A Little Skinned Up

If you remember from my last post, I told you to commit Charly's sweet face to memory.  This is why...

This is what her face looks like now.
Let's take a closer look, shall we?

She was running at a friends house across the street and tripped on their patio.
She literally skinned her lip!  It was the weirdest thing I have ever seen!

Look how big and spacey her eyes are!
She skinned from her lips, all the way up into her hair on the left side of her face.
She also skinned both knees and both hands.

When we looked inside her mouth, we noticed something behind her teeth.
At first, we thought it was a chipped tooth, but we weren't sure, so we took her to the InstaCare.

We found out that it was her gums.  They are swollen and bruised, but her teeth seem to be fine.
The doctor said that there were some minor cuts and some nasty bruises.  They just cleaned her up good and told us to give her Motrin and popcicles for the swelling.

She was so brave through the whole thing!
This is later last night.
I think she was in shock at first, then numb, because she kept saying it didn't hurt.
But when she was getting ready for bed last night, she finally complained that her teeth hurt.
