Running with...ruler?

It was a tough weekend at the Duggar house.  Hyrum was doing a "trick" with a ruler in his mouth and fell.  You guessed it, he tore a big gash in the back of his mouth, just above his bottom molars.  After being assured that we had a guardian angel who made sure he didn't die, the pediatrician sent us to a Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor.  The end result is that Hyrum had his second round of general anesthisia.  Here he is before the procedure. 

 The doctor said he did a great job, and only needed five stitches.  Lucky for us, they will dissolve, so we don't have to do another round.  Which is good, because Hyrum didn't like waking up after the stitches.  But, as you can see from below, he is fine now.  In fact, I haven't heard him complain about pain yet!

He looks happy despite the accident. That's good! I'm glad that he seems to be doing okay now!
