Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall....Humpty Dumpty had a great fall :(

We went to a local park to have some family pics taken. We were heading back to where our stroller was and the decided to have a few pics on a small wall that was in front of a small pond. Sound really nice, right.

Yeah, all was well until Elsie lunged forward and fell FACE FIRST on to the ground below. And, by ground, I mean gravel, slate, rocks, etc.

She was screaming!!! Of course there was lots of blood as well. She cut inside of her nose, and blood mixed with snot looks like tons more blood.

In a few minutes she was falling asleep. This made me really nervous. We were not in our local area, so I did not know if there was a hospital near us. Turned out the hospital that I knew of (and never been to) was the closest - at about 25 minutes away.

I sat in the 3rd row behind Elsie and had to wake her up every few minutes. Seriously, I don't think Frank ever drove so fast in his life. We almost pulled over and called 911, but figured we would be at the hospital before help arrived. I did not know if she was just tired, or if she was passing out. So scary!

We got to the hospital and they took us right in. The dr examined her and thought she might have broken her nose. Since it is a head injury, they did a CT Scan. Everything came back clear - nothing wrong except tons of scrapes and bruises.

Frank was so upset - he really thought is was his fault. Accidents happen. And, I am sure it will not the last time we are in the ER. I feel bad that he was so upset.

On the plus side

1) at least it was the last pic and not the first
2) my goodness, Elsie's eyes are so blue
3) I got to see the inside of a local hospital

Here is my pretty girl
