Run-in with a ladder

Travis injured himself at work on Friday...



He was walking through a narrow walkway between open studs, when he slipped on some rebar. He was carrying a ladder that ran into a stud when he lost his balance. The ladder stopped suddenly, but he kept going. That means his eye rammed into one of the ladder rungs.

Travis is okay, but he's got a pretty black eye. Or should I say blue? He's missing some lashes where the cut is. There's a minor abrasion on his cheek His entire eye socket is swollen and purpley-blue.

Today we were jumping in the leaf pile in our yard. At some point, I noticed that Aiden had a red scratch below his right eye. It's in the same place where Travis' abrasion is. They're twinkies.
