On Friday night we were at a friend's house and the kids were all playing. All the sudden we heard screaming and crying and Eric went back to check to see what happened. Then I heard, "uhhh, Morgan, you should come back here."
During the playing Samuel's finger had gotten smashed in the door. It was bleeding a lot, but it was hard to tell how bad it really was. We decided to take him to the ER and I was glad to hear from the nurse, as soon as we got there, that we'd made the right decision.
After two trips to the ER (Friday night and Sunday morning) and another trip to the ortho specialist (this morning) we found out his finger is fractured and it was cut and damaged at the cuticle. He has five stitches and it seems to be healing well, we're just praying that the finger nail grows back. They said it will take about a month until we'll know for sure. His next appointment is a week from today where they'll take out the stitches and do another check up. We'd love prayers for our Sammy!
And, those ER trips? Well, thank goodness my friend Alli was there both times. It's so nice to have a familiar face in a situation like that and we even had her as our nurse when she came on her shift on Sunday. Friday nights are apparently crazy and very busy and we overheard and saw lots of interesting things in the waiting room. As soon as we got in the back it was quiet and peaceful and we had great doctors and nurses taking care of Samuel.
The pictures are blurry because they were taken with my phone. The first one was on Sunday right before the stitches (he was sedated for them) and the second one was in the waiting room on Friday night.
