Mari's cut was deep. After about an hour, we were wheeled back to a room.
They determined that she would need stitches and she was so brave! The numbing shots hurt a lot and she screamed loudly for a long time. Broke my heart. But what was even worse was that she was not numb for the last stitch. The doctor did it without any pain medication at all. Poor girl screamed all over again but then it was done. Was really hard to watch that and be helpless. She had stitches for nine days. I think that she enjoyed using crutches and getting extra attention. But all of us would rather that she not have had to experience that!
We had a nice afternoon out at the beach paddle boarding and kayaking. Was impressed that both the girls managed to stand up and not fall! That takes a lot of teamwork and balance!
Good little kayakers as well.
While everyone else was in the water, I was happy collecting sea glass. There was tons of it.
Which would explain why seconds after this picture was taken, I found Madi on the beach with her foot covered in blood. So much that I could not even tell where she was bleeding from. I immediately packed up while Garrett ran home to get his car. I then carried Madi off the rocky beach back up to the road where a lifeguard with a first aid kit met us as well as Garrett's mother, who is a nurse. They cleaned her up as best they could and Madison and I were off to the ER
My mother frequently sends me surprise clothes. So when this dress came I tried it on thinking it was for me. Well, it was very tight and too short. And then I thought-maybe it was for Emilie! Sure was-and it looked super cute as well!
