Re: Did I break my kid's nose?!
My first grader technically broke her nose walking into a glass door on a field trip. The school nurse called me because it swelled and got black and blue very quickly. It never bled. I say technically broken because it's very hard for a child to break the actual bone in the nose. I took her in for x-rays. She had broken cartilage and was ordered to rest for the remainder of the day and then see an ent specialist to make sure it didn't require surgery. We went, the ent said it would heal fine on it's own and it did.
