What a day!!!

Well we've had a proper Friday 13th today!... All was going reasonably well, until I got a call from school mid-morning to tell me Dex had fallen, landed on his head and there was a lot of blood.  I dashed off to school in a mad panic, and by the time I got there he was feeling sick and sleepy... his coat was soaked with blood.  We took him to the children's hospital... not too much hanging around this time before we were seen, and then they settled him into a bed where he was snoring in seconds.  A few hours later they cleaned him up and patched his head with steri-strips, and said we could take him home, but as soon as we got home we realised his wound was bleeding again!  So back to the hospital, where they took off the steri-strips (the wound's too swollen for them apparently), put a small dressing on, and we've got to go back on Sunday to see if it needs glueing instead.

Right, sorry for all the rambling... onto today's card at last!  It's my Sugar Nellie DT day, and I've made yet another white easel card - sorry!

Awwww poor Dex - sounds like he (ad you!) have had a rotten day!

Bet if he ends up with a scar though he'll be really proud of it!!!

Gorgeous card - as always, been loving the white easel cards. They are so elegant.

Hope your weekend is better.

Oh...the poor little chap. Head wounds are always such a worry and incredibly bloody but they seem to recover fairly rapidly (based on past experience with two sons!). I never tire of your beautiful easel cards Lisa!! xx

Sammy said...

Poor Dex! There's nothing worse than a trip to the emergency room with your kids! At least you got seen quickly! Don't think we've ever had a wait less than 4 hours long! :-(

Love your card by the way... So adorable! x

Sue said...

Oh Lisa what a worry that must have been for you. Hope poor Dex is feeling better today and that the wound heals quickly. I used to get a phone call on a regular basis about my middle son Aaron - he was always so accident prone - not much better as he has got older lol!!!
Love your gorgeous card - fabulous design and sweet image.
Have a wonderful weekend.
