Because I haven't seen enough of hospitals with my youngest this year; A (2 & half) cut her head open yesterday tea-time after messing around with her older sister (thinking they were twirling each other around or something), it looked pretty deep so we rung the docs who wouldn't look at it and told us to go to local Minor Injuries Unit which we did but they couldn't fix it so sent us on to A&E. She was such a star and really brave, she had some strips put on and we finally got home at 10. She's fine today, just really tired as she's normally asleep in bed at 6:30! It was scary though initially cos of the blood and how deep it looked but it could have been a lot worse if it had been on her eye rather than just above her eyebrow. She's very pleased the nice doctor gave her a teddy to bring home and stickers.

Poor A, I'm glad she's ok and how lovely of the doctor to give her a teddy and stickers x

Oh dear, kids eh!! Glad it's nothing too major and i hope she's on the mend soon xx

Glad it wasn't more serious and she was fine with going to the hospital.

Oh poor you, glad she is ok. N did the same thing but walking (running) into a heavy metal door at school. I got there just after it happened which was quite good for me as the teachers had cleared up most the blood!

Thanks everyone. She's terrible with strangers normally so I was extremely proud of how she handled it all. She's bouncing around this morning like nothing's happened!

Horrible for you, pleased she's OK now and bouncing round like normal.
Cuts are horrid when they're deep. My friends little boy cut his hand ages ago and there was so much blood for what was a small but deep cut. Its just that horrible moment when part of your brain is hoping its not as bad as it looks while the other part is telling you that it is, and a simple plaster isn't going to be enough.

Thanks Cedar, when I initially heard the screams from A & F I could hardly dare to look at the damage, that was the scariest part! Luckily I'm not squeamish although my legs were shaking but I think that was the shock. Just hope it doesn't leave too much of a scar, the doc said it's in a 'good' place so fingers crossed.

The scar will fade to almost nothing but will probably always be there if you look really hard. N's is a very very faint pink line now and I think that happened sometime last year before Christmas.
