The Eyes Have It

Isaac fell at the park and hit his face on a beam. It was the nastiest facial injury I have ever witnessed in one of my children. Even when he split his lip clear up to his nose and looked like a bunny rabbit until the doctor stitched it up. This kept looking worse instead of better each day, until about day 5. He still has a super ball sized hard spot on his cheek bone. I assume he'll get back to normal some day...

August 28 (Day of injury)

August 29 (morning of Day 2) I almost cried when I saw him.

August 29 (Afternoon of day 2)

August 30 (Day 3) Swelling goes down, color abounds!

August 31 (Day 4)

September 1 (Day 5 self portrait) His eyelid turns purple.

September 2 (Day 6) Finally no new bruising.

September 2

September 4 (Day 8) Bruising starts on lower jaw, or we just notice it because his eye looks better.

Septerber 6 (Day 10)

September 11 (Day 15) The scab is finally gone and he looses a tooth! Life just keeps moving.

September 19 (Day 23)

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my blog. I totally agree with you. God gives us the right thing at the right time.

I am glad your little guy's face has healed so well.

Oh my goodness! Your photos had me holding my breath. Children have an amazing power to heal and your son is so beautiful!!

WOW! I know that head/facial injuries always swell a great deal and that they heal fairly quickly, but that was a doozy of an injury. Praising God that he healed so well.

My 6 year old is currently sporting a beauty of a black eye. Her younger sister hit her with the seat belt buckle. There's always something!.
