Well, he has done it again! Yep! Jacob has broken my nose. Let's think back to the day not so long ago when a similar incident occurred. Hmmm! Oh yeah - it sucked then too!!!!
I was holding my little angel the other night when his big sister decided to come by and tickle him. With a natural reaction and a jerk, he headbutted me right in the face. The kids all thought I was laughing but really I was screaming for the pain was like squeezing a watermelon through my nose. (Haven't I heard that metaphor before?) Anyway, after some confusion, ice packs, Motrin and the kids getting sent to bed, I decided it felt oddly familiar.
So, yesterday I tromped off to the doc and without an x-Ray the doc said, yep it's broke. You gotta got see the surgeon. So, off to the surgeon I went. He started by saying, well you have great bone structure but we need to take a better look. Seriously, what the heck does that mean? Anyway, after a CT scan and some more nose prodding, he told me that it was splintered and that there was some cartilage damage. I have to let it heal the way it is and come back in 6 weeks so they can re-break it again and file it down. Sounds pleasant, doesn't it?
For the time being, I think I will be investing in a lot of make-up. Actually the bruising isn't that bad at all. It just hurts! Uuuggh! When will these incidents end?
