First trip to the ER

Considering Danny is 7, pretty amazing that this was his first trip to the ER!!
He stepped on a fish hook at camp today. His doctor is out of the country on a mission trip so they told us to go to the ER.

Danny was absolutely amazing! He did not cry at the hospital at all. We did not need to hold him down even when they shot numbing medicine in his foot! The hook was pretty big and the Dr had to use the big cutters. Luckily Danny was on his stomach and could not see what was going on. :)
I was very impressed with the ER, we were in and out in about an hour! and that included an xray.

Danny became a pirate today!!

He is wearing an eye patch for lazy eye 6 hours per day. Even though he is right side dominant he is left eye dominant. Hopefully by patching his strong left eye it will force his weak right eye to strengthen. There is another little girl in camp that is doing the same thing and she is doing so much better. Danny has been having neurological tutoring for the last couple of weeks and his tutor has noticed a huge change in his abilities already! Hopefully patching his eye will help lots too!!

He has been milking his boo boo since he got home, I am sure they will all hear about it at camp tomorrow :)
