ER copay: $75...prescription copay: $5...refreshments from hospital gift shop: $3.35, surviving Adam's first trip to the Emergency Room: priceless

Adam got up so early this morning that he was really tired by the time our worship service started. He had a hard time behaving himself, and we surely won the "most disruptive" award in church today. I was determined to make it a great day anyway, so even though it was fairly warm out, as soon as he woke up from his nap, I took Adam and Gretchen (our dog) outside to play catch. Not 5 minutes after we got outside. I tossed a tennis ball to Adam. Gretchen dove after it, and tore into Adam's cheek as she snatched the ball out of the air.

He didn't get stitches. A dog bite that gets closed is sure to become infected. He is on antibiotic to prevent infection, and thankfully they are both up to date on their shots. Hopefully it won't scar too badly.

He was a brave, brave boy and stole everyone's hearts at the hospital. A trip to Wendy's for a chicken nugget kid's meal was a great way for him to end his exciting day.

P.S. Levi was full of smiles today!
