as much as i love the thought of having a blog full and happiness, wonderful, pleasant thoughts,,, sometimes life gets in the way, and, well reality kicks in. life isnt always happiness, wonder and pleasant thoughts. this is what happened ~ my little man thinks it pretty cool to run everywhere he goes. he has always been that way. i dont blame him, he is pretty ultra fast!! last night after i got him all cozy in his pjs and ready for bed, he took off towards the family room from our bedroom (running ~ of course) and he tripped and fell into the fireplace in our bedroom. i heard it, i didnt see it. i heard the horrible "bonk" followed by a loud scream. i ran (he must get his desire to run from his mama) ;-). when i picked him up off the floor, i knew that a typical kiss and a "its all better" wasnt going to work this time. not a chance. we actually had to call 911 and, well to make a long, sad story short, we were taken to the emergency room where daniel got about 11 stitches above the skin and im guessing right around the same amount under the meat (so gross, i know). we wanted to make sure that everything was okay ~ his neck, spine, skull so we asked the doctor what we should do to insure his safety. the doctor said that there was no need for a x-ray, that he could see straight through to daniels skull, and could tell it wasnt cracked or damaged. we got home late, late last night (actually early this morning) and i thanked God one million times. and ill do it again, "thank you God that stitches was as bad as it got." sorry if you have a weak stomach (like i do), but i had to put up some pictures. trust me, these are the *clean* ones. he was such a champ. im so proud of my little man. love you dude!!!

Dude,
It killed me to get your voicemail and only hear "emergency room, Daniel, better now". Of course the phone cut out after that. Little dude will be proud of his stitches some day. Matt says they are rad. Daniel will always remember how his mama took care of him. So sorry for you all and his sweet head. Nice pics though. I know it's hard to think of that when our little ones are hurt.
