This little boy makes me smile and laugh every single day. I love him sooo much! Now, that's not to say that he doesn't drive me crazy every day as well, especially with his penchant for dumping out boxes of cereal and packages of crackers in the family room and peeing on the stairs (hasn't happened for a few days) lately. But he is so much fun to have in our family. He is so full of life and personality. He loves to sing and perform tricks and dances and do anything he can to get a laugh out of people. I hope he will carry this trait throughout his life. He loves to share and have fun and play with his brothers and sister; He loves everyone and everyone loves him. Happy Birthday Little Rexy Poo our lives wouldn't be the same without you!
On Friday night Gracie spent the night at her friend's house and on Saturday morning they were going outside to the backyard and she slammed the door on her finger.
Honestly, she didn't cry the entire time, she may have cried just a little right when it happened but I wasn't there so I'm not sure. The Dr. told us later that he had another smashed finger, not even half as bad as hers, on an older boy later that day and he was crying up a storm. The Dr. didn't have the heart to tell him he just had a seven year old girl in there who didn't even cry a bit.
The fingernail was only attached at the very top and was just barely hanging on. I thought they would just remove it but the Dr. said it is better to save it because it preserves the nail bed and heals better that way. So he put two stitches in it to hold it on. It will eventually fall off when the new nail begins to grow.
She was really digging all the attention that she was getting from the whole thing. Special visitors, everyone noticing her huge bandaged finger, well wishers. So this has really turned into one of those "cool" things that happens to kids and now she'll have a great battle scar story to tell. She gets the stitches out on Saturday.
