Quilting Interrupted….

Well.  We made it ten years.  Ten years of boyhood before the first trip to the emergency room.  Last night, my 10 year old son, Alex, suffered a dog bite to his bottom lip.  Is there anything worse, Mom’s, than to see your child hurting?  I doubt it. 

I wasn’t outside last night when the bite occured but it sounds like my son tried to give a neighborhood dog a hug.  Not a good idea.  He didn’t know that some dogs don’t like hugs.  Our dog loves them!   He was bit and we were off to the ER.  Three hours and 8 stitches later, we were back home and off to bed.  What a brave little boy he was!  Today, he’s a little worried about getting his stitches taken out because then he’ll lose his “coolness”.  I assured him he would still be very cool. 

Here’s a pic of the damage, if you can handle it.

I’m so just so thankful that he’s okay.
