The Physical Toll...

When does it pay to have a surgeon in the family??? We always called him for things like, "my kid has a runny nose and is crying a lot... what should I do." I'm sure he rolled his eyes more than once at our calls... If I had to guess his favorite calls were the ones about strange rashes Ben had... all those rashes....
So again my question....
When does it pay to have not just a Dr. in the family, but a surgeon?

When you are helping your favorite big sister move and your baby girl falls on a dangerous metal moving ramp and splits the back of her head open. (blood everywhere--sorry no pictures of that) Only 5 free stitches later this is what Abbey had to say about it... for several days.... over and over..., "I got an owiiiiiies. Uncle Dayne fixed it." Then she would scratch the back of her head.

Even when their life flashes before your eyes, they still say the cutest things that make you smile!

Poor little Abbey - what a sad face. I'm glad she is doing okay now. Oh, and thank you for not saying more about Ben's rashes...

How sad! At least you got free stitches! I hope abby is feeling better.
I agree with amber, thank you for the lack of info on bens rashes!

i guess it speaks well for you as a mother that when your child was bleeding you went to her aid instead of taking photos for the blog.

so young to have gone under Uncle Dayne's knife already!

If anyone would like to know more about our medical history just let me know and I will announce it next testimony meeting....

I have to admit I do have pictures of the blood and stitches but I didn't post them; ben said no. I'm a good mom really... I wonder if Child Services ever check blogs.

always report child abuse!

I am not sure what your brother-in-law is holding in that picture, and I am pretty sure I don't want to know were it goes! I am just hoping that it has nothing to do with Ben's rash!!! : ) I am glad that Abbey is ok. You are a great mom!
