopped the bleeding and by the time we got to the base hospital we were playing and laughing.

I signed Betty up for the next First Aid class and she has been taking car of me now for ..mmnfx... years.


You can tell us, who panicked at your house?

Lots of small blood vessels in the scalp. Small wounds bleed like stink and scare the beejeebers out of people, especially parents. You really cant bleed to death from a scalp wound unless there's like a chainsaw or something involved. Glad everybody's OK.

I couldn't really panic, I wasn't there when it happened. I was working overtime, but I got there before the ambulance left. At any rate, I have been doing what I do now for 20 + years now and kinda got the panic part wore out of me.

Good to hear your daughter is going to be fine.

As a parent myself, I know how shaken a person can get when their child gets injured. I hate those trips to the E.R.

Why was there lots of blood in the end? :dunno: Unless, of course, you were talking about the top end. :rofl:

Glad it weren't worse. :hugs: Kids have a way of testing our hair's ability to keep color, and keep attached.

Glad she's okay, Bullman!

My hubby had a full head of hair when God blessed us with two little girls.

BUT raising them up to the dating age, my hubby lost quite a bit of that hair. Now that they are both married, what is left of his hair is quite white, including the goatee that he sports.

(It's actually quite hot, now. That just tells you that MY taste, as well as many other women I know, has grown old with HIM, too! :rofl: ) :supergrin:

I should probably explain this a little better. when the swing frame came down, it knocked Sarah down and trapped her, the swing itself landed on top of Ginni and she couldn't get up either. Edward was the only one that was free. Ginni sent him inside to get the phone so she could call for help, she also sent him in to get a towel for Sarah's head. He was the little hero of the day, and it marks one of the few times that he listened and did what he was told to do:whistling:

...

Looking at your Avatar, did Bull drag you into this house of ruffians?

Bull, one thing I've always gotten a kick out of is the fact that even the smallest, no stitches necessary, head wound bleeds like you came in second in an axe fight.

Glad it's turning out as a lesson and nothing that's gonna last.

Yep.
He gave me a shooting lesson once. Pulled a new unfired 10mm out of the box and shot a 480 score.

Also, he's originally from OK and I spent a lot of time during my career in Oklahoma. It is my adopted second home.

So we converse without the accent problem.

Damn, I might have to go visit Hillsville this year even if the cousins aren't there. If I remember rightly it's Bull's turn to buy dinner :animlol:

If you do make it to Hillsville this year, give me some warning so I can work a few extra traffic days to pay for the Peking.
