I thought today was a good one, because my few online tasks were paid today and there was another job opportunity offered to me by my regular client. But come late afternoon, when my mom and my two daughters got inside our house to have snacks with me, my daughter Erin girl (we love calling her like that), had an accident right in front of our house. I was asking her how her school was and she just walked away from me and my mom and headed to the door. She said she will play outside with her cousins. In just a few seconds, we heard a loud noise from the outside and my mom hurriedly went outside. There she was on the floor then my mom picked her up and asked what happened to her. And then my mom hurriedly called me as she saw blood dripping down her forehead. I was shocked and I didn’t know what to do (oh I hate blood!). My mom kept on stopping the blood by covering her forehead with her hands. She bumped into our gate, when she forcefully opened it, it swung back at her. My mom told me to get a towel, but with my shivering hand I only grabbed one of her brother’s white shorts and covered up her wounded forehead. Good thing my brothers were at home today and they helped us get a cab to bring her to the nearby clinic. On our way, I called up my husband and told him what happened. He said he will be on his way home. While we were travelling, my daughter kept on crying but I told her that everything will be alright. I told her stories to distract her. Good thing she ride on to my story until we reached the clinic.
The nurse asked what happened and then looked at her wound. It was a small but deep cut according to her and that it has to be stitched. (poor Erin girl). The doctor asked few questions again and then she said to my daughter that it will only hurt a bit. We lay her down to bed and the nurses wrapped her in a blanket just in case she will fight back if the stitching starts. But my brave Erin girl, did not cried a bit, upon injecting the anesthesia up to the actual stitching. Good thing two stitches are enough to stop the bleeding. After that she was given an anti tetanus shot and gave us her medications for pain and infection. She was all up and bubbly again, telling me and my mom to go to Jolibee after that. But we said we will just order by phone because her dress was still stained with blood. Upon returning home, all our relatives and neighbors were there waiting for us. Hubby came in later and hugged her “princess”. To console her they went out and bought her a toy in the nearby toy.
And now, she was fast asleep as I finished some online assignments. I can hear her cry a little and then fall asleep again. I’ll definitely won’t stay up until wee hours (like I used to do) because I want to be with her whenever she cries because for sure, her wound would hurt even as she sleeps.
I hope she will feel better tomorrow.
By the way, it’s not her birthday today, I just grabbed her picture on my other blog just to show you how my princess looks like:)
