Last night Gabe took a header into the hat and mitten box. Apparently that is what happens when you are running in the house. Which led to a trip to the ER because, of course, you can't split your head open in the middle of the day when you can go to the doctor or earlier in the evening when the urgent care center is open. You'd think a head wound on a child would be a reason for some urgency but apparently not. They spent about 5 hours there in total. Perhaps the problem was that Alan had managed to do a decent job patching things up before they left home so the wound was not gaping or bleeding heavily.
