ER Visit

While I was visiting Mau over the weekend, my husband had to make a visit to the local emergency room. He woke up with a stomach ache Friday and fainted on the way to the bathroom. He is not sure how long he was out when he woke up in a pool of blood. He cleaned everything up, was happy he fell on the hardwood floor and not the new carpet, and proceeded to drive himself to the ER. He received 12 stitches and had a cat scan, to which he protested, the doctor insisted to make sure he had not sustained a head injury. Was back home by midnight. Tomorrow he has an appointment to have the stitches removed even thou the ER doctor said five to seven days before removal. Our experience with Bone's many many many cuts to the face, it is important to have stitches on your face removed very soon to cut down on scaring. Even thou Bone was never able to do that since there were hockey games to play, he always had to wait until the following Monday after the weekend games. Since he doesn't have any hockey games to play we are hoping the doctor will go ahead and remove them tomorrow.

Your husband can "scare" with or without stitches.
