This is what happens when a line drive baseball hit meets the cheek of a little boy sitting in outfield!
Thankfully nothing was broken; we were so grateful that it hit his cheek and not his eye or forehead. For the first day he had a VERY swollen/bloated cheek, and each day after that he was our little rainbow boy, with his cheek changing colors from purple, to blue, to yellow…=)
This all happened on the 10th (and pictures were taken then) so now all the swelling and most of the more vibrant coloring is gone and he is just left with a cheek that looks dirty from the varying more muted colors.
Bless his heart…he let me take these pictures on condition that I would take him out to icecream. =)
