Poor baby

Well, in five years of parenting, we have our first ER worthy injury! Poor Aisling. We were gardening on Saturday evening. She leaned down to use her little toy rake, and she leaned right into a dead branch of a plant. It poked her right in the eye. Oh the poor thing! It was very nerve racking. She was crying red bloody tears. We called the on call doctor, but when he was taking too long to call back, I went to the ER. Thankfully, she was fine. By the time we got to the ER she was running around, seemingly no worse for the wear. She has a broken blood vessel and a scratch on her eye. Thankfully it is not on her cornea, and she should be fine within three weeks. It looks nasty, but apparently doesn't really bother her. She has some cream to put on it for a week, to keep out infection. Sorry for the gory picture, she wouldn't keep her eye open!
