Finally!

September 24, 2008

Ten days ago, on a lovely afternoon, little boy had an accident at home. He was playing with big bro, running around the house when he slipped and hit his head by the edge of the door jamb. I knew from his cry it is something else, when I saw blood gushing down his eye and cheek, I cried too…My son was wiping away the blood with his hand and said, ‘Mommy, blut!’ (blood). I was so confused and scared like I have never been in my life.

I called hubby instead of the ambulance…he in a calm voice told me to call them, I had to ask my daughter what the number is and she promptly replied, “144 Mommy!”

I called the ambulance service and was I thankful they came less than 10 minutes later with a really big first-aid kit bag! They checked on baby boy’s head and gauzed it. We were then escorted to the van which took us to the nearest hospital, the same one where I gave birth to the little boy.

I thank the attendants for being really nice and accomodating, they make the patients and companions at ease well. They even let my older son alarm the siren (daughter was left with the neighbor’s care).

We arrived at the hospital’s emergency room about 30 minutes later.

Little boy was examined, a few of his hair shaved, I saw that his wound was about an inch…the nurse cleaned it and said it will not be stitched since it isnt too deep, I let out a sigh of relief. The nurse took out a glue and put it on baby boy’s head and held it for a few seconds so the skin sticks together and then placed plasters on it and gauze. (Above photo is when we left the hospital). We went to the x-ray room and I was glad everything inside his head is good! =D

 

For 10 days, little boy’s head would be like this, without his hair getting cleaned, glad that his hair is like mine (shiny and silky, pwede sa commercial! lol)
We were always together the past 10 days, he doesn’t need to attend the kindergarten because of his condition so we were out everytime, eating, playing, sightseeing and all! I can say that he did enjoy it a lot! Agree?
Today, his gauze was finally removed. There is still a little wound but the doctor said it will soon heal…

  1. OMG! I would’ve gotten a heart attack if this happened to my little girl too – baka sabay na kami ma-ER!!!

    Thank God your little boy is now okay. God is good!

  2. im glad he is ok now… im sure it was one helluva a scare for you…
    well, at least he is ok now. i guess kids will always be kids. 😉

  3. oy, katakot naman ng experience ng anak mo. nauntog din ako dati sa ulo sa may pintuan din. Sus! tama ang sabi nila. pag head wound, bleeder talaga. buti nalang, ok na ang anak mo. sana, hindi na maulit.

  4. I’m glad to know that your son is recovering quickly. It must have been really a shock for you and everyone else when that happened. Your daughter also has good presence of mind.

    Buti na lang at efficient ang emergency abulance services ninyo diyan.

  5. am glad that he’s okay. i can only imagine how scared and confused you were! i wouldn’t know what to do if i were in your shoes either.

  6. M, He’s 2 1/2 but malaking bulas than my other 2.

    Pinky, un nga, ganun ang feeling para na kong hihimatayin…

    Doc, part nga yata ng paglaki ang sugat pero katakot pa din sa ulo na sugat =(.

    marites, oo nga yun din sabi nila madugo pag sa ulo…andami talaga nun nabasa un damit nya ng dugo…

    tita thess, kaway back hehe.

    Leap, yeah good my daughter knows it by memory, I really forgot na…

    Dyes, literally umiikot ang isip ko both sa pagkalito at takot…

    Thanks everyone, I posted a video of him, for you all!

  7. oh my! reading your entry, even i felt the tension, fear and anxiety you must have felt when this happened. imagine having to call an ambulance!

    i’m glad your little boy is ok now. thank God!
