I sent my boy to school last week and by lunch I was meeting him and his father in the emergency room. He fell at recess and split his lip open. It required five stitches and lots of TLC.
As far as children emergency room visits go - and we don't have a lot to go by considering this was our first - it went pretty easy. It was a weekday afternoon so there was no wait. The nurse and surgeon were experienced and kind. Narls didn't hit any teeth or knock them out of alignment and he handled the stitches like a boss despite not being completely numb.
Four days later, the stitches came out and he was as good as new.
