my daughter has had so many things happen to her. she split open her forhead but only had to have it glued. then once i was closing the dishwasher and she put her face right next to it and the lid closed and smacked her in the face and split her lip which was fine. but the worse thing that ever happend was my brothers dog bit her face when she was staying the weekend at my parents. when i got to the ER i saw her face all bloody and swelled and it about killed me. i was such a mess. she didnt even want me cuz i was freaking her out. she only wanted my husband because he could keep it together. it still makes me cry when i think about it. but now when i look at her scars i know they wont be as bad in a few years so that makes me not feel as bad. but accidents happen to everyone

hey, don't worry about it. i know that's easier said then done. but he's a boy & that stuff does happen. you can't protect them 100% of the time although we all try to. my daughter was 1 1/2 yrs old when she fell off the dining room chair & busted her teeth & then eventually had to have her teeth pulled. we were right there next to her & it happend. but he's learning to ride a bike, he's going to get plenty more scratches. hope i don't sound mean or anything... just saying that it's the same as if we fell off our bike & had to get stitches. but hope he's feeling better. & hope you are too.

My son busted open his lip from falling and hitting our coffee table. When he opened his mouth blood poured out I was a nervous wreck! luckily he didnt need stitches but like 6 Popsicles later the bleeding had completely stopped and he felt much better but had a nice fat lip.
