well, pearl decided to be crazy today and wound up in the er.

we were hanging out in our bedroom and she was walking around, holding onto our bed, dresser, you name it. all of a sudden, an outrageously loud CRACK startles me. she was laying flat on the ground, with our huge box fan on her FACE. i didn't think too much of it, until i realized she whacked her head on the sharp edge of our platform bed frame, on her way down. blood started pouring from her tiny nose. WHAT? i know. she didn't calm down and was crying really weird. she seemed lethargic and was in a lot of pain.
i immediately called darc, who was at work, and he said to take her to the urgent care 1 block from our house. they looked at her and sent us to the er because it was a "head injury".
the dr was amazing and prompt. meanwhile, pearl had perked up a bit, enough to show off for the nurse by saying every word she could. he said she looked ok- probably not a broken nose. we are going to watch her and see if she does anything out of the ordinary and see her pediatrician tomorrow for a follow-up.
pearl wound up with a huge goose egg on the back of her head with a deep scratch, a black eye[eye brow], a red swollen upper lip, and her first bloody nose.

P.S.... I was calling the fan a meanine, not you. And the swim suit is too die for!

Glad she's okay. She looks pretty happy in the post-er pic. Maybe she's thinking about getting back into her cute swimmy.
