Karissa's ER visit

I am not posting in sequence as I am sure you are aware, but just posting as I remember the events!  So of course as my luck would have it I had to visit the ER with Karissa and it was the night her daddy left for Texas.  It went a little something like this...
10 pm: Everyone is in bed...asleep!
220 am: Karissa rolls off my bed to the floor which she has done before, and Kylie comes in asking for something for her throat.  I pick Karissa up and put her in bed and go get Kylie her medicine.  I come back to lay down and Karissa is telling me her arm hurts, but she isn't too frantic about it.  I try to get her to go back to sleep because mommy has to be up in 2 hours for work. 

225 am: still upset that her arm hurts so I decide I better investigate.  I switch the light on and notice what looks like some blood on the shirt sleeve so I pull the sleeve back and to my horror I discover why my poor baby is telling me her arm hurts!
227 am: call my dad and tell him that he or my mom need to come over asap and stay with the other kids because I have to take Karissa to the ER for stitches.
235 am: leave for the ER
330 am: arrive at the ER, fill out her paperwork, get her into a room, put lidacaine on immediately to get her ready for some stitches.
500 am: still waiting due to some other emergency and I decide I better call in to work, no way I am gonna be able to function!
545 am: they start to close her up, she sat so nice, they said wished all their little patients were as easy going as her. 
615 am: we leave and head to walmart because she deserved a prize and she told me she wanted a dolly!  well she got 3 dollies that morning!
730 am: arrive back at home, totally exhausted.  and it was a light with no light shade that she managed to hit her arm on the sharp corner of something!
