Our First Trip to the ER

Well folks, we almost made it three whole years before making a mad dash to the emergency room for a child. If only our precious daughter could have held out a few more weeks. *Sigh. How do I have an almost three year old? It goes so fast.
Our ER visit wasn't too exciting but it did break us in with what to expect when you head to the emergency room. What did we go to the ER for, you ask? While helping to change the straw in the chicken's coop, Payton took a fall (under her daddy's supervision I'd like to point out) and landed right on some metal.

After some debate and a call to our doctor, they confirmed we should take her in. Her fall occurred at almost the exact same moment our doctor stops taking clients for the day. Again, great timing Payton! :)

We were lucky that no stitches were needed. They did numb the spot and glued it. Payton didn't feel a thing and loved all the attention (and stickers) she got.  
We were in and out in about 40 minutes. So now we are all hoping its at least another three years before we go back. We all came down with colds over the weekend so there may be a chance we will be making a trip to our doctor's office this week if we don't get on the mend soon.

Hope your week is going well.
