I posted in December about when Riley took a nasty fall and hit her head on the coffee table. It has been nearly 2 months since it has happened, and it still feels like it was yesterday!! She's gotten a little better about not running through the house, but still has her moments.
The same night the sterri strips were removed and she was allowed to shower again (a week after the injury), she had swelling and then bruising, pictured below. It was horrible. I cried and cried.The plstic surgeon that took care of her in the ER wasn't worried, said that she must have bumped it at some point and if it continued to worsen to bring her in. Which it didn't, within a few days the bruise started to ligthen.
Now, her scar is looking better but she still has a bit of a bruise on her eyelid. I'm not sure if I should still be worried about it or not. She had her 2 year check up this past Friday and the nurse and pedi didn't mention being worried about it. So I guess, I shouldn't. LOL

it just kinda looks like the scar darkened.. it doesnt seem like a bruise, you should maybe just take her in and ask if it's still bruised or if it'll go away or what can you do to help it =/
