|Our rainy view from the deck|
Our other big news of the month is the rushed trip I had to make two weeks ago to the ER. Thane tipped over backwards out of his seat in the front yard and landed smack dab on a huge rock that is part of our retaining wall. The cut was worrisome enough, but what scared me more was not knowing what his brain was doing in his skull. Head injuries scare me. Hubby was at work, but thankfully only in Hotchkiss, which I had to drive through to get to the hospital. He cut his day short and met me at the hospital. Nana and Papa live about five minutes from the hospital and were able to meet us there to take Spencer and Maycee home with them. After a long wait and a popsicle, Thane received one staple in the back of his noggin and was released. We made it outside in time to see a helicopter take off. This distracted him enough that the staple was quickly forgotten. After a week we took him back and had the staple removed. He is no longer in any pain, but will tell the story of what happened to anyone who asks him anything. "Hey Thane, how are you?" "I bonk head, rock." "What did you do today?" "I bonk head, rock." "What would you like for dinner?" "I bonk head, rock" "Are you ready for your bath?" "I bonk head, rock." You get the picture. Sometimes he brings it up out of the blue as we are grocery shopping or reading a nighttime story. I hope it does not traumatize him too much or for too long.
