Yesterday evening after dinner, the kids were in the other room. It turns out they were in on our bed (which usually means they are goofying around like they aren't supposed to be on our bed). Sarah was trying to get Emily to "mind" (which for her usually means hitting or pushing) and Emily ended up falling off the bed and hitting her head on something (the dresser?) Emily came running out with blood splotches on her shirt. I looked for the source of the bleeding and realized it was coming from her head. I grabbed a napkin from the table and applied pressure. The bleeding stopped fairly quickly, but the wound was pulling apart and about ½" long. We called the after hours message service and waited for the doctor to call back. He confirmed that it sounded like it needed stitches, so off we went to the ER.
Emily ended up with 2 staples (so they didn't have to shave a spot in her hair)
If it showed, they might have done more, I suppose.
We have to go the doctor to get the staples removed in a week.
