06-10-15 Want to see a gross toe?

C and E were running around outside last night when C tripped and fell. She got a pretty bad scrape on her knee and hurt her toe. I cleaned and bandaged them and she went to bed. When she got up this morning it wasn't looking too good. The toe had been oozing and the skin looked pretty damaged. I cleaned it and rebandaged it and proceeded to obsess about it all day. I decided to take her to the doctor just to make sure it was ok. 

After a short wait the doctor came in and took a look at it.

She said that "the skin was reattaching nicely." I'm pretty sure I felt a shiver down my spine with that phrase! (I don't do well with other people's blood or injuries!) she didn't want to risk introducing an infection by stitching it, so she prescribed an antibacterial cream that I need to apply three times a day. Yay...

So here's to praying that the wound heals clean and quick!
