My poor baby boy had quite a day yesterday! He's just learning to walk and took one too many tumbles. On the most recent he fell and almost bit through his tongue! We didn't realize how bad it was at first and kept trying to stanch the blood. It stopped after about 10 minutes at first, so an hour or so later I put him down for a nap. However, when he woke up it looked like there had been a murder!
Apparently the wound had reopened and had no intention of closing. I began to be concerned when it wouldn't stop bleeding, but my husband was out with the only vehicle that contains a car seat. He rushed home and we immediately drove to the hospital. They determined it was only his tongue that was injured, but it bled for three hours. The ER doctor eventually used a liquid cauterizing agent to stop the bleeding.
Thankfully all is well, but I have a feeling it's only the beginning!
