I planned Camilla's party for a few weeks, worked on her cake, bought her cupcake tower and dreamed of her having the greatest time of her life.
I also dreamed of having the greatest time of my life knowing I wasn't going to cook or clean my house for her party.
Well, things not always happen the way we want...
The day before her party she fell playing ghost at home. She cut her lower lip, inside and out, by cut I mean she sliced her lip open! blood everywhere,I actually thought she broke all her teeth.
We rushed her to the Children's Hospital emergency room, they took us in immediately and in a matter of minutes the doctors told us that the cut was deep and require stitches.
The cut was where the facial skin meets her lips, it was extremely difficult to match it back up, which can lead to scarring. She also had bruses on her upper gums and a hole inside her lip.
She needed to be strap, sedated on her lip area, etc ahhhhhhhh I felt like I was in a horror movie, the one where you see your baby in the worse pain ever and there is nothing you can do. Yep, that one!
The day of the party I had to bring her in to the doctor again because she was very swollen and I was paranoid of her getting an infection. ( thoughts included her loosing her lip, not having a mouth and anything bad that could come into my mind)
Needless to say, the party was a disaster...she had fun for about 20 minutes and then she cried the entire time,we hold her as much as we could, we knew she was in pain.
If you are asking yourself why we didn't cancel the party, we did think about doing it, but she wanted the party so bad and she would have been heartbroken without her party.
This picture is the best we could do.
Today Cami is feeling better, she is able to actually open her mouth and eat. Stitches are out and we are just waiting for her to heal before Kindergarten starts in a few weeks.
Do you have kids? any accidents before a big event?
