another injury!!

it was almost lunch hour when my phone rang. the caller ID showed it was Ziyi's school principal, Jeslyn. i am always very afraid of receiving calls from her caretaker/teacher, worrying if something might have happened to her. 

i got a rude shock when i answered the call. Jeslyn told me ziyi had an injury in school! she was walking from her seat to the front of the class and suddenly she lost balance and fell! she knocked herself on the edge of the table and she got a cut on her eyelid. obviously, along with the cut was a bruised eye too! she did cry for a while but was back to her active self again. 

i immediately called my father in law to go to the kindy to check on her. ziyi was alright at that time and they took her home to rest. thank God the inside of her eyes was not injured. to play safe, i brought her to the paediatrician the next morning and she was prescribed with an antibiotic ointment to prevent further infection. her doctor wanted to prescribe her with oral antibiotic too but i declined. i don't think she needed it since it was just external injury and i am not too keen on her taking so much oral antibiotics. 

ziyi has always been very clumsy. what's more with her hyperactive character and behavior. she hurt herself always everyday eversince she was a baby when she first learned to crawl and sit. 

on a side note, i caught her reading her book this way! so "tahn"!! 
oh my....i wonder where did she learn this from. sucha bad bad habit.

oh dear.. it does happen to most preschoolers.
Apply vit E (direct from capsule) to the wound when it dries up. this speeds up healing and lessen scars.
