We just returned from a trip to the ER with A. She was babysitting for an adorable 5 year old, when she decided to go to the local park to play with her. She attempted a maneuver that she used to do with ease (slipping down through two monkey bars with her whole body.) She didn't squeeze through quite as gracefully as she used to, and smacked her head on one of the monkey bars. She saw stars, felt nauseous and sleepy immediately. Does she stop playing and go get help? No! She kept playing, finished babysitting and came home. When I arrived home an hour later, she told me about the episode. Being the anxiety ridden mother that I am, I drove her immediately to the ER. Two hours later, we were on our way home with a diagnosis of mild concussion with a small area in the back of her head that had to be glued shut. I'll have to wake her a few times tonight, but aside from that I will rest easier knowing she's really okay!
