Abby and Matt spent the night at The Ridge last night. Rick and I were supposed to pick up them up around 12:30. No problem; we were on our way out the door. Then the phone rang. My parents were taking Matt to the ER in Geneva. Matt had an accident on his bike and split his chin open. Rick and I were still at home, about 20 minutes from our boy. I felt like we were never going to arrive! Of course, we did get there; and Matt was being so brave.
Matt left his afternoon in the ER with 7 stitches, several stickers, a stuffed rino, and a dollar bill the doctor "found" behind Matt's ear. The staff of the hospital was awesome! Everyone was friendly and did an excellent job of keeping Matt and our family calm. The hardest part was actually having to wait for the numbing medication to take effect so the doctor could put the stitches in.
We ended our eventful afternoon with a trip to Baskin Robbins. Matt lost a tooth last night and we have a family tradition. When someone loses a tooth, we either get a milkshake or Baskin Robbins. Since we were in Geneva anyway, Baskin Robbins was the choice. Matt got a Reese's peanut butter cup cone, and life after stitches commenced.
