Help! Need advice on an injury.

My 28mo old fell about oh, let's say an hour ago off of my computer chair and it looked like he might've just ran over his finger, so I thought nothing serious of t', but now it's pretty swollen and red, and it feels like the knuckle down towards his metacarpals (HAND hand) is swollen and out-of-place. I tried calling the on-post ER here and they told me the usual "blahh blah blah can't give advice over the phone". Should I just bring him in to the Hospital and have him looked at, or wait it out over night and see how or looks tomorrow? Any insight would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Hi Mrs Maples,

I'm so sorry to hear about your son and hope that he is doing okay. Please keep us posted and never hesitate to see your pediatrician or take him to the ER if you are concerned.

Looking forward to hearing back!
