:welcome  Not sure what to tell you about the swelling . pictures will help there is an emergency  thread but I've not used it . so can't tell how to get there but someone will tell you how . keep a close eye on it . have you checked for injury . a small cut can get infected and become a big problem. look for that. good luck with her  

be careful who you trust  believe me   just as sure as you do  the ones you trust the most might. make a fool of you  the road you travel on my be filled with  ruts and holes  careful where you place your feet you might fall and bust your nose .

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
