Glad your sons are okay

Lord, Grant me a good sword and no need to use it.
We didn't send the wounded to school today..
I'll keep you good folks posted..
His face as you can see is very swollen.
Prayers sent. My two sons are now grown up, but we had a few incidents in the past. Hope everything goes well!
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes ... they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. Thomas Jefferson
Glad it turned out as I guessed it would. Nice gash, but they always look worse than they really are. And a tiny battle scar is good too. It is a daily reminder to be a little more cautious.
Wow, my Dad lost his right eye that way when he was a kid.
Prayer sent for a quick recovery and a thanks that it wasn't worse.
When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.
When I was a boy, my brother ran into me with his bike and I ended up with stitiches right in the middle of my chest. I hope you boy is well. Certainly, my prayers for you and your family.

Thank you all so very much from our family..
My son is in good spirits today, and this is what he looks as of 15 min's ago.
God Bless Y'all..
He is going to hear lots of crap from friends about how much it hurts to get those sutures taken out. Let him know now that it won't be a big deal and the people who tell him it is awful are exaggerating. He doesn't need to be walking around for 10 days worrying about that part.
And make sure he keeps the area dry for a couple of days. Let your wife wash his face with a damp towel, avoiding the area, and let him wash the rest himself with a damp towel. If he was given an antibacterial ointment to apply to the suture line, use it.
All in all, yesterday was your family's lucky day. No real damage; lessons learned by both kids; and your extra gray hair now can be easily explained away. Sounds like a fair deal all in all.
Kids are a life sentence. Just think of what lies ahead--- teaching them to drive.
Bless you for your kindness and tenderness to the eldest as well as your care to the younger. You're a good dad. I thank God it has gone OK and wasn't worse.

Praying - a little late, perhaps, but looks like others picked up the slack...
