Ethan got attacked by a dog, just like I did when I was four

My nephew Ethan who just turned four called me this weekend.  He starts with Uncle Derek I’m in the hospital, I said why, he said a dog bit me, I asked where, He says all over my face.  He’s heard the story I’m sure about me being attacked by a dog when I was four, he asked before about the scar beside my eye.  I sure hate the little fellow is hurting and going through this.  Dena said the swelling is finally going down today.   This picture was taken at my Nana’s shortly after I was attacked by a dog. You can notice my how swollen by eye was. I’m not sure why I like this picture but I do. Being attacked by our neighbors dog was one of my first memories, guess sometime those traumatic things just seem to stay in our memories. I remember running from the dog, and trying to get over the fence, one of our neighbors had put me in their yard, which they weren’t supposed to do. I remember screaming for my mom, and then the next thing I remember was riding in the back of a car with people holding me down and trying to keep me calm. Then the doctor’s putting a sheet over my head with a hole cut in it that fit right over my eye, so they cut stitch me up. I bet I wasn’t a pretty sight. I guess being a parent must be a pretty scary thing. And even harder when their little ones get hurt. I’m still trying to figure out why I love this picture so much, maybe because I loved it out at my Nana’s. Her farm was so calm and peaceful. I also felt like someone was watching over me in the picture, not sure why though.
They said he kept saying he wanted to talk to Uncle Derek after he got bit.  Times like those I wish I could just jump in a car and pick him up and give him a big ole Uncle Derek hug.  First day back today after a long weekend.  It was actually a pretty good day. 

I also did engagement shoot today at Chance and Keri’s, they are a beautiful couple.  Can’t wait to do their wedding.  Should be posting some of them soon, but probably on my other blog.
