Saturday night, Kaia was riding her bike at the end of the driveway when she fell. The neighbor was over visiting with Dana, and he came into the house to tell me I had better get out there. I rushed out to see what the damage was, and saw blood. Lots and lots of it! Dana had given Kaia a clean shop rag and instructed her to hold it to her chin. I had her remove it so I could take a look, and we all agreed, she needed stitches.
It was a long process of cleaning the wound and stitching. There was a fair amount of asphalt in it. But in the end, Kaia did great. She has 2 interior stitches, and 7 exterior stitches. And for Kaia, best of all, she now has huge audiences to retell the story to! She loved telling everyone at church Sunday morning. And she was excited to show her class.
