A Hard Lesson

Caleb can now stand to go potty (depending on the height of the toilet).  About a week and 1/2 ago, we heard a howling from the bathroom.  Matt rushed in to see what was the matter and started doing that half laughing, half pitying sound.  I walked in and found a very pitiful, sobbing little boy.  After a little research, we realized that he had slammed the toilet seat down on a very sensitive area.  OW!

We put an ice pack on it (which we disinfected!!) and calmed him down.  It turned raspberry red pretty quickly, then darkened to a nasty purple color.  Thankfully, it didn't hurt him to go potty, which was our biggest concern. 

A week and 1/2 later, he seems good as new.  Poor guy...he has had so many issues with that area of his body!  I am thankful that it didn't cause any damage, because I don't think he would be too happy to be examined there again!
