Last Thursday, the girls and I walked to meet Scott at the bus stop when he got home. After the exuberant greetings (from the girls ) Catherine decided she’d like to play on the slide and the swing. We gave her about 5 minutes playtime and then said it was time to go. She protested (of course!) and got off the swing to run to another piece of play equipment. Unfortunately she didn’t watch where she was going and ran straight into the crossbar of the A-frame of the swing set.
I cuddled her.
She cried some more.
Scott said, “What’s that above her eye?”
We saw blood.
Scott rang the doctor’s surgery and they told us to go straight to the Mater. So we walked home, got the nappy bag and some food to tide the girls over (this is around dinnertime) and went to the hospital. It was a pretty painless wait to see the Dr and get treated etc. The nurses were wonderful with Catherine, so patient! Catherine didn’t need any stitches, just a little sticky bandage.
At home before going to the hospital
As you can see, she’s smiling already!
Dinner was late of course, so we just got some fast food.
Catherine very happy about dinner!
The morning after…the poor little sausage!
She’s fine now with just a little scab and yellow “eyeshadow”.
