About two weeks ago, I let the little girls go out to play on the tarp – that’s a homemade slip’n’slide made from a big tarp and a water hose. A month or so ago, the kids found a golf club behind our church. Leslie had gotten that golf club to play with on the tarp. They had made a nice, big puddle with the hose. Leslie thought, “I bet if I swing this club down in that water it will make a big splash!” So, that’s what she did. She swung back and, whoops! Laci was there! She hit her on the outside of her right eye! It left a very big gash and she was bleeding profusely. I don’t handle blood well, especially my children’s! I called Terry and he was able to come home to see what needed to be done. Sure enough, he thought it needed stitches. I took her to the ER in town, and they felt it should be glued rather than stitched. I said okay to their plan, but I regret it now. It didn’t stay closed very well with the glue and now there is going to be a bigger scar visible than if it had been stitched. It was right in line with her eyebrow, so I’m hoping the hair will grow in and cover it.
Leslie felt terrible about this whole thing! She and Laci love each other so much, she sat and cried for a while, feeling terrible about it. I was happy that it wasn’t worse than it ended up being. The Lord truly watches over my family and I’m so very grateful!
