Ok this is new for me. I was taking Ty out of his bath and got his elbow on the door (tub has glass shower doors, weird I know). Drying him off I found I got him pretty good and he had a pretty bad cut bleeding wicked bad. The cut wasn't bad enough to warrant stitches though, but a couple band aids, yes cuz of the bleeding. Anyway, he is favoring that arm and I noticed it's starting to swell. He couldn't have broken something, could he? I feel so freaking bad!! Ugh I hate those stupid doors! Should i take him to urgent care?

Swelling where, at the cut site?

The whole elbow and more below the cut. If it was just the cut I could understand that, you know? But I'm just nervous cuz all of his elbow and some of his lower seem are starting to swell. And I forgot to mention there is a bruise just above the elbow already and this just happen an hour and 45 minutes ago.

If it's really swelling then yes, I'd take him to have it looked at.

It went down a lot. So I think he's ok. Just cut and bruised :(
