Bumps and DermaBond

We had our first trip to the Urgent Care for stitches today.  Grayson tagged the radiator with his head just right and managed to slice his fore head open while not really hurting himself otherwise.

We unsuccessfully tried to stick a band-aide on it for the car ride, which he would have nothing to do with - so, by the time we got to the nearest Urgent Care, which is 20 minutes away, he had bled all down his face.

Then to make matters even worse, the UC people refused to see him!  They made Doug put him back in the car and drive him to the ER...for stitches, or derma-bond, as the case was.  Since the UC and the ER are all the same company -- and the ER couldn't understand why the UC wouldn't take care of him and they did nothing else for him, I think we have decided that we are only going to pay the UC fee.  The whole thing was ridiculous.

After getting his head glued it was off to Ashburn for his eye exam.  Poor little guy, he can't catch a break.

UPDATE: It took him all of 4 days to peel off the derma-bond.  The gash looks to be healed shut, so we are hoping that he won't hit it again and reopen it before it finishes healing.  Geez.

Aw so sad, but dermabond is amazing! So much better than typical stitches because you don't have to have it removed it just dissolves. I think it is a lifesaver!
