Stitches

7 Oct

This afternoon I was sitting at the computer in the living room trying to sign us up for dental insurance when Ruby suddenly screamed and then ran in from the kitchen. She was completely naked and covered in blood.

It was terrifying.

I grabbed Ruby and saw that she had a deep cut on her left thumb, between the base and the joint. Fingers bleed a lot so it seemed much worse than it actually was. She had climbed onto the counter and opened a keurig cup with a sharp knife from the knife block, cutting herself in the process.

The cut looked bad enough that I decided to take her to the ER. Fortunately Matty was able to come with us because it would have been a rough trip alone. The doctor was excellent and did end up giving Ruby four stitches . To do this they strapped her to a body board, leaving only her left arm free. You can imagine how much Ruby enjoyed that.

She seems fine now and I am just grateful that it wasn’t worse.

Waiting for the doctor:

    Do you think she learned her lesson? I think I would have soiled myself. I freak out when Ellie pulls the blanket over her head when she’s sleeping!
