I'm a bad parent

OK, so I am a bad parent. As you may know, my son Joey stepped on a huge piece of a broken glass, and sliced his foot open. The bleeding was really bad, and we had to call an ambulance because if I took any pressure off his foot, it started pouring blood again. We spent a long time in the ER at the Medical Center, and even after several hours of pressure on his wound, when they took the bandage off, it started bleeding again. They stitched it up and told him no weight bearing at all for 2 to 3 weeks. The doctor told us to leave the dressing on until today, and then change it, clean it and re-dress it.

Well, here is where the bad parenting part comes in. Today I was cleaning and re-dressing his foot, and the first thing I thought of was, "Man, I need to take some pictures for my blog". Horrible, I know...

But here are the pictures.



This is what it looked like after I took the bandage off.



After the cleaning



All nice, clean and dressed up.

Seriously, thank you for your prayers for him. They are much appreciated.

Later kids...

You are not a bad parent; a bad parents would have told his son to put a band-aid and get over it. You the man
