Isaac’s first trip to the hospital

Before you read much more, let me start by saying that Isaac is fine, but he’s had his first set of stitches. But today, it was confirmed that we have a boy in the family. Isaac, in his two and a half years, has probably bled more in his short 2.5 year life span than both of the girls put together. We should have expected this. His father grew up in an Emergency room growing up, essentially due to me being constantly being a daredevil on my bike, playing tons of sports and just being up to all sorts of things. Well, today we’d had a great day at an amusement park in Phoenix, when towards the end, Isaac had an innocent mishap. There was a sharp edge on some bleachers that his knee didn’t get along with. He ended up getting 5 stitches to sew up a pretty impressive gash. And, like his dad, the cut didn’t bother him as much as 1. having to leave the park, and 2. the pain of taking care of it. All things were taken care of, and he was back to running around just after being out of the doctors room. He’s a trooper, and we’re glad he was ok.

...and now he's not. This is during the process of cleaning the wound out...he was not happy. They tried to entertain him with an iPad, I tried to talk to him on the phone..nothing was calming him down. Poor little guy!!!

Afterwards, it was neat...he was treated to his choice of toys he could take home for being such a brave little guy. He scored a pretty cool truck!

All done. Grammy and Grandpa were on hand to help Jen out, and he was enjoying his Popsicle...overall, he was pretty good.
