He pediatrician said he needed a plastic surgeon.

It went all the way to the bone.



$3000 procedure.


He took it like a champ. My wife not so much.

Damn it man, poor lil guy.

Aw, poor little dude. That had to have hurt like a SOB!
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 12:21:51 AM EST
$3k? That's a top tier AR purchase. That's how I know I'm too young for kids.

The look on his face tells it all. Poor feller. I hope he heals well.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 12:22:16 AM EST
Damn. I hope he feels better soon.

Not good at first. Day care told me over the phone that he "split his head open". When I got there I was like "that isn't that bad".

It is deep though. Hardest part was not going back to surgery with him.

damn he must have been running full speed ahead!

Flat, non sharp one. It holds up an awning.

Tell him chicks dig scars. Then tell him he will understand when he is older.

Tough kid. He looks mad at you for taking his picture.
Hope it all goes well.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 12:24:44 AM EST
I have the same scar. Baseball bat at age nine or so. Little brother didn't get a good one from when he ran full tilt into a pole in the dark at age 7 or so.




He'll be fine, but he probably didn't learn anything, if I'm any example.

Link Posted: 1/17/2015 12:24:45 AM EST
Hope your little guy heals up quickly! He looks about the same age as mine.

Can't help but think some chicks are going to dig that scar years from now!
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 12:24:53 AM EST
OMG Poor little man.

My boy did something similar, but hit his eyebrow area, split just under his brow. No stitches, but still has a small scar.

I know the feeling dad, hang in there. He will heal well.

I keep telling my wife that. She doesn't understand.

LOL @ plastic surgery.

I did the same thing when I was a couple years older than he is. My old man told the doc to stitch me up and send me home. The doc then also mentioned something about surgery my old man told him to take a long walk. 20 years later you can barely tell I ever had a cut there.

some super glue and you'd have saved $2999.

ETA: good to know that he's fine.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 12:28:02 AM EST
Poor lil dude. As stated above, the chicks will dig it when he's older.

All the best for a speedy healing.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 12:29:07 AM EST
His new nickname is Ironhead. .



Damn that had to hurt! Glad he's going to be okay.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 12:29:41 AM EST
I'm not a parent, so not sure how daycare works. Wouldn't they have insurance for accidents like that happening on their watch? Might check it out, like the young'un said above, that's a top tier AR purchase... Hope the kiddo feels better!

I got hit in the head by a bumerang at age 5. Went all the way to the skull. A few stitches later, and I still have the scar.

I'd just have him stitched up, then go buy a FBR.

Glad he's ok. Kids get hurt, but they tend to be way tougher than adults, and heal a lot quicker.

Rub dirt in it, take him shooting. Problem staying solved.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 12:33:25 AM EST
He'll be fine. Kids are like rubber.

Little scarring, but that didn't hold Harrison Ford back.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 12:37:12 AM EST
Damn, poor fella


OP if it cheers you up, before I saw the pic I was going
to respond with "My belly usually hits first "


Link Posted: 1/17/2015 12:47:28 AM EST
Glad the kid is OK and we can do our usual "give dad a hard time " thing here

One would think that after paying $3K and getting a plastic surgeon involved by the time the kid is old enough to give a shit about girls there won't be any scar to let them dig

Now that you mention it, I've never heard a chick say that.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 12:51:24 AM EST
poor baby! glad hes going to be ok. make sure he gets some ice cream
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 1:02:32 AM EST
Looks like he is taking it well. He's going to have a cool scar and a lesson. I have to remind my 3 year old of that. Hope he feels better soon. Kids are pretty resilient. Stuff like this is harder on us parents.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 1:04:49 AM EST
So, the "rub some dirt in it" didn't work I guess...
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 1:07:07 AM EST
I hope he's doing OK.

Not gonna lie, looking at that just made my teeth hurt. I hate seeing injured kids.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 1:09:33 AM EST
Poor little guy!!! My kid did the same thing but broke her nose. It required reconstructive surgery. Prayers for your little man!!!
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 1:14:41 AM EST
$3k, you got off easy. I've had kidney stones that cost that much for pain killers and a ct scan. Tough break though, that had to hurt. Hope he heals up quick.

Was going to post this myself. He seems like a tough kid. He'll have a story to tell for years.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 1:15:38 AM EST
sorry about your son but i wouldnt have called plastics to sew that. a little LET and any one of my NPs could knock it out in about 4 minutes. glad hes fixed up though.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 1:15:41 AM EST
Plastic surgeon? Whip stitch that thing with twine.

You just robbed your boy of his first manly scar.

It's your fault now if he grows up ..... that way.


Link Posted: 1/17/2015 1:22:52 AM EST
Girls think scars are sexy, in several years he would thank you.

regular stitches, or glue would be fine
