My 2 1/2 year old was playing calmly with her friend while her friend's mother and I sat in the other room. All of a sudden we heard some toys fall and my daughter started crying. I ran in to check on her and she was just standing there with blood running out of her mouth. I panicked and started trying to figure out what had happened and where the blood was coming from. It wound up being from the inside of her upper lip (thank goodness). The bleeding stopped within a minute or two but the top lip is lacerated and very swollen. She has not eaten or had anything to drink in the past 26 hours despite wanting to, asking for food and drink and just crying in front of it. She won't bring anything to her lips to even try. We tried using a spoon, straw, dropper, anything and everything we could think of. This morning she vomited (just stomach acid as she had nothing in her system) so I brought her right in to the Dr. He said she probably contracted a stomach bug and it is displaying itself at the same time as her swollen lip. Having spent every waking hr with dd and seeing her behavior when she has a stomach bug, I know that's not what's going on. I don't know what to do for her to help her drink or eat. I don't want her to wind up in the hospital hooked up to an IV because of a busted lip Has anyone encountered a similar situation with their child? Anyone have any advice? Thanks so much!
