Subject: [IP] Bruising

Jenna's never had problems with bruising from a site, but here's my educated
guess.  A bruise is caused when blood gets out of the blood vessels into the
tissues around it.  Sometimes, if the leaky blood vessel is deeper than just
under the skin, it may take a few hours before it seeps through the tissues
up toward the skin, where it can be seen.  An example of blood that "seeps"
is when you sprain your knee, and gradually your ankle turns blue, because
gravity caused the blood to "seep" under the skin down to the ankle.  So, I
would guess that you've developed some extra blood vessels in your favorite
areas, you hit them with your sil, and they leak.  Maybe a break to your
favorite areas would help?
