Once again, my baby girl got hurt. If you remember this post, and also this post, you know she's no stranger to getting hurt.She also had a minor concussion a few weeks back that I didn't even document. Yep. Mom of the year.
A few days ago I was at my mom's watching Kristyn's kids while her and my mom went shopping for her birthday. We were all just hanging out, and most of the kids, aside from Austin, Ben and Hailey, were all upstairs playing. I was washing the dishes from lunch, and talking to the remaining three, and laughing at Hailey as she sang a silly song while playing on the bottom step. All I knew was that she fell and her cry was not a normal "hurt" cry. Austin told me what happened, and it sounds like she hit her nose on the banister,while slipping off the step.
Her nose swelled up instantly, and bled just a little.
Somehow a simple drink of juice makes a little one feel better, so that's the first thing I did, after kissing her little nose of course. I gave it to her with a straw so I could make sure she could breath out of it.
I tried to ice it, but she wouldn't let me because it was right between her eyes and too close to her baby blues for comfort.
She told me she was better and wanted to play upstairs with the rest of the kids.
As she walked away she had the biggest, brave frown I've ever seen.
A few minute later all I heard was pitiful cries from her, so I called her back down to get some tylenol and put her to sleep.
My plan was, and still is, to wait until the swelling goes down and make sure everything looks mostly normal, then go from there.
She woke up that day happy, and ever since has told me that she's "all better now".
This is the third day, and she's still got a very different nose than she used to have. It's just so swollen!
These pictures are from the first day:
|My brother compared her to a muppet at this view.|
These next are from the next day:
These from yesterday:
And today it doesn't look too different.
Hopefully tomorrow I'll notice a difference in the swelling!
This little princess may be sporting a little black eye for a few days.
