Jacob's Encounter With a Golf Club

Jacob has had his first big injury in his 3 year old life. On Thursday, the 15th, him and Ben were shooting some golf balls around our property. It seems Jacob got too close to Ben from behind and Ben smashed him in the face with his golf club. It was obvious throughout the day that it was getting worse, so we packed everyone up and headed for the hospital. The doctor put Jacob to sleep and gave him 3 stitches on the outside and I'm not sure how many on the inside. I must tell you that Jacob is loving all this attention though. We had to go back to the hospital last night and he was singing, "Yippee! Yippee! I'm going to the doctor." and he loves taking all the medicine.

  1. Poor baby Jacob & what a brave boy he is & I bet Ben felt just terrible to hurt his brother like that. Happy to see Jacob is not fighting the Doctor & medicine. He might set a good example for his brother & sister, if they ever have to take medicine & go to the Doctor.
