Being a mommy to a toddler is definitely more challenging. They just walk around like Energizer Bunny and try to grab everything they can. MasyaAllah.. and Bella is one of them too. I’m not complaining. I’m very happy she’s healthy and active but I’m just worried about her safety.
Last night, when we were out of the house, she tripped herself on a carpet and accidentally bang her forehead on to the corner of the wooden table. My heart skipped 2 beats. She cried and I immediately checked her face making sure there was not cut or bleeding area.
While I was doing my “tu ku takal muka pintu, fuh.. fuh..” charm on her forehead..
(hahha, yes I know it’s against medical ethics but Bella loves it when she’s faking her cries!! Hehe..) This time it doesnt work! I know it is something serious! Then I saw a benjol spot emerging from her forehead.. I ran to her daddy.. “Bella jatuh.. Benjol!! What to do??” *insert panic tone here*
~ in my defense, she never had benjol before, this is my first time, panic lar sket kan..
Then her daddy checked her forehead, “Go get ice cubes..”
“Owhh.. I forgot they taught that in orthopaedic before.. Silly me..” Hehehe…
And today, no more benjol spot on her forehead
So mommies, our take home message today.. Immediate benjol management is to put ice cubes immediately before further damage happens to the soft tissue and vessels underneath the skin
