View Full Version : My little boy hurt himself...
This afternoon, I brought DS home and we went to get the mail. We have 4 cobblestone steps up to the mailbox and more cobblestones along the bottom.
DS and I went up the stairs and as I was pointing out something to him, he lost his footing and fell over backwards down the stairs (head first :eek: )
I spun around and he was just landing on the bottom and his head hit the paving.
He burst into tears and I raced him inside to check him out only to find blood all over his shirt and the back of his head. He was still crying and saying his head hurt and when I got a wet cloth and cleaned his head up, saw that the cut was quite small (just bleeding a lot).
He is good now. No bump at all, the bleeding has stopped and he is his normal happy self (although I have kept him up later just to keep an eye on him).
Poor little darling. It's so terrifying when your little one hurts themselves:crying:
oh no, poor little thing.
I'm glad he is ok now.
How frightening for you as well.
Oh it happens so quick doesn't it? But it also seems to happen in slow motion when you're watching it I reckon.
I'm glad he's okay and I agree, it is terrifying when they hurt themselves. My 2 year old choked on a 5c coin yesterday and I just panicked and kept hitting him on the back and he ended up regurgitating it into the kitchen sink. Weird thing is, he never puts anything in his mouth and his older brother has had a number of dreams that his little brother has swallowed something. He was in the bedroom with him when he did it and the look of terror and horror on his face because his brother HAD swallowed something is etched in my mind.
Sorry, hijack. Just wanted to let you know I understand how YOU feel!!
aaaw RM, poor little Ryno :hugs: I am glad that al is well and that it was a small cut. Head injuries are so scary though. I actually had a nightmare a few weeks about E falling on her head and having concussion. Luckily kids are pretty tough and dont fall as hard as us old cronies (oops there goes a hip).. erm, I mean adults do. I hope you both feel better now:hugs: :hugs: :hugs:
How frightening for him, how frightening for Mummy....:hugs: glad to hear no permanent damage done!
Do you have any icecream in the house - it works wonders sometimes....along with Mummy cuddles.
Poor little fellow!!! I hope both you and him have recovered. It is funny how we love our children so much that when they are hurt - we are hurt, when they feel sick - we feel sick. It is an entirely different and completely unconditional love that I have never felt before.
poor little ryno! Glad he is better now. :hugs:
Oh, poor little poppet! And how scary for you RM!!
Here's a hug for beautiful brave Ry :hugs:
And a hug for his beautiful mum too :hugs:
Oh no, poor little ryan.
I agree kids bounce back pretty well. Jake has had quite a few falls that have left bumps and bruises. Nothing some cuddles couldnt fix though.
Its the poor mums that are still shaken up for hours afterwards.
For me, there is nothing more heartbreaking than seeing my little man cry:crying:
i feel bad because i dont even worry too much these days when DS hurts himself. i do care but i dont get upset as i used to. its not that i am heartless its just that he hurts himself (Sometimes deliberatly) so often that i know how resiliant he is and that most of the time the screaming and crying is just noise. does that make me a bad mother?
sorry to hear about your DS, sounds like a bad fall. glad to hear it wasnt serious. :smiliedance:
poor little man, head injuries are awful, spesh when you see lots of blood coming out.
glad he didnt require any stitches rm. once hes in bed, sit back and relax with a nice glass of vino :hugs:
Oops I spoke to soon. I have just given him a bath and found that the little cut is still seeping out some blood (not enough for a stitch I wouldn't imagine but enough to make a sticky wet trickle down the back of his head). No drips, just a line of wet sticky blood - the accident happened about 2 hours ago. I had put paw-paw ointment on it earlier as I know head cuts seem to bleed quite a bit.
What should I use to try and stop the bleeding?
I hope it all stopped bleeding for you :hugs:
It's so terrifying when your little one hurts themselves
Ain't it just!!!:(
I am glad to here your little man is doing better!!!
:hugs: Give him a bighug from me:hugs:
Oh RM, poor little Ryno... I'll bet you both got the fright of your lives... am glad all he is okay, ice cream for him, straight whisky for mum.
Big hugs to you both :hugs: .
oh RM ... how fast did your heart beat!! gee wizz!!
scary!! I'm SO glad that Ry is ok .... stairs are yucky ... (just ask lukaelmo ... ) ..
BIG hugs to you and your little man :hugs: :hugs:
ETA - RM .. I"m a girl .. I would be going to the hosp or an open GP and getting them to butterfly clip it/ glue it .. I"m not good with blood .. and I'm a big sissy when Jack is upset ..
Thanks everyone for your hugs and advice.
Vevie, the hospital will laugh at me now if I take him in. The cut is really quite small, it's just quite annoyingly weepy. I've cleaned it up and put more paw paw on on it ('tis all I have) and it's stopped again. He wants a band-aid:laughing: bless him, but I don't think he'd like me taking it off later.:no:
DH is away (of course). All of that blood is very scary but surprisingly when it is your bubba, you run a little on adrenaline (and mummy cuddles).
He is in bed now - I will check on him in an hour.
Ohhh...and thanks LE for responding - watch that 202 won't you?:p
Oh!.. the poor wee cherub!!
I hope he feels much better now with the mummy kisses and stuff :hugs:
Hope you feel better too!!
Poor Ry and poor Mummy :hugs:
Glad to hear he is ok after all.. i was in hospital tonight with Ethan (another story :rolleyes: ) and there was a little boy there 22 mths getting stitches in his head as a platter had fallen from the top of the pantry onto his 'noggin !! I tell you, that was a lot of blood :eek:
Ohhh...and thanks LE for responding - watch that 202 won't you?
:laughing: :laughing: :laughing:
I hope he sleeps well lovely RM .. (you too) .. least you have the WHOLE bed (no blanket stealing DH) if Ry wants to snuggle up to mum after his big fall ...
Ohh the poor little guy! :hugs: to you both!
:hugs: It is scary when they hurt themselves isnt it :(
Hope he's ok this morning and that the bleeding finally stopped :fingerscrossed:
