So today has been a nightmare. Eden was having a nap on Gavin's big boy bed and I just had two pillows on each side of the bed to prevent her from rolling off. Ya so that technique is obviously not guaranteed for safety. That's not new information. But we still need to get shades for her window because the sun just blares through her curtains and it's too bright for napping. That's why I had her in Gavin's room.
So she was having a nice nap and I was keeping Gavin entertained with painting Christmas ornaments. After that he was begging me to play hockey in the basement (what else is new?)
So we were in the basement and I was "watching his game" when I hear a loud THUMP!
Instantly I knew Eden rolled off the bed and I ran up the stairs so fast but I didn't eat her crying. I found her face down on Gavin's floor. You know that long pause before a baby starts to really WAIL?!! I picked her up and her whole face was covered in blood. She exhaled and just started screaming! I didn't know where the blood was coming from and I instantly just called 911.
John was out DJing a school dance and he had the truck with the car seats.
I could not even hear the 911 operator because Eden was screaming. He told me to put her down so I could hear but I wouldn't. Gavin was so scared. I got a wad of paper towel and dabbed her face and saw a puncture wound in the middle of her forehead. It was so scary. I put pressure on it and the bleeding was under control. It was horrible.
It took about ten minutes for the ambulance to come. She freaked out even more when I laid her on the couch so they could look at her. We cleaned her up and she was ok as long as I could hold her.
We looked in Gavin's room to see what she fell on. I wasn't sure because I picked her up and ran for the phone as soon as I saw all the blood.
I could clearly see after that she fell on the wooden farm puzzle on the floor. She fell right into the plastic peg sticking up out of the puzzle piece. The cow is covered in blood :(
We had to take a ride in the ambulance and Gavin was so brave, sitting quietly and he even got to push some buttons.
She ended up having to get 2 stitches on her forehead. It was horrible when we had to swaddle her and hold her down. She screamed worse than ever when she was getting the stitches.
My poor sweet baby :( I feel so horrible. I hope it doesn't leave a bad scar.
This was her before the stitches :(
Her eyes are all swollen from crying :(
Merry frigging Christmas
