This post has icky pictures in it…read at your own caution.
I got a call from Kalissa early this morning. She said, “Did you see the picture I just sent you?” I said no..and then I looked. ewww!!!
She said Carver had come downstairs that morning before she did..and then next thing she heard was Carver screaming. She hustled downstairs to see a very bleeding Carver and this…he had bit his tongue. The thought is that he jumped down the last couple steps of the staircase and fell, biting his tongue.
After a call to his doctor, they decided that he’d need to go in and be seen. She brought Gannon to my house and brought Carver in to show me his tongue before she took him in.
It was icky. His tongue flopped rather then stuck out. I figured they would need to do stitches.
A short while later she messaged me and said, “Yes stitches. They tried in the office but he wouldn’t hold still so he would need to be put out to get it done.”
The doctor had a booked morning and being it wasn’t an “emergency”, they were to go and kill time and come back at 11:30am when his schedule let up.
Kelli happened to be town for a nurses meeting so I messaged her and told her to go help entertain Carver. A short while later I got this picture of Kelli and Carver at the park….
I can’t tell you how thankful I am that Kelli just rises to any occasion. She’s great with him. She’s always willing to drop her plans and do what needs to be done.
Shortly before noon I got a picture…
I knew it was bad but I didn’t realize it was so deep. UGH. YUK! It gives me the shivers to just look at it.
They ended up giving him a little gas and that put him out. Three stitches later he was back out again.
A bit later Kalissa sent this picture….ah. MUCH BETTER.
Grandma was done worrying.
This boy…he’s a load of trouble but I sure do love him. I am so glad that he’s okay. I’m glad that he’s got a good mommy and a good aunty to help him when I can’t be there.
Let’s hope this is the last time he jumps off the steps. They had been telling and telling him not to do it. But…Carver will be Carver.
