Angel's trip to the ER
There was a scissor incident. Finch accidentally cut Angel's ring finger on her right hand. Angel must've been reaching for the scissors when it happened. Neither of them should've had scissors in the first place! Anyway, a couple gals from church just happened to knock on the door right as I was about to load the kids in the car. They asked if there was anything they could do for me....so I invited them in. They watched the other kids while I took Angel to the ER. (One of their sons is Bear's age and they play together sometimes so it worked out great.)
Angel had to get 7 stitches. They strapped her down to a board, gave her 2 shots in her finger, and then sewed her up. I almost passed out.
Angel's doctor said that even though she bled a lot, the cut was shallow - didn't go deep towards the bone - so it didn't cut into any nerves or tendons. Her blood flow to the tip of her finger was good. We'll go back in 10 days to get the stitches out.
Seraph's doctors called while I was in the ER w/ Angel. They're going to do a CT scan of Seraph's heart to make sure she doesn't have any clots. They expect she'll be ready to move out of ICU to the floor either today or tomorrow.
