Lillie’s Chin

On Tuesday night, Lillie and Sophie were playing in the garage when I heard a big thump, followed by screaming. Lillie had fallen off of the garage steps and conked her chin on the concrete floor. There was blood everywhere and it was really spurting out of her chin. Becky wasn’t around, so I called gromper who came over and took us down to urgent care. Lillie had to get 5 stitches in her chin, and is probably going to have a little scar there for a while.

I took a picture of her on my cell phone just before she got surgery. Sad, sad, baby. It may not look like much blood in the picture, but I put her on her back while I was cleaning her up, and a lot of blood soaked into the back of her shirt.

Rant: they call it “urgent care”, but I think that is sort of a misnomer. It took us an hour to talk to the triage nurse, and 4 1/2 hours before we got to see a doctor. Not a fun way to spend an evening. Fortunately, Granmolly and Gromper were able to take Sophie so she didn’t have to wait around being bored with us, and Lillie slept for a couple hours in the waiting room. But still, not fun.

    Gromper says it’s a dueling scar.
