Long week I've beenTagged!

Heres the short of a VERY LONG week between my little girl being hospitalized home sick again then this morning my little man wakes up at the crack of dawn of course I'm in a wet towel getting out of the shower and he's sitting on his bed screaming! I run to him and he has blood all over his face, side of head ear, hair! Ewww! What in the world happened???? I ask him what happened he has no clue thats he was even bleeding at first gets up hugs says he had a bad dream and was scared a monster or something who knows.. Anyway I get a cloth to wash him up my little girl sees him and freaks demands to know why he has blood all over his face! I thought the side of his head or something , ear I couldn't find it, so I get him all cleaned up ready to breakfast and when he opened his mouth he starts bleeding again! OH NO!! We found it! I gound it about 1 inch long or more actually and about 1/2 inch deep right through the back of his bottom lip in his mouth sliced clean and chucks missing!! OUCH!! The poor thing, he was so hungry but didn't want to really eat, now this from a boy who absolutely LOVES to eat...Now wonder he wanted to eat but couldn't really get the food in....So I get the falshlight and get another good loksie! Oooooh WOWWWW! He could use some stisthces! Ok One get my daughter to school two get to either the DR or hospital?? Called DRs they want him tot goto the ER they don't want to touch the face wounds especially lips/mouth area.. Wonderful Grabbed some gauze and out the door. At the bus stop (I drove today) my son in the car so pathertic looking holding the gauze in his mouth because after drinking it continued to bleed again. I asked him what happened after I checked his bed, in around and under couldn't find a thing that would've cut him like that. He said his teeth did it he bit himself?? Now who does this?? I've been know to naw the inside of my mouth but a 'v' shaped deep cut like this, it's so nasty! but who does this???????? Why?? I just dont' get it...so a couple other mothers see him and come over to the car to see what was wrong and seem him, he shows off his booboo and one mother walks away the other is like oh wow! Looks like lots of stitches for that one how??? Told them who does this?? I don't know?! This lady offer to help and got my little girl on the bus and met the bus after school good thing too I was still at the hospital! Spent a good part of the day there, couldn't find a way to get stitches in there concerned about infection, they hesitate about giving him an antibiotic becasue it's not infected right now but think it will be real soon because they can't get it closed up so we have to let it heal on its own... We have to go back on Monday but if it turn red on the outside then sooner but not to worry about all the colors and nasties that I'll be seeing in the meantime on the wound itself and inside his mouth, they said it will get real nasty and don't be alarmed even though it'll appear to be infected not to worry unless it purtrudes outside.. YUK!! My hubby will be home tomorrow sometime has been out of state on business the past couple days.. Liquid diet and soft food as tolerated.... yeah right like thats'll be enough for a growing little 4 y.o right?

Now people say bad luck comes in threes I can't help but wonder if theres any truth to this and whats next??? My head hurts! lol i need to knit some, it's 10:30pm and I'm just sitting down, to much to catch up on to tired and just want to kick back unwind relax and maybe sleep but I'll do this real quick now

Geez, that's horrible about your son! Mouths are made to heal quickly though, so hopefully it won't take too long. Poor little guy.

When my sister was little she stood and leaned on the back of a chair and fell - split her lip wide open! She was fine though (we called the Dr. but they said just wait) and it didn't leave a scar or anything.

Hope you never get your #3!

Reina said...

Wow, that sounds so trying! Sending good thoughts and wishes your way at least!

Martita said...

Oh, that poor baby! He probably had a bad dream and bit his mouth really hard. I know, who does that, but still, how else could it have happened?

I bet it will heal quickly, too. Did the doctor say whether or not you could put Anbesol or the like on it? It must hurt something fierce.

Mandy said...

Wow what a week! I hope that things start going beter! Poor baby! I hope he is feeling better soon!

Jennifer said...

You take the prize as the worst week. Good Lord!! I hope everyone heals up soon and you get some rest.

me myself and i said...

omg!!! Your poor boy!!! You need some TLC kiddo! I hope DH gets home soon! Big hugs for you!

mf said...

Thank you everyone! Can't use anbesol or anything on it, to open and it will sting something fierce I'd imagine! They said to just keep it clean and rinse often and watch for infection. He's handling it quite well I think!

Jenn said...

Goodness! Poor you and poor kids! Hope things start getting better. And hope your little boy and girl are feeling better. Let's hope the old saying isn't true about the threes thing, ok? Think positive! :)
