We had another fine visit to Aultman tonight. We really should move closer to that place. Carleigh was on a chair getting some M&M’s and fell off and hit the back of her head on a window sill. She had a nice 1.5″ gash on the back of here head. Keith called me at work and wanted me to come look at it. I’m usually pretty doubtful when it comes to needing stitches, but once I looked at it, I was pretty sure she would need them. We called April at work and we both took her up to the ER. The beginning of the 7″ of snow we are supposed to get tonight and tomorrow had already hit so driving up there was interesting.
We got right in and they put some numbing medicine on the wound so they could put staples in. We had to wait 1/2 an hour for it to work, then she got 5 staples. Luckily they didn’t have to shave her head or anything like that. When we left the roads were way worse. We did 35 on route 30 all the way home. On 93, coming up over popcorn hill, I down shifted so I would have to use my breaks, and it ended up making me slide. We thought for sure we were going in the ditch, because that’s certainly where the van was headed. At about the last minute, I turned the wheel to the left and tapped the gas to pull the nose of the van back on the road and fortunately it worked.
When we got to the bottom of the hill my head was pounding and my neck was all tense and closed up from the adrenaline.
Definitely an interesting night.
