Spent Most Of My Birthday At Hosptial

It was my birthday on Saturday and although we did have plans to go out, my niece ended up going to A&E due to trapping her fingers badly in the door. As she is only 2 years old we were all worried as her fingers are small and delicate, but thankfully she just needed paper stitches and it wasn't that serious. The poor thing was in shock and understandably her parents were so upset seeing her loose all that blood. The best birthday present I got was that my niece was not badly hurt and is recovering okay.

Oh, not a good feeling.The baby might have cried so hard from pain.I think that accident was unintentional and no one should be blamed. I want to greet you a very happy birthday my friend.HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Oh, sorry to hear that news. That's really painful one knowing that she's only two years old. I have experienced same thing when i was a child but not that too young as she is. Good thing it's not that so serious. Hopefully she will recover fully very fast. Belated happy birthday to you.

Thank you. It is always hard seeing someone so young suffer like that, but she coped well despite all the blood.

Sorry that your birthday was spoiled, but I'm happy that your niece wasn't seriously hurt. Paper stitches? What are they?

I am not exactly sure but they are like small tape that stitch the wound together. not proper stitches, which is could as they would have added to her pain.

Seeing the blood is what is so traumatizing. Small cuts sure can look a lot worse with all the blood.

@salonga It was worrying at first as she is only a little girl who loves playing and moving around so was not sure if the wound would heal properly.

True, my sister in law was crying which probably did not help the little ones.

Awww, the poor baby. I imagine it hurt pretty bad and as a parent, it's always hard to listen to them cry in pain. I'm glad that it wasn't serious.
