Playing with scissors...


Last week, I came home from Brandon's pediatric appointment to learn that Brice had cut his hand...with scissors. Why he was allowed to play with scissors was an issue we explored later, but for the immediate time being, it was obvious that it would need a couple stitches. I packed him up and ran him up to Urgicare where the doctor there confirmed he'd need....2 stitches. OR...we could use the Dermabond which is basically skin glue. It goes on in a minute and a half and no shots/no pain. Pretty easy choice. The sore spot came at the end of the visit when the nurse told us to keep the hand STILL for a day. Lots of books and movies she told us. Um, does she KNOW Brice?
True to Brice's personality...he had ripped off the Dermabond within 16 hours of its application (and that includes mostly sleeping time). They told us not to worry. A kid like him would probably bust stitches too, and that we should just keep Neosporine on it. We did, but he's a boy and had that hand constantly in the dirt, mud and filth. It's a miracle that infection has not set in. The above photo of him was taken at Emanuel's track meet last week.

I have a feeling with everything he's exposing himself to all the time he's going to be one of the healthiest ones in the family!
Know that I'm here praying!
Psalm 130:1-4: Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD. Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications. If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.

The passage today is a little different. But the way I look at it, life itself is a battle and the Lord doesn't change. He was with the Israelites as they headed into the Promised Land, and He's with you, helping you and giving you strength to face whatever lies ahead. Always here praying!
Deuteronomy 20:1-4: When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and seest horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the LORD thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And it shall be, when ye are come nigh unto the battle, that the priest shall approach and speak unto the people, And shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel, ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them; For the LORD your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.
