W and D At It Again!

NoR's last comment in my post was "Bah Humbug..." my sentiments exactly. Christmas is Tuesday, and on top of having to buy a new car, I am going to have a big fat doctor bill to pay! Let me elaborate...

I am getting out of the shower last Friday, and I hear a God awful scream coming from W's room. I scurry in (half naked of course), to see blood erupting profusely from W's head! You see the boys decided to fight over a Pokemon card album. W punched D, so D decided to hurl a Nerf Blaster (which is almost as big as he is by the way) at W's noggin. After sending W to the restroom (hey, I have cream colored carpet!) and wailing D's ass (if you are an employee of Child Protective Services, please ignore the last comment), I made haste to see how bad it was. Blood always flows from the head in abundance it couldn't be that bad right? WRONG!

When we got to Immediate Care and got him cleaned up, there was a HUGE hole in his head! They used a 2 1/2 inch needle to numb him for stitches...he was screaming, I was hysterical, and crying (I excused myself for a moment...especially since I'd just asked him to be brave), and D was in utter fear of what might happen to him as there would surely be a consequence.

I made him watch every moment of the shots, the 5 stitches...the whole 9 yards. I'm sure he's traumatized, but hey...he has to realize that there are consequences for such bad choices in life.

So there you have it! I was going to get into the story about D asking me what a "virgin" is this weekend, but this is getting too damned long...That'll be in my next post.

In comments...who's gonna start the pool betting on what my next tragedy will be?

I was channelling you.

And my, that's a good wound! Wow, and I"m sure there was tons of blood.

I'm crossing my fingers that nothing else will happen.

Tera said...

NoR~Somehow "good wound" seems like an oxymoron to me.

My fingers are crossed as well! :-D

Speaking of nostalgia... This post happened to me, more or less (probably less, since in my case it was self-inflicted) when I was seven. I still have the nice nasty scar on my head.

It never got worse than that. So hopefully it won't get any worse for you.

Tera said...

Kofi~That makes me feel hopeful that it won't.

My my, what battle wounds we must ALL have!

Nance said...

Oh, hell. That's nothing. They're boys. LOL. I sent my sister to the emergency room twice for stitches.

But I never had to watch. I think you're mean. ;-)

heather said...

look on the bright side tera, at least d didn't announce that he's no longer a virgin! :-)

EsLocura said...

On sweet tera, that's it for the year, now relax, I can't wait for the virgin story. I got stiches this week also, on the top of my foot. wanna compare scares?

NoRegrets said...

Tera, I think for boys it's always a bragging thing once they are over the pain.

Tera said...

Nance~Tough! ;-)

Heather~My friend, you make an excellent point!

Es~Ouch! Let me make sure I'm reading that correctly, scars or scares...because if it's the latter, I'm sure mine was worse!

NoR~The stitches aren't even out yet, and he thinks it's by far the coolest thing that has ever happened to him...even cooler when he broke his arm at the elbow!

Susan said...

He could have told you "mom, I sure do love the virgins"..


I think the tragedies are done. I see sunshine in your future..

Tera said...

Susan~You and Heather are making me feel more and more relieved!

I certainly hope so...I truly do!

Anali said...

OMG! That's horrible. As bad as it is, it will probably make for a funny story starting about twenty years from now. Then W & D will tell it over and over for years to come. Remember that Christmas when you put a hole in my head!!

I do still hope that things calm down and start getting far more merry!

Tera said...

Anali~Thanks for the well wishes...I hope things get better! :-)

Cyber D said...

That well and truly sucks. I was getting ready to prepare my shitty Christmas story... but I'll defer. You win... hands down!

NoRegrets said...

It's a new year... don't you have a resolutino to leave the icky recent past behind and come out and have fun in the blog world?

Tera said...

Cyber D~LOL!

NoR~I think I just might...as I find the time :)
