This could happen to you!

This past Sunday was my youngest sons third birthday and the scariest thing that could possibly happen happened. I was in my bathroom getting ready for church and Peyton my son  had already had his bath but he wanted to play which is not unusual for him. I usually let him while I fix my hair. Anyway he laying in the bathtub pretending to swim and then he wanted out. I went to get him out. We had these big mirrors around our tub 4'X4' and out of the corner of my eye as went to get him out I saw one of them start to fall. I tried to catch it but it was just to heavy even though I wouldn't let go of it as it fell on my 3 yr old. I screamed and his dad came running and when he seen what had happened he also started screaming. My hands were still under the mirror and I had to lift the mirror so his dad could pick him up and that is when I got a glimpse of his injury. We had to call 911 to get him to the hospital because there was no way we take him in the car, injuries to bad. I rode with him to the hospital. The whole time this is going on and all these people are working on my son he is completely calm. He screamed when the mirror fail on him and that was it. I was afraid he was in shock but he wasn't. The only other time he cried was when they had to give him a shot at the hospital to put him to sleep so they could sew him up. Any way he ended up with over thirty stitches. The worst was so deep it nicked a muscle deep enough it had to be stitched also. The Dr. said he stopped counting at thirty. The reason I am posting this please if you mirrors around your house and especially around the bathtub make sure they are securely fastened to your wall or this could happen to you. I am including pictures of him so you can see the damage this did.
