Bretts Black Eye

So I got a call from Brett the other morning, as Landon and I were getting ready for church he told me that he had been hit in the eye and was headed to the emergency room. I was half delirious from workin the night before and told him to stop kidding around. He told me he was serious. So of course being the paranoid wife that I am, I called my dad and asked him if he could take Landon and headed over to meet Brett at the ER. When I got there his partner was with him and they were just about to numb him up for stitches. He ended up getting 7 stitches above his eye and a nasty black eye. So how did this happen? Ha ha ha, Brett would like me to say that he was saving a child from a huge house fire and he was the hero of the day but....He was replacing oxygen tanks and grabbed one to lift it by the safety cap on top and, POP it came off and hit him square in the eye. He wanted to just go back to work after the ER, but Captain Rob sent him home because his SCBA wouldn't fit due to his eye being so swollen. He was mad! He'll probably be mad that I posted this, but I want to remember it! Love you Brett!
