translation-I was either playing on the computer or reading.
Suddenly My nephew calls out, "Sydney (my dog) bit off my ear!" (actually, they had been playing and she ran by as he was bending over to pet her and her tooth clipped his ear)...ha, that sounds like an alibi from Judge Judy. "No, Your Honor, My dog didn't bite him. His ear got in the way as she was running by..."
Being the concerned aunt that I am, I yelled back, "Well, pick it up and put it back on!".
I glance up from my book...er....I mean the dishes I was washing and saw he was holding the side of his head. hhmmmm.
I told him to go in the bathroom and I would bring him a cloth for it.
translation-Don't drip blood on my carpet.
I follow him to the bathroom and handed him a clean cloth....He said, "That's a SOCK" Yes, it was a sock, but it was a sock with a hole in it which changes it from a sock to a cloth......it was clean.
So I cleaned off the blood as well as I could and took a look.
"Hhhmmm" I said.
translation-EEKKKKK! Someone call 911!
Oh shoot. I'm 911.
Calmly I told him to keep some pressure on it.
translation-WOW! That's a LOT of blood!
I sat him in the recliner, tilted it back, made sure he was firmly holding the sock...er...cloth on it and took a second to decide what to do. It was one of those things that was right in the middle of whether or not to get stitches.
I called my neighbor, a nurse.....I didn't call her a nurse, she actually is a nurse. Anyway, so I called her and told her what had happened and asked if she would come take a look. I hadn't called my nephew's mom (ET) yet. I wanted to decide what I thought it needed first, then I would call her and see what she wanted to do.
translation- I REALLY dreaded calling and telling her.
My neighbor said she had just stepped out of the shower and to please give her 3 minutes to throw something on and she would be right over. I told her to take her time.
She and I both thought it probably needed stitches. She said they might use glue. Shoot, if I had known they sometimes used glue, I wouldn't have even bothered calling. I have some super glue in the drawer....ok, bad idea.
I called ET to tell her what happened. Don't you just love those conversations that start off with, "Don't worry. It isn't an emergency but...."
translation-Which ER should I meet you at?
Oh, and poor, sweet little Alberquando! His empathy almost put me over the edge. "Does this mean we aren't going to get to spend the night at their house?".
As it turned out, his Primary Care Doctor was able to handle it. They did use glue. They said it probably would have needed 2 stitches but the glue made a much cleaner scar. They did a great job too. I doubt anyone will even be able to see where it happened after it heals.
ANYWAY, just another typical day.
P.S. oh yeah, He never even shed a tear.

Chatty Kelly here. As you know, My ADHD Me's computer is down. So I thought we'd have some fun to keep this blog from getting stale until her computer is fixed (in about 2 weeks or so).
Here is the game. I am going to write a couple of lines of a story. The first commenter should add a few lines to continue it, then the next commenter add to the first commenters story line, and so on, and so on. Come back often to write more. Just don't write something so limited the story has no where to go. Leave an open ending for the next writer. When My ADHD Me comes back, she should have some real entertainment. So please join in the fun. Here is the story beginning, and yes it is plagiarism. But I thought it would be a fun start.
It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. It was the best of times because....

You Know what that means.
We're Gonna Have A Special Guest!!
I used to listen to my mom's old 45 of this song over and over and over.
I know they don't refer to teen idols this way any more, but the only word I can think of to describe Ricky Nelson....Dreamy!

You Know What That means.
We're Gonna Have A Special Guest!!
Chatty Kelly heard this on the radio the other day and asked me to play it for her. No problem as this is an awesome song. Spinning Wheel----Whirling Dervish------Of course I like it. The only problem is.....well, be sure to notice the guy at around 18 seconds into the clip. He's doing a good job, but face it, We Need More Cowbell!!!
Those trumpets are incredible too.
(there is a better version of the song but I looked for almost an hour...well spent time (note: NOT "good" spent time).....trying to find a video of it. All I could find was the long version without the video, so I went with this one anyway)
Have a great day!
