Who knew a simple kitchen barstool, albeit heavy barstool, could do such damage to one little girl's toe?! In typical MK fashion, she was trying to help me with Maddox by getting her down from a stool in our kitchen. Unfortunately, Maddox AND the stool came down at the same exact time and landed direct hit on MK's big toe.
After blood curdling screams, a call to 911 (have I mentioned before that handling traumatic/bloody incidences well is not my gift???) calls to a friend, and a trip to Urgent MD, we found ourselves seated comfortably by MK's side at our local children's hospital. Doctors aplenty came to see our girl and make decisions on her care. Finally, 12 hours after the injury occurred, MK was sedated and sewn up.
We arrived home to two big brothers who had spent their day decorating the house in anticipation of their little sister's arrival back home! MK was so happy to be home! (Maddox was sleeping when we arrived but awoke later with a fever of 102 - "it's raining, it's pouring....")
With a broken toe and stitches galore, it is bed rest/couch rest for our little one at least until Wednesday. Today has been lots of fun playing a new DS game, watching tv and resting.....late this afternoon she did mention the "I'm bored!" statement....ack, too early for that!
