Yup we are at the ER with dd because she has splinters. She was climbing a palm tree at her grandparents last night and slid down the tree. We took her to urgent care this morning thinking they could take care of it. Nope they sent us to childrens ER for sedation. She has 30+ splinters that are all deep. I felt silly even going to urgent care ... who knew splinters could be ER worthy?!?!

If you dont get them taken care of they can move deeper into the skin and get infected.

damn! No bueno!

My Son had to go to urgent care to have rocks taken out of his elbow when he slid across our driveway, they were very deep.

Hey, it happens! My dad finally went to the doctor because he had a splinter and thought he got all of it out of his thumb, nope he still had a very small piece of it left in his finger and it got infected! Hope she's doing better and I hope her tree climbing skills improve a little after this so it doesn't happen again!

Ouch! I did that as a kid climbing a wooden basketball poll. At least they are sedating her. I know the whole process was brutal when it happened to me. Hope her hand is all better soon!
