I got a phone call at 2pm one afternoon that my youngest (2 at the time) had slammed her thumb in the daycare gate
They didn't know if it was ok, because it swelled up like a lemon! I drove from work to her school (30 miles, but in traffic, at least an hour) in about 10 minutes and took her to the ER. What an ordeal! She was fine....munchin crackers and sippin juice from the ER staff as we waited...danced for everyone, flirted with the doctors
I was a wreck and she acted like she was at a party!!
Once, in my class, a boy had his hand in the doorjam to hold the door open, and another kid (being a turd) slammed it and sliced off the top joint of the kids finger
HOLY CRAP! I don't know how I managed to walk the kid, finger wrapped in paper towels to the nurses office. But when the ambulance took him away, and they collected his finger bit from my room, my knees gave out and I was done for the day. EESH! Kids, man.
