Bruise: Injury was on her arm and bruise is noted on the elbow?? Is she able to move the elbow and shoulder well? If she is not tender, moving her arm and elbow well then no need to worry. Occasionally bruise is not noted at the site of the injury but away from it. Please closely observe and get her seen if things do not improve.
