I was at work last Wednesday when my cell phone rang. My mom was on the other line telling me that everything was okay, but Nolan fell outside on our front step and split his lip open. I could hear the little guy crying in the background and it broke my heart. She had taken him inside, cleaned him up and gave him some ice to put on his lip, but she thought that he'd need stitches.
I knew that I couldn't make it home quickly because my train only runs every half hour at that point in the day. I called Justin and he was able to leave work immediately. My mom met him at the plastic surgeon's office and the doctor was able to stitch him up very nicely.
My big boy got three stitches on the left side of his bottom lip. He cried when he saw the doctor, but Justin assured me that everything was over very quickly and he was up-and-at-em right after the whole ordeal. He gave his daddy a high-five after the doctor was done stitching him up. The stitches are clear and will dissolve on their own so we won't have to go back in and scare the poor little guy.
When I arrived home, I gave my little guy lots of hugs and kisses. He says "boo boo" and touches his lip.
He's healing nicely and I am not looking forward to having this happening again!! I'm going to make a bubble boy suit for them.
