he was pretty calm for a kid who just had a pretty traumatic experience. we walked over to the ER room and settled in for what turned out to be a four hour adventure. people were nice and it wasn't that busy. the surgeon gave my son his ipad and that distracted him nicely. the wound had stopped bleeding, so irrigation and prep was easy. he had a cat scan, and of course he liked it. he was pretty much enjoying this whole thing way too much.
the surgeon came back and did great work. and of course the dr. was a biker. he and i talked about bikes and trails while he sewed. kinda funny how that happened, a bike rider working on my son's head. jakob kinda liked it too i think. he mentioned while we were waiting for discharge papers how maybe we could get the same room 'the next time we come'. He thought that maybe one accident a season would be nice, winter spring, summer and fall are seasons. when he looked at the stitches in a mirror, of course he said "awesome". my trips to the emergency room with this boy have just begin. i better keep my phone charged and in my pocket at all times. i am the emergency contact and this is not the first emergency call....
