For those five of you who read this blog on a regular basis, you know that our little Mauryn is tiny in stature but strong in her will. Mauryn is a bitty ball of fire that is constantly in motion. One of her favorite things to do is climb - table top, counter top, etc...
Last week one evening, she had climbed on the counter and was scurrying to get off the counter top (she heard me coming back into the kitchen) when she toppled over with the chair she had used to climb onto the counter. I picked her up and checked for blood right away. I could tell she had bit her tongue but couldn't see any other signs of injury. She was very upset and it took a while to get her calmed down.
Once she was calm, I noticed her shirt had quite a bit of blood on it. I knew she bit her tongue but it hadn't bled very much. I had her lift her head and noticed a cut on her chin. I placed her in my arms and carried her upstairs to our room for Lance to look at her.
When I reached our room, I was pretty insistent that we get Mauryn to quick care. I knew she either needed stitches or skin glue for her cut. Lance took a look at her chin and agreed she probably would need skin glue.
Instead of taking her into quick care, our resident vet went to his truck got out some skin glue and fixed our baby girl up. Mauryn was a wonderful patient. She laid completely still while Lance applied the skin glue.
Mauryn proudly displays her "owie" on her chin that her daddy "fix up".
Sometimes, it is handy to have a doctor in the house, (even if he is a vet) when it saves you a hundred dollar trip to quick care.
