1st ER trip (on the east coast)

Yes I got the joy of taking Bryce in for his 1st trip to the Exeter ER. I believe it was Thursday last week. Matt and Amanda were over when I realized that Bryce had dried blood in his ears. Matt and Amanda watched as I cleaned his ears trying to see if I could tell where the blood was coming from. Amanda and I both agreed that that wasn't normal. I soon learned why you should not be lazy in switching over medical insurance. Afraid to take Bryce in before the paperwork was faxed off, I walked in circles until I found it. By that time Amanda had fallen asleep and Matt and I decided to take the kids to the park. When Ben got home he went and faxed the paperwork for me. It started pouring down rain on us at the park so we loaded up. Matt headed home with the boys and I took Sky and Bryce to the E.R. After about 2 1/2 hours of waiting we finally saw a doctor. And much to my surprise nothing was wrong. Apparently dried blood in your ears is perfectly normal. Ben and I are not totally satisfied with this diagnosis so we plan on following up with his doctor later this week. Here are a few pictures of the kids while we were waiting.

How is the little guy?

Oh and that was the BEST nap EVAH! And surprisingly the only one I took for our whole vacation! Is there anything better than a four hour lazy rainy day nap? I think not!
