Unexpected

I was planning on posting about Game Boy's trip to Seattle. (He's fine, by the way. Everything is easily remedied.)

I was also planning on posting about the knitting I've finished. (A bath mat and a pair of socks.)

Instead I'm posting about this:The Collar broke his nose. This is right before we went to the ER. (He wanted me to take the pictures--I didn't make him wait. If you click on it, you can see how crooked it is. It hadn't really started swelling yet.

This is a side view from the hospital.
After the ER visit, when he's really started swelling. He was a wee bit spaced out on his pain meds, so please forgive his, um, glassy eyed appearance. Today he's still spaced out (pain relief is good!), and there's swelling, and where the bruising is going to show up.

I'll post more pictures as he decides I should. (I'm sure there will be pictures when his nose is set and splinted.)

Ow! What happened? Or would he rather we didn't know the gory details?

It's on his facebook page. If you friend him you can see it there. He doesn't care if the pictures are here, but the details are a different story.

Well, he'll match Grandpa's nose, now...

That's exactly what I said (Grandpa's nose) after I offered condolences!

What's really funny is I told him his Grandpa would be so proud, even if it wasn't a hockey injury.
