My Brave Girl

On Saturday, I had just finished the after dinner cleanup when my mom called. "(ODD), tore her eyelid on a cup hook, (one of those little metal hooks used to hang teacups; this one was used for a curtain tieback), we're bringing her to the ER, (right across the street from my apartment), meet us there with her insurance cards.
DH and I took LO and furbaby to our neighbor's and meet my mom and stepdad at the ER. Ladies, I was not prepared for what I saw, my kid's right upper eyelid was torn from inside corner to about halfway across, all the way through.
Our local ER transferred her to Harborview in Seattle, because they felt she needed a trauma center. Harborview admitted her because she needed surgery because the tear duct system was involved.
Through all this, DD remained strong. I was really proud of her.

Poor thing.  Hope Harborview took good care of her!  You mostly only hear of them treating gunshots and victims of violence on the news.  One of our friends did his residency at the ER there.
