Scary and productive morning

This morning, as we were getting ready to leave for playgroup, I smashed Sam's fingers in the hinge side of the nursery door. It was horrible, and yes, I have a HUGE amount of guilt over this. Her poor fingers were flat with black and blue grooves in them. One was also bent funny, so off to the doctor we went to make sure that nothing was broken, crushed, or dislocated. She finally stopped crying about the time we got to the doctors office, but was still moaning a bit. She was quite the trooper though, and willingly showed the doctor her fingers and let him manipulate them. I am so proud of her. The end result is that worse case, there might be a little bone chip (can't do anything for that), but it looks like it's just a bad contusion. All of the fingers are swollen a little bit with one being twice it's normal size. We should be back to normal in a couple of days.

The upside to all this is that I found my cell phone, digital camera, and hairbrush in the process.

glad she's alright! and don't beat yourself up, it's a minor injury and she'll be fine enough soon.

another upside, maybe this means you get a break from poop throwing for a few days. hey, i'm just trying to find another benefit!

It was all in the diaper bag which I had to take out of the car when we went in to see the doctor.
