Head Injury

So I mentioned Isaiah's head injury; Monday night he had an unfortunate run-in with the ceiling fan. He was leaning out over the edge of the bunk bed a bit too far and the fan clipped him in the forehead. It left a good sized gash and we we unsure of whether or not to go to the dr. Mon night, but Tues. morning he woke up all bloddy and gross, so off to the doctor we went. She said that it is more like a crush injury than a laceration, and even though it is pretty deep, there was nothing she could do- no edges to pull together. She recommeded a wet healing which means scrubbing off the scab daily and applying bacitracin (sp?). Yes that is as fun as it sounds. (ughhh) But it's looking better already. Here's a little pic although it doesn't do the depth justice.

Oh, poor buddy!! That looks quite yucky, especially when I clicked on the picture. My tetrazinni got digested twice!

Ok, maybe not - but it's pretty graphic and shows some depth upon enlarging...that's a disclaimer for anyone else who may enlarge! :)
