Busted Lip

Thursday afternoon, Ross' mom, Susan, came to town to take care of the kiddos while Ross and I are in Prague for a week. Ross and Susan went to the daycare together to pick up Jackson and Audrey. Apparently, Jackson was a little excited and tripped on his way to push a button on the keypad where we log them in and out each day. He was running full force and hit face first on the corner of the desk/counter. He hit hard enough that he has a scratch/line that runs from his from his forehead to his chin. He busted his lip wide open and even managed to loosen a tooth. Check it out...

You can tell from the picture that his gums and lip were both bleeding. Ross and Susan decided to take him to the doctor to make sure he didn't need stitches. Fortunately, he didn't, but he does have to go to the dentist about the tooth. Our pediatrician said there's a possibility it will turn grey. It's about the right time for him to make a trip to the dentist, but this wasn't exactly the reason I had in mind. The poor fella is having trouble eating because it hurts, but his Grandmother and Aunt Leslie and cousin Mitchell are taking extra good care of him this weekend!
