And we still have the other half of the month to go!

I am going to go into a little detail about Megan and her staples...
Saturday morning we woke up, had breakfast, and proceeded to do our Saturday chores around the house. We were nearly done when Megan came to me complaining that she could not shut her drawers because they had too many clothes in them. I told her to go take all the winter clothes out so we could put them away for summer. A few minutes passed when we heard a crash and Courtney screaming. Megan had pulled too hard on one of her drawers and the whole dresser came crashing down on top of her...along with the 10 gallon glass fish tank that was on top. Scott rushed in to help her and told me to get some towels to sop up the water. Scott carried Megan into the bathroom covered in blood. I stuck her in the shower so we could find out where it was coming from. We soon found the huge gash on the back of her head and a cut on the side of her neck. I threw a nightgown on her and rushed her to the hospital. The doctor looked at her and decided that she needed staples. While they went out to get the "stapler" ready megan wispered to me through her tears "mom, you need to pray with me that heavenly father will be here". So we did. They stapled Megs head 8 times and superglued the cut on her neck back together. She was a trooper. She had a couple of nicks from the tank shattering on her. The nurse came to discharge her, and gave me all the papers for the after care and this is what it said to do...
1. Home to rest
2. Staples out in 7-10 days in clinic
3. Tylenol or Motrin as needed for pain
4. Take Megan shopping for new fish
After this experience she says that she dosen't want to EVER have a fish tank again. I agree with her. She also said she wanted to eat the sucker fish for dinner.

I was so gratful for my heavenly father for looking over us. And for a nurse with an awesome sense of humor.
