Do Hospitals Give "Buy 3 Get 1 Free Discounts"?...

Michael reopened the cut on his knee this morning so he and Daddy made another trip to the local Emergency Room. The doctor didn't stitch it up or put more Dermabond on the wound since it had already started to heal. He did put a bandage on it though and then wrapped it in both gauze and an ace bandage. Now Michael has no choice but to keep his leg straight all the time. But, hopefully that will keep the cut from opening again and give it a chance to heal. Uncle Jeff told Michael tonight that he looks like a pirate with a peg leg! Let's hope that is the end of our excitement for a while. After all, 4 ER visits in 4 months - can a visit from Child Protective Services be far behind? Please keep Michael in your thoughts and prayers, JoAnne

You would think by now you would qualify for some form of "quantity discount" for all your visits! Poor Michael must be miserable with the knee. Maybe a eye patch or pirate will cheer him up!
