S if for Stratton S is for Stitches!

My friend Missy called last night and invited Ryanna & I to go with her & Carter to Cottonwood High School to see The Forgotten Carols by Michael McLean. They were going to go as a family but her daughter Sidney came home with a sick belly (throwing up).
Ryan texted me & told me he was taking the boys to the Rec Center. So I am sitting there enjoying the show when my phone vibrated & I didn't think much then it vibrated again that I had a text, and then it kept vibrating that someone was trying to get a hold of me. I thought maybe it was Justin (Missy's husband) because she left her phone in the car and Sidney sick at home. I finally went to the foyer, saw that it had been Ryan calling and called him. He told me that they were on their way to Heber hospital to get stitches. Stratton had fallen at the Rec center and cut his hand open on some sharp tile. As we were talking he said "Oh crap I'm getting pulled over - I'm in trouble and my cell phone is going to die." Ryan's mom & dad were on their way home from Gunnison and met Ryan at the hospital to take Brayden with them. Brayden didn't want to go because he was so worried about Stratton, but went anyways. So at intermission I called Ryan's dads cell phone & asked for an update. He text me back letting me know that Ryan didn't get a ticket for speeding, it was a 2" cut on his right hand, that they were keeping Brayden overnight, and that Ryan had his moms cellphone. It was hard to concentrate on the program, knowing what was happening and that I wasn't there but I knew Ryan had it under control. It was an awesome experience last night. Michael McLean is an amazing guy. I even ended up beating Ryan home. He said they put atleast 15 maybe 20 stitches in his hand. It was a rough night but we all survived! Thank goodness it was only stitches and nothing worse.

Happy Birthday Stratton!

Happy Birthday Stratton! My baby turned 3 today. He is such a good boy. He is my buddy. He is such a joy to have in our family. We love you Stratton! Last week I took him with me to help in Ryanna's class (all day) and he pulled the fire alarm and evacuated the whole school. I couldn't believe it, that's why I don't help at the school. I put in my day for the whole year. I'm done.
