broken nose

Penny called today from the Isle of Palms to say that Mason appears to have broken his nose. He managed to hit it with a folding beach chair as he attempted to swing it over his head to "wear it around his neck."

Penny has talked to the local hospital, and they've decided, based upon Mason's condition, to wait until tomorrow morning to go in.

I talked to him briefly on the phone, and he appeared to be taking like a "big boy." Allie was more upset than Mason, as her empathetic personality surfaced. She sobbed on the phone, worrying about her little brother. Penny says Allie has been doing of good job of playing nurse.

If his nose is indeed broken, this will be the second time for Mason. Penny says this doesn't compare to the first time; he was three when he was hit in the face with a baseball bat by a friend. His nose was noticeably moved on his face (I commented that he looked like a Picasso painting, where the subjects' faces are somewhat distorted), and he quickly had black and blue eyes. But he healed perfectly, as I'm sure he will again.

random. arbitrary. completely unnecessary. yet refreshingly therapeutic.
