I knew it was only a matter of time before I would be carting Bear off to the hospital - this little creature has always been pushing the limits. He is fearless and always moving. I'm actually surprised he wasn't doing anything silly when this happened - it was an innocent trip and fall. I was sitting right next to him and saw exactly what happened but was too slow to catch him.
1 cannula, 3 stitches and 2.5 hours of entertainment from my handbag and he was all mended.
It's a reminder of how quickly accidents can happen and how fragile little children are. Prevention is definitely better than cure and supervision is essential but not enough. Check out Farmsafe and Kidsafe for great resources on prevention.
Sadly no swimming for the next week :(
