My sister got her first big "boo-boo" today about an 2 hours ago. Me, my mom, my bro and sis were at a school playground playing. It was time to go, so my mom says my siblings can have one more go at the slide. Jaclyn instantly starts running to go up the stairs of the play structure to go one last time. But, as Jaclyn was coming to the top, she tripped and wacked her forehead right were on the corner of the top step. WHAM. She starts crying, this time louder than usual. As i am walking over to her to see what was wrong, she looks up and blood is gushing from her forehead. Now, any injury to the head will cause more blood loss than usual. Because of all the blood, we could not tell how big the cut was.
Now, it just so happens that there was a Fire Department building right across the road. Sooo...my mom grabs Jaclyn and hurries over there as fast as she dared. Fortunately, there were two firemen there and they quickly attended to Jaclyn. Jaclyn, after the initial crying was very quiet and calm(probably helped that my mom was also very composed). After a few minutes, the firemen determined that the cut was not deep enough nor big enough to require any stitches or anything like that. After about 15 min-20 min. we decided not to go to the hospital(it was a head wound), and just to go home. After we got there i took some pics. and Jaclyn even smiled a bit.
The pic. on the top left, the little dark spot on her forehead is the cut. the people in the pic. top right, are my grandma,mom,and Jaclyn,that red stuff on my mom's arm is NOT juice(what do you think it is), and then Jaclyn is looking in the mirror.
