Stitches and Rocky Road

We were at a birthday party for the boys' best friends (also triplets) who were turning 6yrs old and had only made it about 15 minutes into the fun when this little accident occurred. . . oy! DS3 got hit in the head with a balloon that was weighted down by a rock. . .yep, you read that right. . . a ROCK! Who ties up a balloon with a rock?! That just doesn't sound safe to me and as evident from the picture above, it is NOT safe. We had to load up and make a visit to the local ER/Urgent Care, where my baby got 2 stitches. I must just say, that the entire staff there was absolutely incredible. . . truly just amazing! They were so friendly, kind and just overly gracious in their dealings and treatment with our whole family. The nurse made sure all of the boys had toys when we went back to the room then proceeded to get them each a coloring book and box of crayons. Then to top it off, she brought them each a Popsicle from the freezer. . . God bless her, she was amazing, and really touched my heart with the wonderful care and graciousness she displayed with all of us. It was the best of a bad and unfortunate situation.
My Mom and sister and niece had come down to visit and watch the boys baseball game that night, but unfortunately we didn't make it (and our big boys represent 1/3 of the team - yikes!). But as always, Nana knows how to make ya smile. . . she had Rocky Road ice cream waiting for us when we arrived - yep, 3 whole containers! lol Boy, does Nana know how to fix boo-boos! :-)
