BLOOD!" C-note came running into the house, wailing loudly, and indeed gushing blood. He had fallen against the side of our house out front, which is finished with decorative stucco. And, just for the uninformed, decorative stucco = sharp, stoney protrusions all over the wall. I wonder how much worse it would have been had he not been wearing a winter hat!
Thankfully it was March break so both of us were home at the time. Three stitches later it was all over. The nurses were very nice and held his hands while the doctor sewed him up. I don't think they were very busy at the time. ;)
