|At the Hospital Waiting for the Doctor|
We rushed off to the emergency room, where the doctor confirmed that she would need stitches to the gash on her nose. The doctor gave her pain medication and a sedative so we could go get an x-ray. Kaylin then got really nervous, she because didn't know what to expect. We just told her it was a massive camera that took pictures of her bones.
My brave wee lassie got her x-ray and we went back to the ER to see the doctor. He injected a numbing agent into her would on her nose, and Kaylin screamed and cried.
Poor wee button - it was really painful....and all I could do was hold her hand. My Boerewors handled the situation beautifully and calmly. He was awesome.
She got four stitches on the bridge of her nose and x-ray revealed no fractures only lots of swollen tissue. I guess she's gonna have a shiner or two with this face plant.
|Xrays show no fractures but she needed 4 stitches|
Two hours in the ER and watching your little one ride the pain meds wave was certainly entertaining. She was high as a kite last night and she couldn't understand why we kept giggling at her silly behaviour.
Now she looks a little like Neytiri from Avatar, minus the blue body paint.
