Boats are Dangerous

Thursday started out as a normal day. We packed the boat up to take the family boating. It was a beautiful day. The water was great and there was hardly any boats on the lake. We got in the warm water and swam around a bit and then David decided he wanted to knee board. He was doing great trying to learn a new trick and then he fell. I turned the boat around to pick him up and he was holding his head and bleeding. The knee board had hit him in the back of the head when he fell. He was dizzy and confused and I had a hard time getting him out of the lake. Once I got him on the boat I tried to asses the injury. He had a huge goose egg and there was a lot of blood. I could see a deep laceration and knew that was the end of our little trip. I grabbed the knee board and started heading back to the dock. David wanted to stay so Aleecia could ride the tube but Aleecia and I knew he needed medical attention. I didn't want David driving with the possibility of a concussion so for the first time I drove with the boat. Thankfully we have good friends in the medical field and Jaime stapled up his head. 17 staples! All is well now.
