Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson recently shared a concerning incident that occurred after a girls' night out, where she ended up in the emergency room with her 2-year-old son, Jett. Johnson took to her Instagram Story to update her followers on the situation, expressing gratitude to the medical staff for their care.

The mishap took place after Johnson and her husband put their children to bed. Upon hearing Jett crying, Johnson rushed to his room and found him with a facial injury. It was later revealed that Jett had fallen while trying to get back into his bed in the dark, hitting his face on the metal bed frame.

After watching the incident on video footage, Johnson decided to take Jett to the emergency room. The medical team promptly attended to Jett, administering stitches to the wound under his eyebrow. Despite the ordeal, Johnson praised her son for being brave throughout the process, even likening it to a character from a popular movie.

Jett received multiple stitches both internally and externally, with Johnson providing details on the procedure. She shared a glimpse of Jett proudly displaying his 'boo boo' while sitting beside her on the sofa, indicating that he was doing well post-treatment.

Johnson's transparency about the incident serves as a reminder of the unpredictable nature of parenting and the importance of being prepared for emergencies. Her candid account also highlights the resilience of young children in facing challenges and recovering from minor accidents.
