Terrible-Riffic Thursday: ER Visit and Bowling

So yesterday went pretty well for me, today not so good.

After mommy went to work this morning I had a slight mishap that landed me in the Emergency Room. It seems like my daredevil ways did not go down too well and I ended up having a huge knot on my head and a cut right above my eye. I have to remember jumping off the bed is not a good thing. That's what my trampoline is for.

Waiting on my doc to see me

I hate going to the ER and so does mommy but she was kind enough to meet me and daddy there. ER visits usually take all day and nobody has time for that!

While in my room I thought that it would be a good idea to have a look around my room. As if my antics that morning wasn't bad enough I thought that it would be great getting up on stool that was available to see if the tap in the sink worked. Thank goodness mommy and daddy was there because who knows what would have happened if they weren't. They helped me on the stool and boy did that water feel good on my hand.

The doctor finally came and after hearing everything that happened took a look at my eye and declared that it wasn't that bad and decided that instead of sutures that they would go ahead and glue the cut on my eye back together. After a quick fix with their magic glue my eye was all better. Mommy and daddy are supposed to keep it dry and clean for me since I can't do it by myself and to use sunscreen whenever I go outside. It's a good thing I already do. My nice doctor said that I may have a scar but if I do I'll have this amazing story to tell.

That's a lot of people helping me get glued back together
As for my knot on my forehead they said that because I didn't fall from too far a distance and I wasn't throwing up they thought that I was ok and there was no need for a CT Scan. They did give mommy signs to look out for within the next 24 hrs after a head injury such as repeated vomiting, severe headaches (not sure how mommy will be able to tell if I have a headache but I'm sure she'll know something), change in my behavior or speech, convulsions, increasing scalp or facial swelling, redness, warmth or pus from the swollen area and fluid drainage or bleeding form the nose or ears. If any of those happen I'm supposed to return IMMEDIATELY to the ER. Since I was such a good patient I got a Pedialyte pop. Guess ER visits aren't so bad after all.

Eye looks a lot better and I got a popsicle for being good
Well my day didn't end there. Instead of getting worse it got infinitely better. I got to go bowling. Yay me! I've never gone bowling before and mommy's FRG (Family Readiness Group) hosted their monthly meeting at the bowling alley. Since I didn't know how to bowl because I'm too little I got to watch others bowl. I did have fun though. Being the youngest at the bowling alley does have its pros. Everyone lets me run around and say how cute I am doing it. That really makes me feel special. Here's to being the baby!

They were too heavy for me! 
I hope everyone had a great day today. Its Friday tomorrow and I can't wait to see what adventure awaits me tomorrow.

  1. Glad that you are feeling better maddie

    1. Thank you! I am feeling a lot better. ♥ Madison

  2. Awwww Madison! I'm really happy you're Ok! You know, your mommy can attest to this and I'm sure you're gonna hear this alot growing up...there's a saying from back home that goes 'Who don't hear does feel'.... It basically means if you don't listen when someone gives you good advice, then you'll learn the hard way by feeling the pain etc when you learn yourself. Make sure you listen toyour mom and dad because they love you and will never tell you anything to hurt you! Ok? Love you to bits so be safe and hope you have a great weekend with mommy!

    1. Thank you Kurl-Ann. You made mommy's day today. She busted out laughing when she read your post because she said she heard that a lot of times growing up. Seems like mommy must have been very much like me growing up. Guess she can't complain too much about me now then. We have a 3 day weekend starting today so we're going to enjoy it. Love you too. ♥ Madison

  3. Love the blog and how you speak in Madison's voice. Glad she's better. I remember those days. Also, love the pic of Madison's room in another post. So cute! Stopping by for a visit from Make It or Fix It Yourself! Stop by if you get a chance.

    1. Hi Sharon, thank you from Mommy. Mommy says there will be quite a few ER visits in my future but we're hoping for no long visits. Seems like my room has been one of my more popular posts, thank you. We stopped by Make It or Fix It Yourself and we loved your ideas. Especially your homemade dishwasher detergent. We will definitely be making that. Seems like we're already a fan on FB as well so will be definitely be checking out your page for more great ideas a lot more regularly. ♥ Madison

  4. My youngest fell off the bed at about the same age. Luckily no stitches, but a very long day at the ER :)

    1. Ouch! Don't you just hate those long visits at the ER? Happy that things worked out for you as it did for us. We're so looking forward to some more of your healthy yummy recipes. ♥ Madison

  5. I hate going to the er, with three we have had our fair share! Hopefully you will only be there few and far between, although Madison seems to have her own agenda!

    1. So you know where mommy is coming from when she says she hates it there. Hopefully it will be few and far between. As for my agenda, its all about having fun but mommy can be such a party pooper at times. ♥ Madison

  6. I love the glue, my son had to have stitches the first time he cut his head open, but when he re-opened they used the glue and it was much less tramatic for him, Hope she is feeling better and healing well

  7. Hi Lacie, I sure am feeling better. No sooner did I get home than I started jumping around again. We're all hoping for just a little scar and nothing too big to spoil my good looks. Yeah I'm kinda vain. :) ♥ Madison
