Had a bad Day!!!!

Hi there I wish I had some pretty pics for you but I don't. My girl plays hockey and our family has been very busy with that of late. She has been playing alot but on Saturday (yesterday) she had her weekly club game and her team played and she had an awesome game. She scored the only goal in the game and they won!! The team they played beat them the last time they played so it was a big deal. We were so excited for the girls and so proud of them. My girl was then asked to play up for another team and while they were warming up a girl was mucking around with her friend and lifted her stick above her shoulder ina big full force swing and hit my girl in the head. The impact split her right eyebrow in half and left a gaping hole. I totally freaked out, there was so much blood and you could see her skull. I am so proud of my girl she didn't cry she was so so brave, much braver than her Mum. They decided to glue the wound instead of stitching it because the wound should have less of a scar and should heal quicker. I am still very upset and cried for almost an hour last night. I wish we did things a little differently that day but we didn't and now my baby will have a scar for the rest of her life. Sometimes people need to realise that their actions do have an impact on others, this has taught me to listen to my inner voice because I had a bad feeling about her helping the team, which I voiced to my husband on two occasions before this incident happened. We can't change the past only the future so from now on my inner voice is to be listened to at all times. I just hope the scar is not too bad as girls are all about what they look like. To me she will always be beautiful and I love her more than all the stars in the sky!!!!! I refused to take a pic before they patched her up as it was just too horrific. I also didn't want her too see what had happened to her face. She wants to keep playing hockey but I am not so sure about that. I hope to bring you a pic in the future of her beautifully healed face with hardly a scar! Sew you soon Shel x

  1. Babee! She really took one for the team didn't she. Hope little one doesn't scar, but then we all carry scars of one kind or another. Remind me to show you the one on my shin. =-)
