It has been an eventful past few days to say the least. On Thursday, Brinley had her first trip to the Emergency Room. She fell while playing with her friend Deacon and hit her head. At first she was crying a lot but within ten minutes she was asking to get down to play again. However, the cut looked big enough that I was concerned so I decided to take her to the ER to have it looked at. I also wanted to make sure she did not have a concussion (even though she was acting just fine).
So we headed to the hospital and arrived around 5pm. I’ve come to realize that the term “Emergency” Room is used quite loosely. I showed up with my poor little, bleeding baby girl and the woman at the check in desk didn’t even look up at me. She just nodded and said, “just a few minutes dear.” I nearly jumped over the desk at her. However, she ended up being quite nice. We were at the ER from 5pm until about 10pm from start to finish. Brinley did extremely well. The doctors and nurses were awesome and made the entire experience as pleasant as they could. I honestly don’t think Brinley felt a thing and she was such a champ. She got six stitches near her hairline on the top right (left if looking at her) of her forehead. I am so proud of her!!
