It doesn't look that bad in the picture, but when it first happened, it was pretty gaped open. We made the decision to head back to the area and go to our local ER (an hour away). (there is no local hospital there, so there wasn't a whole lot of choices)
We hit major traffic, so he took another photo of it to show me how it looked in the back seat.
When we got to the ER and signed in, we took this one. After sitting there and not even being triaged for over an hour, we made the decision to go ahead and leave. Once the swelling went down, it was only on his lip, not actually on his face. It had also stopped bleeding and started to dry and scab over. If we would have gone back, they would have messed with it and it would have started bleeding again.
This morning, it was much smaller and looks so much better... I think we made the right decision...
