I have blogged before about my hair falling out. I knew it was annoying, but didn't think it would cause harm to one of my kids. I was changing Emma's diaper this morning and happened to see her toes (she was wearing footed pants) and there was a hair TIGHTLY wound on two of her toes and then together. I tried to cut it off myself, but her toes were so swollen and the hair was tight, there was no way I was going to get it off. So I called Seth and told him what was going on and he said he would come home. I called the doctor's office while he was coming home to see what I should do and they just told me to bring her in. Seth tried to get it off, but her toes were cut on underneath from the hair, we decided it would be better for the doctor's office to get it off. Thankfully Seth was able to stay with Macy and Charlie and Emma and I hurried to the doctor. They worked at it for a little bit and the nurse was 95% sure she got it all off. They said the swelling should go down later today. Here is a picture a while after coming home from the doctor's, can you guess which two toes they were?
So now I feel horrible, she had fussed a little bit earlier this morning when I touched her foot before I knew what had happened, and I thought maybe I had pinched her or something. The hair has had to be wrapped on her toes for at least a few hours. The nurse tried to make me feel better and said this happens alot and that it looked like I caught it relatively early. Sorry Emma!
