Getting this bugger to his 21st birthday is gonna be some kinda challenge...
Less than 2 weeks after the stitches were removed from the last fiasco, (a gash at 3am above the right eye)
Arleigh was headed right back to the ER again.
This time, he fell down a heating duct in our house.
This curious cat picked up the metal grate which covers the vent,
and fell head first down the hole.
It was not pretty, and this time, mommy didn't stop to take a photo, as he had clear signs of a concussion.
In fact, he was diagnosed with a concussion at the hospital. He had stitches added to the top of his forhead and steri strips placed on a smaller cut too. They also gave him a sedative to calm him, and aid in amnesia, so he wouldn't "remember the trauma."
The doc said inducing a bit of amnesia would help "so that next time he had to come to the ER for stitches, it won't be so scary".
Does anyone else see the irony in that?
Let's hope that he at least remembers not to do that again.
We're frequenting the ER waaaay too much!
