Our first broken bone.....we think!

Almost 2 weeks ago I was trying to get the all the kids and I down for a "family nap" in my room. Whenever we try to do this there is way more noise and giggles than resting. Landon was running around the room like a mad man when he tripped on a stuffed animal and fell right into the box spring of our bed. Blood was gushing and he was crying. I cleaned him up, he cried for about 10 minutes and then laid down and took a nap. When he woke up this is what I saw and I decided to take him into the ER.
Nose day 1
In the ER the doc looked at him for about 60 seconds and told me to try and put ice on it, that he would probably get 2 black eyes, not to worry, and made an appointment for the ENT for 6 days later.

Here he is on Friday.
Nose day 2

On Saturday, the day of our neighborhood 4th of July parade he looked like this.
Nose day 3

This is on Monday, probably the day it looked the worst.Nose day 5

I took him the the ENT last Wednesday and the doctor looked at it, felt it a little bit, and told us that it was probably broken but that it was healing well and looked like it would probably heal straight. A week later and the swelling has gone down. It is still green and he still has black eyes, but they are finally starting to fade some. He has bumped it a couple of times in the past couple of days and it has bled a little. But he started to look like himself and not Rocky Balboa!!

Oh, and if you're wondering why he has blood coming out of his nose....he wouldn't let me touch it. I gave him several baths to try to get the steam to clean it up a bit, but he wouldn't let me go anywhere near it and the doctor said to try not to touch it so that it wouldn't bleed. So he looked a little gross for a few days!!

Wow, that looks like it really hurts. I am all to familiar with kiddos with broken bones. Mostly wrists, arms & hands. I hope he is feeling better:)
