Auston Uncategorized

Lil Man

Well, yesterday was a bad bad bad day! I got a call at work around 11:30 from the school nurse. Auston hit hose nose pretty hard on the metal stairs going to the slide. I thought, ok… Hes a boy with a bump no big deal! Well, when i get there, i see its a lot worse than i had thought. He had a 1 1/2 inch gash across the bridge of his nose, that was open down about 1/2 and inch. His skin just dangling from the top of his nose, and oozing pretty badly. It was absolutely horrifying. So off to the ER we went.

6 hours of ER time, Auston got 3 stitches on the bridge of his nose, to pull the skin back together. He has a small hairline fracture in his nose that they really cant do anything about. He sadly went home with his dad. It was hard to let go of him. All he wanted, was to come home with mama for cuddle and love. -sigh-

We took a few pictures, that i will have to get off my phone here soon. He was a champ about getting the stitches. He was a perfect little boy, didnt wince once! He got a stuffed tiger, about 10 stickers, and two mini buckets of ice cream! And of course, attention from every nurse in the ER =)

ETA: Here he is (In the car on the way to the ER) with his nose boogered up.
