The Crash Heard 'Round the World

Today started off with a bang. Raegan and I were making last minute preparations for our highly anticipated day at Disneyland when we heard "the crash." Mallaney tripped on the rug and went crashing down into the corner of the coffee table, unfortunately breaking the fall with her eye. We quickly hustled her over to the local doctor's office. When they saw the gash and the placement of it, they recommended a plastic surgeon stitch it up to reduce scarring. So now Mallaney and Maddie Rae share another thing in common: the same plastic surgeon. We hopped on the ferry over to Central and went straight to Dr. Lam's office. He wanted to admit her to the hospital and put her under general anesthetic because the wound was on her eye and he was afraid that she would not lie still enough for him to sew it up without her losing an eye. We shared his concern, however, we begged him to please try to do it in the office. Thus began the major trauma which at this point we care to not remember. The good news was that he was able to do it, and when we were all done, we headed over to Disneyland where her tears were dried quickly as she got to see Mickey and Minnie. She even got a Minnie Mouse doll in a Chinese New Year outfit for being so brave. So, all is well, and she is sleeping peacefully now. We are soon following because with all this trauma and fun, we are exhausted!
