Kyle's First "Big" Boo Boo

Last night Kyle was running around the living room with a blanket over his head and tripped. He landed mouth first on the chair and started screaming and bleeding. It took a while to get him calmed down and the bleeding mostly stopped after 20 minutes or so... but continued on and off for a while. He ate dinner fine, so we figured he was okay. He wouldn't let us look in his mouth though so we weren't really sure where all the blood came from.

This morning when Kyle woke up his upper lip was all puffy and he kept pointing to his mouth saying "oww." He let me look and his gum and inside of his lip were all black and blue. I called the pediatrician and talked to the nurse. She said he probably should be seen just to make sure he didn't do an damage, so I made an appointment for this afternoon, but she told me if it started bleeding again to take him over to urgent care. About five minutes after I got off the phone with the nurse, Kyle came over to me with a mouth full of blood... so we got Grandpa Franks to come over and all took a trip to urgent care.

After waiting in the waiting room for a long time... we finally got to go back and see the doctor. She peeked around in Kyle's mouth while I held him down and said that everything looked okay. She said he just has a really bad bruise and to giving him lots of popsickles and motrin, and to watch him for signs of a concussion. They sent us on our way with an Ice Pop for each kiddo.
