At 8 pm last night Ava had a little accident. She's still a bit wobbly at times and fell face first onto a speaker. Neither Paul nor I were in the room when it happened. All we saw was the crazy amounts of blood coming from her face. I immediately start panicking, I don't do well with blood especially when it's SPURTING out of my baby's face. It took us awhile to find exactly where she was cut. (Inside her mouth by upper teeth and inside and outside lower lip.) The outside cut shown in the above pictures was gapping open and we had thought it went all the way through the lip, but thankfully it didn't. We took her to the hospital to get it checked out. I was really nervous about her getting stitches because I didn't want her to have a big scar. I was hoping to just super glue it, but apparently that's not an option with the cut so close to her mouth. The doctor didn't know if stitching it would leave a bigger scar or not so we opted to let it heal on it's own. When she woke up this morning it looked 100 times better. Hopefully she won't scar too badly.
