Yesterday I got a call from the school saying that Miss Busy and another boy had run into each other on the playground and she needed Mom's attention. Bear was home still so I left right away and went to school.
There was quite a commotion in the nurse's office, Miss Busy had ice on her eye and another boy was hanging his head over a garbage can.
Miss Busy had a huge knot over her left eye, the boy would require stitches and the paramedics had been called, he had a possible concussion.
I had the paramedics look at Miss Busy while they were there, they recommended a CT scan because of the amount of swelling on her eye.
We took her to the ER and after 4 hours finally got in to see the Doc. By this time her eye was completely swollen shut and very painful. The CT scan showed no fracture, just severe bruising and swelling. The Doc, in a previous career, was a boxer, and he said he has never seen, (or had) any eye injury swell up like this one did. He thinks she ruptured a blood vessel and it just exploded causing it all to pool around her eye.
She'll be swollen for a few days and black and blue over the left side of her face for a while.
Thought I'd share a picture, she won't go near a mirror, it makes her cry.
Just when I thought things were settling down and I could start blogging about my fabulous trip, here comes another calamity.
I will tell you all about my "mini-honeymoon and vacation" I promise. Soon.
