Sydney's First Emergency Room Trip!

Such a busy year it has been already!  We started 2011 off quietly at home with the kids.  Tim was sick and went to sleep at 7:30.  We were out watching the massive firework shows on both ends of the street while Tim rested and recouped!

It's the start of a new decade, already!  In high school I remembered that meant one of those decade long compilation CD's with all the popular songs that they sample on late night tv.  Haha!

2011 means Tim and I will celebrate 20 years together (instantly feel OLD), 15 years of marriage and our 20th high school reunion!  There are so many good celebrations to look forward to in the months ahead.

January started off to be a little crazy!  On the 15th, Sydney had a little accident with a barstool falling on her toe at my parent's house.  It happened just moments of us leaving to go home (isn't how that always works)??!!  We rushed her to the Emergency Room, her first trip!

After stiches and all bandaged up!

Luckily, we went to a brand new hospital close by and we were able to walk right in at 9:30pm on Saturday night.  I thought we would be in for a good 3-4 hour wait.  So we were lucky.  Sydney was actually much braver than her momma who almost fainted after it happened.  She had to get numbing shots on both sides of her toe and she squeezed her hands together really tight but didn't cry.  We were so proud of her.  The barstool landed right in the middle of her left toenail which was hanging by a thread.  Her toe was lacerated (I'll leave that picture off)!!!  You could almost bend the whole tip of it back.  I couldn't look!!  Sydney had nine stitches and the x-ray showed that it wasn't broken...amen!! 

We had to dress it and Neosporin and bandaid her toe up for a few weeks.  She got to skip P.E. for two weeks and be at the front of the line so no one would step on her toe.  This also meant no tumbling class for awhile.  She's so active, this was going to be difficult!! 

Thanks goodness her toe is on the mend now and today is week 4 of no tumbling class.  This MUST change since my little active girl is now best friends with the couch and Good Luck Charlie!!

How is 2011 treating you?
