They called the medics and she ended up at Harborview Medical Center (one of the best trauma centers in the country). Chris met them at the hospital. He really does handle this type of thing better. Needless to say even though I did not go along, I did not sleep a wink and I think we called each other 4 times before they came home at 7:30. It took the surgeons 2 hours to stich her up. They did invisible stitches under the surface and then some fancy new stitches on top and they actually had to 'trim' away jagged skin to close up the top. Today, 6/28,
she had the stitches taken out but it still looks none too pretty. This graduation day memory, along with scar, is never going to fade. It also is a Father's Day memory that will stay with Chris forever.
Anna Rae truly felt like the guest of honor and I would say that it was perfect from beginning to end but then we got that 3:30 am phone call on Sunday!
but that probably would've been tacky since we were there to honor the graduates. and aren't these 2 lovely? I think Anna Rae chose a beautiful dress. Unfortunately the underarm seams in the gossamer fabric didn't even hold out the morning.She was fine as long as she kept her arms down, but that is not too practical. So today she took the dress back to Anthroploogie and they were very apologetic and gave her her money back...which really didn't disappoint her too much since it was a big chunk of change!
