Heidi fell down the stairs... She's absolutely fine, but scary...
I got home from taking the big three kids to school, and there was a note from my husband saying that Heidi had fallen down the stairs, and that they were at the hospital. His truck was still here, so I knew he had taken an ambulance so that worried me more. I called the hospital to double check which one he went to, and I was told that he had just gone through triage and was in the waiting room. When I heard he was in the waiting room, I was able to calm down because I knew it couldn't be that serious. When I got to the hospital, my husband was standing holding her in the hallway, and Heidi could see me. She started smiling, jumping in his arms and waving. Then I completely relaxed because I knew she was fine. She has a big welt on her forehead, and a bruise on her back, but luckily my kids were sloppy this morning, and didn't pick up the jackets that fell on the floor on their way out the door, so she landed on those instead of the concrete floor. The gate at the top of the stairs was closed, but not clicked in quite properly, so when she bum scooted over to the gate, and pushed, it opened and down she went. My husband said he was running as quickly as he could but just couldn't get to her in time.
So in the end, she is fine, we are watching her closely, but it was definitely a scary day.
