This is what a Blowout Fracture looks like (See the broken white line on the right side of the image - under the eye socket?) I'm showing you this image since Puck would not let me photograph him in any manner.
So, yeah. Puck broke his face this week. His injury is not nearly as severe as the one up above, as a matter of fact, he requires no surgery or pins. However, if he blows his nose, the skin underneath his eye blows up like a balloon the size of a golfball. All together now, ewwwww!
He was swimming at a friends house and he was at the bottom of the deep end of the pool. He pushed off the bottom and shot out of the water, right underneath the diving board. Guess where he hit his face?
Yep. There's six hours in the ER right there. I was so freaked out, I forgot my knitting.
I hope he feels better soon.
Now that all the very scary stuff has subsided and you've lost 6 hours in the ER for stuff that took 45 minutes tops - I do hope that you are documenting this properly because when you tell this story to his kids, they're gonna want video.
