I was funneling my little ones through our bed time routine. Abigayle and Abrianna had been bathed and dressed for bed.
Lucas' turn. Little sister tried to follow him. So he turned around and slammed the hall door... on her fingers. Her ear splitting shrieks where a good indication something was REALLY wrong.
She tore across the room towards me holding out her little hand, with the index finger bent the wrong direction. It looked like a bad cartoon where the characters appendage match what had smashed it. ( Shudder!)
Daddy heard the shrieking. He came out and began to repeatedly tell Lucas in no uncertain terms that the doors where NEVER to be slammed again. EVER.
What noise. Abigayle shrieking, Lucas crying, Rick with raised voice. "Okay people, we need the crying to stop and shoes on. Everybody to the car right now!" "I need little people buckled immediately and on your best behavior!" Out to the van we trooped.
At ER we were shown to a room quickly. But that's where the promptness ended. By the time the x-ray tech was able to come and take pictures the swelling had straightened her finger and she'd stopped crying.
The Dr. said that I need to watch to see if it looks odd or she doesn't use it correctly when the swelling goes down. If that's the case we need to go to her regular Dr. for another x-ray to rule out cartilage damage.
We are all counting our blessings that her little bones wheren't broken. Thank you God.
The rest of the night was rough for Abigayle and momma. 4 hours on the nose as the medication wore off she would wake up crying and saying "owie! owie!"
Today she's bending her finger but not really using it. Guess I'll have to wait and see what will happen...
