Yesterday was a little bit of a crazy day in our house. We got to make a surprise visit to the dr.'s office. Poor little Ash was trying to get her cup from off the kitchen island. She stepped up onto one of the rungs on the bottom of a barstool and before she knew it her little toes slipped right off. She landed chin first on the seat of the stool. :( At first I thought it was a just a simple bitten tongue, until it kept bleeding and she kept screaming...then I realized she was bleeding from her chin too. She had bitten right through her lip!!!
Now, for those of you that know me, it is a miracle that I have two children...by c-section none the less! From the time I was little I have NOT handled anything having to do with the medical industry well. ;) I am still known at the Kaiser hospital in SD from the time I was 5 and had to get my "starting school" shots. After I sent the nurses on a mad dash to catch me it took 5 of them plus my mom to hold me down. :) My mom's reaction when she heard the news was...did you take someone to drive you to the doctor??? (knowing that I probably shouldn't have been driving in my condition..lol!! forget ash...i was the one experiencing major trauma! :) But seriously, I called the doctor, we ran over and fortunately she was chatting everyone up by the time we got there and the bleeding had stopped. One of her teeth just barely pierced the skin. Thank goodness!! If it had been any worse the day's adventures would have continued with a visit to the oral surgeon I was told. whew!!! Needless to say she is in a lot of pain and will have the worlds biggest canker sore until the wound heals, but we're just grateful we didn't lose any teeth or cause any scarring on that precious little face!!
Before the "incident" I snapped these shots of my little cutie...thank goodness!! These smiles will have to hold me over for a few days until I see some more from that little fat lipped girl!!
love you baby girl!!
have a great day!
