I walk in the office, he pulls the ice of his face and...
But I kept my cool. This is the first picture I took with my cell phone, we were at a clinic in the hospital. This was taken about 90 minutes after the accident and the swelling had really gone down at this point. Seriously, the swelling was way worse at the school. It was extending all the way across his cheeks to the middle of the eye.
I called Lineman who had our middle son with him and they came and met us at the hospital. I was so glad that Lineman had gotten home from being on the road. He was gone this week and made it home in the middle of the night last night.
It turns out this poor boys nose is broken in two places. The visiting ENT happened to be in town today and took a look at the x-rays. He said it looked pretty good and he wouldn't need to do anything. I guess we are to just watch it and see if it's straight at the end of 7 days. Then we take him back in if it's not straight. Sorry about the bloody nose but it just keeps bleeding lightly. The doc said don't worry about cleaning it at all until tomorrow, just too tender right now.
We are also keeping an eye on him because he was extremely quiet this evening. Obviously he is hurting but I'm worried about him. We all are.
We suggested he sleep in the recliner tonight. Then his younger brother wanted to sleep with him (they sleep together on bunk beds). So we put our middle son on the couch. Well, then he wanted his dad to be there too. So Lineman is in another recliner sleeping. Then Little Man couldn't sleep so he is finally sleeping in Lineman's arms.
And me, the odd girl out, is blogging away.
But I'm tired and going to bed while all the boys sleep in the living room.
This living with all boys, it's a wild ride!
