Poor Brycey!

On top of poor Bryce's recently scraped nose, his odd rash from the other day and his allergy issues, he had an accident as they were leaving daycare yesterday. Jason said he was walking along all proud (and cute!) and he decided to let him walk out of daycare on his own for the first time. Well, Bryce was just walking along and tripped. Jason said it didn't even look like a bad fall and was almost in slow motion. But when he got up, blood was everywhere. They couldn't tell at first where it was coming from because his hands were in it and he was rubbing it everywhere. They went back inside and got him cleaned up and it continued to bleed a little. It looks like he hit his upper lip on the sidewalk which then hit his teeth causing an abrasion on the outside and a bruise (maybe some bleeding there too?) on the inside. His poor little upper lip was so swollen. Cathy gave him some ice to suck on since there was no way he was going to let us put a cold compress on it. By the time I got home, the bleeding had stopped, but he kept touching it, either because it hurt or because he was rubbing his nose as he often does with his allergies. I put some Liquid Band-Aid on it to seal it and keep infection out and to keep things that might irritate it out too. Jay had given him ibuprofen already too.

He looked a little bit better this morning, the swelling was a tiny bit better, but it definitely is bruised and the abrasion looks terrible. My poor little guy - he looks just pitiful right now. At least his spirits were better this morning too.

Oh and thanks again to the Wiggles who cheered him up after his fall yesterday - we couldn't have done it w/o you!
