After seeing what Mia went through today, I want to say that this was her worst day ever. Then, I remember how much she suffered in my belly when my blood pressure was affecting her for so many weeks, or when she needed one or two blood works per day to check her Platelets when she had Dengue, or when she was hospitalized for a few days a month ago.

We left all together this morning... We took the girls to the Summer Camp close to home where I can pay per day when I need it, Mimi went to her school, I went to work, and Hubby went to take care of my grandpa. Everything was going just fine, and hubby also had a very important meeting at 2:00pm. My phone rang, and I got the call that Im sure every mom who has kids somewhere else, is afraid to receive. Mia was playing with the swings in the backyard, felt on the floor and it looks like a little rock spot her head and she cracked her head open!! The nurse managed to stop the blood, she was conscious, and it didnt look that bad when the blood stopped, but I needed to pick her up ASAP. They even had to get her a new shirt from the ones that they are selling for the Summber Camp as the shirt was full of blood. So, I got out of work and took her to the ER myself, so hubby were able to stay with my grandpa.

I gotta say that one of the reasons why Im married to a EMT is to be able to avoid needing to handle this situations by myself (I will have married him either way, but you guys get the point). Of course I could have switched with hubby and take care of my grandpa while he was taking Mia to the ER, but there was no way I was going to leave my baby's side.

After the traumic situation of actually falling at school, my poor thing had to handle TWO stitches, a tetanus shot, and X-Rays!! For the X-Rays, she was refussing so much, and with so much strenght that I had to literally get on top of the X-Ray table and hold her hands and body from any movement, while another person was holding her head. She cried, scream, and cried a bit more.... I was heartbroken, and just so sorry for my poor little thing.

She is acting mostly normal, but it does hurts when she seats on her booster seat, the high chair or lay down in the bed, and it is in the exact middle on the back of the head. I got pictures of it, but I didnt want to post them as I dont want anybody to get scared... If somebody wants to see a picture, just email me. Here are pictures of her at my office while she was waiting for daddy to pick her up. I got her a bed from preschool, and a little chair from the first graders (the only classroom open), and she was very happy.

Poor Mia! Thats such an overwhelming day and a not so nice boo boo! I'm glad she is ok and that nothing more was needed than a couple stitches. Although having had stitches once myself as an adult, I can say thats not an easy thing to endure!

Guzzie said...

Andrea said...

Poor little thing!! I am glad she is feeling better now! I would have been sick to my stomach getting a call like that!

Momto3LittleFlowers said...

Andrea: I hate those calls.... And I do get sick sometimes when I close my eyes and the imagine of her falling and not being there for her, just wont go away in my head.

Anelys we both know how easy it is for our kids to get hurt. I am glad it was only a couple of stitches. You are doing the best you can and one day the girls will thank you for it.

Oh sweet Mia! I got one of those calls when Spencer was 2 also. It was from the ER cause my sitter was out with him at the mall and headed strait to the ER after he ran into a door and split his head open. It was funny cause the nurse I talked to said Spencer was fine but she was more worried about our sitter cause she was so upset. I'm glad your little angel is going to be OK.

Emma said...

ay la pobre. I hope she's doing better.

Momto3LittleFlowers said...

I just realized I never answered back!! You guys are so nice for keeping her in mind... She is still complains sometimes, but Im hoping that is normal...

 

We buy most of the things online, so I have wishlists to have in one place everything that we are planning (or at least hoping) to buy.
