Yeah, bath-/dianne, ice is good for bruising. I'm a former med tech in the military. It should help the swelling go down.
About me, right now, I'm a mom of two (girl and boy, 14 & 9) Known affectionately around here as Thing 1 & Thing 2. I'm also a full-time student. Working on my masters in counseling, which I hope to be done with (Lord-willing) this fall.
As for the avatar thing, there's a thread about that around here. Let me look it up for you. Be right back!
