Leo and his trip to A&E

Just yesterday I posted about Leo's new found love for the window. This morning upon one of Leo's routine crawls over to said window, my little Lion must of lost his balance and his head met the wall, an introduction that was obviously a little painfull for Leo judging by his sudden cry.

Those views from the lounge window can really be a headache.

Granny was watching Leo while I got changed and ready for the day ahead, but with Leo's new found speed...he quickly got over to the window and gave the wall a welcoming head butt. I quickly got downstairs to find out what had happened and gave Leo all the huggles and love that I could muster. It didn't take long to calm him down with my magic Mummy cuddles, but then a big red lump sprung up on his head.

The lump looked angry and sore so Granny and I decided that it was best to go and get him checked out at our local A&E. Leo was fine in himself and up to his usual mayhem minutes after his little bump, but for my own piece of mind I wanted to get him checked.

So all 3 of us piled into the car and off we went. Upon arrival I explained what had happend and answered all of the routine questions. There was about a 20 minute wait, which gave Leo plenty of time to find people sat around the waiting area to have a little flirt with.

I could see he was fine in himself but I just wanted the lump to be checked out and just to be told that it was nothing to worry about, upon Leo's check up that is exactly what I was told. The nurse felt the lump, checked Leo's eyes and ears...All of course were in good working order!

Leo made the nurse work hard in these checks, he was more interested in playing than having things shone in his eyes and poked into his ears. He was a brave little Lion and did not even flinch when his lump was poked and prodded. The actual check up was under 10 minutes long and then we were on our merry way again.

I think just being told that everything is ok, relaxes you and put's you instantly at ease. We do have to keep an eye on him but other than that Leo is his normal monstourus little self, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I am hoping that this A&E visit is our first and last for a very long time!

When did you first have to take your little one to A&E and what for?

I have heard some horror stories about trips to casualty for the removal of lego from the nose....I only hope I don't ever have to deal with a situation like this!
