Baxter's Bike Accident!

Baxter was mountain bike riding with Bennett. They were riding down a hill and Baxter didn't make the turn and hit a log. He Supermaned over his handle bars. He actually had no injuries except for that perfectly placed stick that went up his nose.

We spent a couple of hours in the ER and had a CAT scan to find out that we needed to go to Burlington's ER which was 45 minutes away.

When the Dr. pulled the stick out both Brian and I were in shock by how big it was!
This was the stick that was stuck up Baxter's nose!
This is a fax of the CAT scan. You can see a darker line on the right side of his nose. That is the stick!
Wasn't sure if he fell off his bike or got beat up!
In our seminary class the kids are always talking about zombies. So we had to take a picture of Baxter zombie!

I am SO glad you included pictures. THANKS! Kjel told me about the accident and I spent all of yesterday covering my nose and twinging in pain. Wow, Baxter, always giving it 100 percent. Sorry, such a nasty accident. Just think of the cool story.

That seriously makes me cringe just thinking about it and then seeing the stick and the scan makes it worse!
I am so glad he is okay.

Oh yikes! How bizarre that a stick was right where it could go up his nose, but what a blessing that it wasn't any worse. Ouch!
