When I looked at the back of his head blood was pouring down his neck. I wrapped him up in a towel and we made our way to the car and I drove fast, safely but fast, to the ER. (I didn't even lock the puppy up in her kennel?!) I gotta say he was great in the car. He mostly said that he was scared because he didn't know what was going to happen but he was OK. By the time we got to the ER he was cold because well he was soaking wet.
Everyone took great care of him and he was a rock star getting the area cleaned, numbed, and then two staples put in. One of the nurses even told him that he was doing better than most adults do when they come in with the same injury. I think what help keep us calm was the fact that Auntie (my Sister) had a similar injury when she was a kid. We goofed about how they would have the same type of scar and it would look like an eye in the back of his head, just like Auntie. He kinda liked that.
In the picture you can see all of the blood on his swim shirt, he'll get a new one, his bandaged head when they were numbing it, the staple gun, and the finished work. He was excited to tell everyone at school what happened. However he did say he was going to take a break from swimming for a little bit. It was definitely a more exciting Cinco De Mayo than we had planned but we were so proud of how he handled the situation.

We spent Valentine's Day at the Desert Botanical Gardens. The weather was perfect and is was a lot of fun to just have some relaxing family time. We also had out-of-town guests who were able to escape the snow enjoy the desert at its finest.
We had extreme close ups with humming birds, a roadrunner, ground squirrels, and quail.
We are members of the botanical gardens now and I think the 8 years old would live there if he could. The draw back for him if being allergic to mesquite trees. If you every come to Phoenix the DBG is definitely a place to visit.
