Olivia's First ER Visit



Well, those of you who know Olivia well, are surely surprised that her first ER visit didn't come before now! But, she is 21 months old and has just had her first visit to the Emergency Room. She decided she was through sitting in her high chair and climbed out and fell to the floor. She bled some, cried some, needed a few hugs, and then relatively quickly forgot all about it. We felt like since it was her face and she had obviously hit her head, we should probably take her to the emergency room to have it looked at. In the short time that it took us to get there, she appeared totally fine, running around the waiting room, pointing to the vending machines, and saying, "Nak!"
The doctor looked at her wound and decided that a little dermabond would be all that was necessary. They put a steri-strip on it to secure it so that she wouldn't pick at it. Olivia lost the steri strip sometime the second day! It has been about a week and a half since it happened now, and she is almost healed to the point where you can hardly tell at all. So, I completely anticipate in a few more weeks, there may not even be a scar.
Sweet Olivia!
