Questionable injuries

Sam was playing "hide and seek" with MIL and his puppets, spun around and lost his balance (like mother, like son). The following pictures are the result of Sam's eye meeting the corner of the sun room chair. It's split and scraped, no damage to the eyeball itself.

Everyone knows I'm probably a little quick (okay, okay, no little about it) to jump the gun on dr appt. But when you get an injury like this one, I do take a step back. After all, nothing they can do about it. Stitches aren't necessary, I gave him Tylenol and he seems to be settled down. A bit leery, but settled nonetheless.

He has what appears to be a blood bubble on the lid and when he cries, it moistens and bleeds into his eye.

So, the question is whether or not to call the pedi in the morning to have him checked out or even to go to Urgent Care to have him looked at today.

Andrea - I'd take him to have it checked. You are probably right - but, with the eyes - IMO - it's worth it for peace of mind! Good luck and let us know what happens.

Annie, I'm going to take's not drying out at all because the eye keeps watering. Can you email me?

Just have to find the funds to do it.
