It was about 10:30pm last night when K and I were getting ready to go to sleep when I heard a thump and then I heard Grace start crying. I figured she fell out of bed and jumped up to go see her. She was sitting in her bed with her back facing me but she wasn't really crying hard. I turned her around and started consoling her but even in the dark with only a night light I could see a dark spot under her eye. So I lightly touched under her eye and felt a hard lump there. Of course that freaked me out! (Especially since Aaron just cut underneath his eye up) Took her into our bathroom and under her eye (same place has Aaron's) she has a huge swelling and bruise already forming. So K and I took her downstairs with an icepack (she was shrieking and freaking out, screaming bloody murder like you think we were taking her downstairs to lock her up or something, just because we had that ice pack) and turned on some Veggie Tales while we iced her eye for about 20 minutes. It helped considerably and the swelling went down, so we came and put her back to bed. 2:20 am comes and I get up with Sarah and 2:40 comes and so does Grace, because she is scared of some shadow. I finish up nursing Sarah and then we put her back to bed and then Grace to bed and then me to bed. Whew!
And so this is her eye this morning.
