The Fact is (Psssh) it Happens

Darwin has a tendency to run a lot. And fast. Like, really fast. As in, how soon can we get the kid an olympic trainer? Is four old enough?

A couple of days ago he was racing a girl at the park. He was going super-fast and crashed and burned. On concrete.

Hello, head injury.


Blood was everywhere, pouring down the side of his face. I cleaned him up fairly well with the first-aid kit in the van, but hello big gash above the eyebrow. Someone had to go the hospital.

And, of course, someone needed stitches. And someone had a concussion. And someone is suppose to take it easy for at least four days because someone has a concussion worse than initially thought.

Because that's how someone rolls.

Poor guy. These photos are priceless. So relieved he is going to be ok, but WOW. He's probably hoping for some super-cool guy scar he can show off later in life.

And dude. Your dawg.

Gosh he's gotten so handsome and so big. I wonder if this will slow him down at all? Hope the weekend went smoothly. A puppy can heal the worst of scrapes.

Oh man, head wounds do bleed a lot! My son still bears a scar unser his left eye from a race down a large concrete ramp and a tumble into a half wall. He is 24 and I still feel guilty. Your poor little guy! Hope he feels better soon.
