Logan Put A Screwdriver Thru His Foot

Yes you did read the title of my blog post right. My 3 year old, Logan, put a screwdriver thru his foot a couple weeks ago. That was one of the scariest things I've witnessed, that he has done yet. 
So we had just got back from a long, fun day at the beach. My fiancĂ©, his friend, and I were unpacking the car and I had sent our 14 year old daughter, my 10 year old cousin, and our 3 year old son out back to play until we were done and then I would start dinner. Well maybe ten minutes later I hear my son screaming and my daughter saying that he's bleeding and my fiances friend saying it's pretty bad. She gets him up to our front porch an we clean him up to look at it but the blood wasn't stopping. His foot just kept bleeding. So I of course start to panic. I asked how did this happen. From what was explained to me he had found one of his fathers flat head screw drivers and stabbed the ground and when his sister seen him do that she ran from across the yard to get it from him but she was too late because he picked it up and second time and stabbed his foot instead of the ground. Well I sent the girls over to my moms and to the emergency room we went. My poor baby was freaking out and crying. We couldn't calm him down or nothing. They initially wanted to look at his foot when checking him in so we did that and that's when we found out that he had put the screw driver all the way thru his foot and pulled it back out. So he had an open wound on the top and and the bottom. Well they did x rays and focus out he missed everything in his foot. He was very lucky. It took four of us holding him down for the Dr to put three stitches in the top of his foot. They didn't put any in the bottom because they wanted the foot to drain any infection if it were to get one. 
Well we went back a week later to get the stitches out. Two had fallen out on their own. He was very brave about letting them get the last one out. His foot healed really well. They said if it reopened or turns really red to come back. It's been about a month now and it's been doing really well. 
I must say he is now afraid of that screw driver. He knows better then to pick it up now. But boys will be boys. This was his first real injury and first time getting stitches but I'm pretty sure this won't be his last.
