Slacker? Or Preoccupied By Blood....

I'm slacking when it comes to the blog world lately. I'm blaming it on Spring Fever, but I think it's more like Hay Fever.

I really didn't intend to leave the picture of the purple toe up for two weeks. At this point it's just a memory. Yes, the nail is gone, but a brand new nail is already peeking out. Children heal so very fast!

Last night, this same child stood in his car seat and swung a 16x20 picture frame that was hanging on the living room wall. Before I could move, it was falling....falling on my baby's head. Thankfully, he saw it falling and ducked his head down. It happened in slow motion. Glass shattering, running...running but not moving?

Of course, I panicked. Usually calm and level-headed in an emergency, I screamed loud and long as I snatched him away from danger.

I was too late. There was blood. (He takes a blood thinner.) It looked like a river of blood. It was everywhere and his little hand was swiping at it, trying to clean it off of his leg....smearing, smearing.

The seven year old was so scared. He wanted the ambulance. He was crying, sobbing for his brother.

The cut on his hand, or puncture I should say, is small, but it took a lot of pressure to stop the bleeding. He also has two very small cuts on his cheek and nose.

Why is this child so busy? Why is it always the one that you feel the need to protect? After a short time, it was also a memory...a memory that is wedged in this mama's mind.

These pictures were actually taken before all of this happened, but I wanted to share the closeness of two brothers. A couple of happy memories from yesterday....

Playing outside on the porch....

and playing a game on the computer.I'm forever thankful I can share happy memories of yesterday. A tragedy was diverted. A blessing received, indeed!
