Visit to the ER

Yes it's true
Last Thursday we had our 1st ER visit.
Poor little P had a fall and as the Mr. says...
'It was like a football player' head-bang into the laundry basket.
She thinks she can stand up an walk.
Truth...we aren't there yet.

I wasn't home at the time
thank goodness cause apparently there was a lot of blood.
(I would love to be in the medical field but can't handle blood)

I was surprisingly very calm through the incident
We headed to the Urgent Care
but then she was falling asleep on us.
Scared us silly so we made a U-turn for the ER.
Flashers on and speeding.

End of the day we learned...
- it's okay for her to fall asleep
(apparently not a big deal for a kid who falls on the head to fall asleep?? so the nurse said)
 - children under 2 don't get CT scans unless they hit concrete or another very hard surface
(not a laundry basket)
- after a gross puke in the ER
(note: ran out of the house no diaper bag = very smelling and messy baby and daddy = embarrassed mama)
- they sent us on our way with Tylenol and Neosporin.

Our first 'over reacting' parenting experience.
But I'm okay with that, better safe than sorry.
Parker is such a sport, she makes it hard to tell when she isn't feeling well.

  1. Sorry to hear about the ER visit, I hope everything went well. I know what it feels like to have a child in the ER and be the worrying parent. You feel really helpless and just want things to be back to normal. Such a difficult path to walk, thankfully things will look up soon, I have faith in that.
