(Look at the bottom of the post for a picture of the offending sub)
Luckily I have a doctor on call for just such accidents. What? Aren't you prepared for nautical disasters that happen on dry land? You really should have a submarine/pedestrian accident plan. As we headed home, my oldest alternated calling our home phone and her dad's cell until Peter woke up enough to hear ringing and answer. I explained that there was a gash right at the hairline, not long, but deep enough to need something done, that we were headed home, and that I had accidentally taken both sets of car keys so he couldn't save time and meet us at swim lessons. I also had to explain that I was unable to tell from the front of the Suburban if she was still bleeding in the back of the Suburban.
We arrived home to find Peter just out of the shower. He looked at the wound and said, "You didn't tell me it was gaping!" to which I replied "Why else would I have called you? It's not like I tend to overreact." (Which is totally true, you'd think after 13 years he would know that if I call with a medical problem it is REALLY a medical problem- I think bleeding makes for a great story and fevers don't count until they top 105.)
Anyway, it isn't often you get treated by a towel wearing doctor while laying on his unmade bed. Peter deftly numbed her with lidocaine and put two staples in her head. When I asked her if it hurt, because it looked like it hurt, she said it felt like Dad had stapled her. She was less than happy when I told her that is exactly what happened. She also didn't appreciate the Frankenstein reference I made.
I gave her some ibuprofen and tried to convince her a band-aid would make it better enough to not miss swim lessons. We were in and out in 5 minutes, tops. All told, we were only a couple minutes late for lessons, but Kirsti opted to sit out; which was probably for the better as there was still a slow trickle of blood running down her forehead.
The sub on the right is the one that ran over our little girl (or more accurately that she attempted to run over):
