My poor Joshie fell on Tuesday night and hit his head on the toy lawn mower. I guess when you are going full speed ahead even a toy lawn mower can do some damage. It freaked my hubby and I out just because we had never seen a bump so big. The size of the thing was alarming and so I took some pictures of it and emailed them to my Mom, who is a nurse. I'm not in the habit of taking pictures of my kid's injuries. Not usually. But I called my Mom to get advice on whether or not I should take him to the doctor and I though a picture or two would help her to make a recommendation. Thankfully, we did not have to take him to the doctor and after ice was applied for several minutes (on and off) the swelling did go down some. And now there is just a bruise there with a bit of swelling. You would think after a knot of that size that the bruise would be huge too but it's not. Just a little one right in the middle of the knot. I told him it looked like he was going to sprout a unicorn's horn! I don't think he appreciated that. My Dad remarked that we could paint an eyeball on it and that Josh could then have 3 eyes! Josh didn't go for that...durn.
Just another shot so you can fully appreciate the size of this bump!
