Boo Boo

We had a little scare this afternoon that resulted in an unplanned trip to the doctor's office. My "graceful" daughter tripped over her rocking horse in her bedroom and fell face first into her dresser. Michael happened to be home about to start doing some yard work, or I would probably be in the hospital with a heart attack right now! I have never seen so much blood in my life. By the time we got to the doctor's office I wasn't even sure if we had left any teeth behind. Fortunately, the cut on the outside of her mouth wasn't deep enough to need stitches, just these little glue strips to hold the cut together. When we left, Michael said to me he's pretty sure she's going to have a scar but thought the doctor was a little scared to tell the crazy pregnant lady. The inside of her mouth was pretty bad though. He had to cut, yes cut, without numbing, some loose skin away. But he said with it being inside her mouth, it would probably heal quicker without stitches. And we're on a 10 day run of amoxicillin, what an eventful afternoon!

Awe! So sorry to read about the boo-boo. I think she will look precious with a summer hair cut! Such a pretty girl!!
