Mack’s First ER visit

MackER

Mack's first ever visit to the Montreal children's hospital was yesterday afternoon. He had a little hockey stick to the mouth action (a friend whacked him just as they were starting to play street hockey) and cut his lip badly. His teeth and jaw are ok and the lips are one of the fastest healing parts of the body so they don't stitch it up. Mack’s a tough guy! He’s feeling better and was okay to eat dinner a little bit later. This was probably one of the quickest ER visits ever. We were in & out in about an hour.

Here’s his lip after it was all cleaned up. A nice deep cut & it’s swollen. Of course this had to happen just a few days before his daycare graduation. We’ll keep icing it and hope that it heals enough before graduation!

Ahhh… the life of a mom of 3 boys. Just your typical Sunday afternoon ER visit.

Ahhh Alexis cut hers open when she was like 2, they had to stitch it though, it was really bad. She still has the scar. Hope his heals up nice and fast!

Poor fella! I hope he's okay and it doesn't leave a scar.
