I called Gavin down for lunch and he was not using his right hand. I asked him what was wrong and he showed me this.
He says he was swinging his arms around and hit the corner of his dresser. That much I believe. However, the why is what’s in question. He had a huge meltdown this morning and I never looked at his hand after the meltdown.
He says it had nothing to do with the meltdown and happened much later. It looks like his hand was slammed in a car door, doesn’t it. However, the bruises actually line up with his dresser and I know it wasn’t slammed in the car door.
I don’t know why he would do this to himself. Sensory, anger or maybe it was an accident.
I suppose it doesn’t really matter at this point. No we have to decide whether or not to take him in to get it checked out. So much for our slow day today.

Being a clutz, I can tell you that I have done that several times and it hurts a LOT. However, as for getting it checked, I have been told not to worry unless the bruising starts to come up on your palm as well.
Doesnt look like it needs to get checked out unless you want it to or it begins to swell
That does look like it was shut in a dresser and yanked out. The scrapes reaching toward the fingers make it look like it was yanked, probably initial reaction from shutting it in the drawer.
