ER moment

I love the special statements that come from some of the kids I see. Here's a recent good one.

A 4 year old little boy came in with a cut to his chin. As with all kids at this age he was terrified and he cried. He cried while we were setting up. He cried through the numbing. He cried  while I was washing it.

And then I put the first stitch in and told him one was done.
He immediately stopped crying, took a deep breath and sputtered, "I cried for nothing!"
He didn't cry anymore the rest of the time.... :)
