Last night, the boys were outside running around chasing Frisbees but with a twist that included light sabers and swords! Tate was trying to catch one and he ran into that “stump” in the mean time. I believe the “stump” won the encounter:) (By the way, the stump is about Tate’s height.) He was laid out on the ground crying loudly and bleeding. Cade came in to get us while Emma was frantic on the patio worried about her brother.
I went down there to check on him and made sure he was all right. There was blood from the outside of his face and blood inside his mouth. I thought he had messed up some teeth too but they seem to all be intact.
Here he is laid out on the sofa in the sitting area. I gave him a bag of frozen peas to put on his face because it was already getting puffy. He laid there holding the
ice peas and crying more. (None of my children have ever liked putting ice on a “bo bo”. So, it must have really hurt!)
He asked, “What was I doing and what happened?” Rob answered him. Then, he asked me the same thing a few minutes later. He just kept asking the same thing over and over again. We would answer again. We think he might have had a slight concussion.
He ended up eating supper and watching some of the winter Olympics before bed. He woke up this morning doing fine.
Below are a couple of pictures right after it happened:
This is what he looked like this morning!
We didn’t let him go out and play today. He had to stay inside instead. The children and I went to Wal-mart this morning to get groceries and then he was able to watch a movie. He wasn’t too worried about staying in while his brothers and sisters played. They even came in some and watched with him!
