Day #30: Big Fat Goose Egg
Phinehas is a fairly clumsy kid, but he is getting better. He just trips alot. We asked the peditrician about it, but he wasn’t concerned. It doesn’t seem to be a balance thing. His eye sight is great. He watched him walk and all looked good. His shoes fit well. He’s just not quite the world’s best walker. Doesn’t seem to bother him. He falls down. He gets up.
Well, last night, he fell down. Not while he was walking, but I had gotten out the vacuum cleaner and was going to go plug it in, when he tried to use it to vacuum. It must’ve knocked him off balance because he fell over backwards and fell down the 3 steps to our tile-floor entryway. And let out a big cry. I held him for a minute or so, then looked him over. BIG, HUGE, GIGANTIC goose egg on his forehead.
He’s okay though. No signs of anything serious. We called the nurse’s line to be sure and they didn’t have any concerns and told us what to look for. They did say that it could take up to a week for the swelling to go down. Luckily, we don’t have any family pictures planned.
