God is so good.

Sophia's trip to Urgent Care
I was taking a nap today, Sunday, when all of the sudden I heard Brandon yell, "Erin! Get down here now." I still shudder thinking of that because it was the worst. Worst because Brandon is our level-headed guy. The calm one. I am the drama queen. So when he screams to get downstairs it's got to be something big. I woke up, groggy, and raced down the stairs tripping on the last step while hearing Sophia screaming and Ava crying.

Brandon was holding Sophia, who was bleeding from her head, over the sink. She had managed to pull our July 4th lights off the mantle, also pulling down a vase that hit her in the head. There was blood all over the kitchen, her shirt was soaked with blood and her diaper was too. It was horrible.

Turns out it was a head gash. And head wounds bleed a lot. But, when it's your little one-year old you just feel horrible. We washed her off. Got dressed quickly and took her to the Urgent Care.

At first the doctor said she was going to have to have stitches, but then said steristrips would work if she didn't pull them out. She did fine with them and is feeling lots better.

Brandon and I just kept on saying how bad it could have been. The vase was really heavy and it fell a good 4 feet. But for the grace of God. We just truly don't know how many times during our ordinary days we are saved. How many times God's protection saves our children. It just makes me truly grateful for Sophia and Ava.

For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.
Psalms 91:11.

Oh, crap, Erin. I'm sick even thinking about it. So, so, so sorry. And so, so, so thankful. Your precious Sophia . . . covered in blood . . . I cannot begin to imagine. Love you.

What Ali said. Wow. That just made my heart stop. Soooooo glad that beautiful little girl is okay!! Love you!

Erin said...

Thanks Jess, Ali and Marla. Yes, she is doing fine. In fact, she was trying to get into everything in the dr's office.

We are just so blessed she is okay and that she isn't messing with the band-aid covering the strips.
