Hmmmm....let's see, its only February and we have now been to see the Dr. for 3 different Ellie owey's this year already!!! Well, one was Dec. 31, so we barely can even count that one. That was when she threw up over and over one night, which she has NEVER done...hardly ever threw up at all, much less over and over. Then a few weeks ago she had a bad cold that just got worse, coughing, runny nose, fever, and I finally just took her in because she was just miserable. Turned out it was just a bad cold but she did have an ear infection, which I would have never known about. Now tonight, she fell, as she often has, and ended up with a HUGE bump. I panicked, called my mommy, and Brian, both said make sure she is acting normal, not throwing up, her eyes seem normal, etc. Just a bump, she's a kid, it happens. Well, the bump kept getting bigger, and bigger...and so instead of worrying about it all night we took her in. Turns out she has a large hematoma (quite a goose egg) The hospital is already one of her favorite places she loves to point out, now tonight she didn't want to leave and cried that she wanted the Dr. as we drove away. My poor baby! I'm not trying to be one of those parents that freaks out every time things aren't normal...but that's the way it looks like I am!!
Hard to capture how big and scary looking this bump is, but luckily she seems to be ok. She seemed more upset when the Tinkerbell sticker the Dr. gave her got stuck in her hair after she put it on her owey.

Ow ow ow ow ow.....I would be crying my eyes out...what a tough little cookie! Tell her she can grow up and BE a doctor and then she can work at her beloved hopsital! Give her lots of hugs and kisses from us!

I am glad she is doing alright. Did she hit her head on a piece of furniture or on the floor?

Was she dancing? She's so tough! I wish I could kiss it Ellie! We will have to make you a frozen "owie" pack! Gram loves you!

She hit her head on the cement outside the shopping center. I was holding her hand, then she wanted to run. She looked at me and said, "Cmon Mama, run." I laughed, said to make sure and stop when I say. She said, "What?" started to stop and tripped and fell. So, if it wasn't for me wanting to go shopping, or letting her run, she would be bump free!

I can TOTALLY see how big it is. OUCH !
Your next one will nearly sever his hand and you will just put a bandaid on it.
That's how it goes with first kids. :) Glad you got her checked out and she's ok.

Oh kids, it's amazing we survive at all!!! Hallie dove into the corner of grandma & grandpa's fireplace a couple weeks ago. Cut her little head right open, blood EVERYWHERE! It was SO scary!!! She ended up with a couple staples. It was rather traumatic, (for mom and dad) she was just super excited about her princess stickers and sucker! Glad miss Ellie is doing better!
