Sunday night we were invited to Kaleo Nashville.
A small church that is just starting out. We enjoyed worship,a great message, meeting many new friends and enjoyed "deer burgers!"
This here is Ben. He led worship Sunday night and also......
hunted the deer we were eating. He cooked us all up some deer burgers. I myself didn't try any (don't tell Ben) but my husband and kids did. They liked it!
Ben told me he was driving the other day and saw the car in front of him hit a squirrel. He stopped and saw that it had just been hit in the head the body was still good. He didn't want to waste any good meat. So he picked it up, skinned it and called his wife at work and said, "Hon, when ya' gonna be home, Supper's cookin'."
Yep, we're in the South ha!
I should of told these two that the crackers on the table were for "Communion" later that evening.... not chip and dip.
We enjoyed a great night of fellowship.....
You know what's funny is before we left, everyone was worried about sleeping arrangements, how we would afford to do this etc etc...I myself was more worried about being involved with church and the fellowship we would be missing back home.
But we have had so many neat opportunities of meeting other believers all around the US.
Unfortunately we had to leave early..... The kids were running around after service while their parents were
not watching them busy. Just as I turned to check on them I saw Finley trip into a bench......and the cry and scream that followed, I knew it was bad......
Sure enough blood! Everywhere! Right above her eye. My first thought, "Oh, no her face!" Then I checked her deep dark brown eyes to make sure they weren't dilating...(she hit hard)
One of our new friends offered to show us the way to the nearest hospital. It was deep and I knew I couldn't just glue it. So trip #4(on this trip) to the ER was underway......
I was in tears, I don't know how much more of this I can take. Ugh! It wears on a mom when your babies are always getting hurt.
We arrived at the Vanderbilt Children's Hospital.
Austin has taken over my camera and most of the pictures on this blog are him now. He enjoys documenting and photography. So....I let him.
I'll spare you the really bloody pictures.....(Finley playing with Daddy's phone to keep her hands from trying to pull off the bandage.)
We found out that they had to put Finley under anaesthesia to sew up her cut. It was too deep and they needed to do layers of stitches. But, because she just had "deer burgers" we had to wait 4 hours..........
Needless to say the kids were borrrrrrrrrred!
After about 2 hours of waiting, Daddy took the kids back "home" while I stayed with Finley. She was very cooperative with the nurses and doctors. She was very polite as well. She said, "tant you" (thank you) after the nurse took her blood pressure. But not after the IV, which I don't blame her:(
The "surgery" itself took 20 min then they came and got me......
she was hilarious!!!!!
and so drunk.......
she kept saying, "tant you" (thank you) over and over! LOL
She couldn't sit up or even look me in the eye.
I help her and sang and soon she came out of it. We called Daddy to come get us and we were on our way home.
We are praying it doesn't scar too much.
The doctors did a great job. It's in her eyebrow, so that should help cover it. As long as we make sure she doesn't get her eyebrows waxed in KY like her redneck mama did ha!
We'll keep her out of the sun and she should be just fine...
She's still so pretty!
