Crew's turn in the hospital

Well the first day in Ohio we spent in the E.R. Crew was playing around down stairs with his cousins, doing who knows what, when we heard major screaming and he came running upstairs. He had a major gash in his leg and the skin was shoved up behind the wound. It was so disgusting; his fat layer was hanging out. Mom took us to the Quick Care closest to us but because we were out of town the lady there wasn't sure if they accepted our insurance and the wait looked long. We headed over to the E.R. and I'm glad we did. They were great there. We hardly waited at all and everyone was so nice. Crew got popsicles and a stuffed Stinger (the mascot for the Columbus Blue Jackets NHL team). However, only about half of his stitches made it a week. I just couldn't get him to take it easy. At least I've had a lot of practice with this sort of thing and knew just what to do: steri strips and super glue.
