A Good Day For Stitches

Kyra busted her chin open today pushing her friend on a tricycle. Blood everywhere, screaming and crying, oh, God, what the hell is going on, kind of busting a chin open.

I knew it was bad. I wasn't sure how bad but more then a Band-Aid kind of bad.

The ER doctor described her chin gash as resembling hamburger. Jeremy described her chin as being put through a cheese grater. Either way, it was beyond stitches.

Kyra managed to mangle her chin enough so that there was no way to attach one side of clean skin to the other. Instead she's been Steri Stripped together, folding the hamburger mush on top of itself to pull the two sides back together.

One ER trip later, Kyra has a wonderful, cool new fun thing to run around and show her friends. I, well, I have had enough with the doctor visits this week.

With such an adventurous week so far, I can't help but wonder what tomorrow will bring.


  1. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. You're going to have a wonderful, relaxing day.

    God bless.


  2. Oh no! Poor Kyra! I hope it heals well. How about that rash? Did I miss the update on that?

  3. man, i don't want to be near you! Glad you don't live here!

  4. poor baby!! Hope she feels better soon!
