Almost, But Not Quite

So, it was a run of the mill weekend at our house... Coleman fell about 15 feet out of a tree and Christian cut his finger pretty badly and passed out.

After shimmying up the tree on Saturday, Coleman gave a repeat performance on Sunday. He made it to the top no problem. But then he tried to climb over into the tree and the branch he grabbed broke and he came tumbling down! Coleman was fine (that kid has double the number of guardian angels that the rest of us have... or rubber bones!) He stood up, dusted himself off and went on his way with only a scrape on his back.

Christian cut himself while working on a bow he is making. I heard him cry out and went to check on him. We put pressure on the cut which was bleeding pretty badly. While I was trying to see how badly it was cut, he said, "My head feels kind of funny." I grabbed him under the arm and tried to get him to a chair as he turned white as a sheet and his eyes rolled back and he fainted dead away! I got him down to the floor while still trying to keep pressure on his finger. He was only out a few seconds. Jim walked through and casually said, "What happened to him?" I told him that Christian had passed out. "WHAT?!?" And then that he had cut himself pretty badly. "Do you want to look at it and see what you think?" "NOPE" he said! (Jim doesn't do blood, either!) I debated whether or not to take Christian in for stitches but decided that if wound glue was good enough for Carolyn's chin, it would probably work for Christian's finger! He's fine, too.

So, no Blue Ridge ER.... yet!

Update**
When I told Coleman that Christian had passed out, he said, "I wish I'd have seen it!"

A trip to the ER is never good. You have wound glue?

Being a hypochondriac I can guarantee we would have been in the ER. Poor Sydney

You forgot to mention Coleman's line about Christian passing out.

no video of the repeat monkey performance? probably for the best!

Wound glue rocks... as a boys' mother, I'm sure it's a necessity (oh, and the mother of a girl who arm farts ;) I probably need to pick some up to keep Chris together!

Can't believe he passed out! craziness

Wound glue is THE BEST. The nurse in the ER said that the over the counter kind (NuSkin) is better than what they use in the ER.

Why do I get the feeling that with 3 boys this is a glimpse into my future?!?!?
