Sam's ER visit

Well Friday morning matt and I heard this horrible sound coming from sams room. It was him flipping over the rail on his bed onto his head on our hardwood floors. It was the worst sound I've ever heard. We Checked him over, no knots or anything. So I go to the store and come back and matt tells me that he cannot keep Sam awake. This is like 930 am! I start freaking out. We try to get him to walk to me across the room. He gets to me after walking extremely slow and he falls to the ground. I pick him up and as I stand he vomits all over the place. I immediately put him in the car and head to the ER. The car ride there was a nightmare. We get right in thank God and they immediately do a CT scan. It looks great, no cracks or bleeds. He vomitted one more time so we stayed for about 4 more hours so they could monitor him. Basically he had a really bad concussion, and I'm still on pins and needles. I didn't want to even post on fb bc I am still freaked out. It was the scariset thing that has ever happened and I am so thankful he is ok. Just wanted u all to know my horrible day but that my sweet Sam is ok.By far the scariest day of my life and probably the worst to date. I feel beside myself. Watching him in that ct machine terrified and still out of it! Having him fall into m arms bc he could stand up. Matt and I both were puked on and that sound of your baby vomiting is the worst! We still won't let him out of our sight! Last night we told him the floor was water and the couch was the ship!!! He is still of kilter but getting better!!!

That is so scary! I'm glad they got him in quick, and that he should be okay.

I remember when my brother got a concussion when we were playing at a playground- can't remember what did it originally, but then he went to go down one of those fieman poles, and he just fell right off the platform without holding the pole! Freaked me right out!

Man Jessi, that is just AWFUL! SadSadSad Poor Sam - and how incredibly terrifying for you guys.. I'd have been a mess!!

I'm so glad that it was 'only' a concussion (!)... and I hope that Sam is back to his regular self really soon. The good news is that at this age, they do have an amazing capacity to heal themselves quickly, so I bet he'll shock you with how fast he bounces back.

I've lived through something similar..and 40 years later it still brings back those horrible feelings. Meanwhile, my son has no recollections at all of the dreadful event.

I'm sure these things happen to more people than we care to know...

Big hugs to you both and to Sam too of course!!

OMG girl, that is so scary. I would have been totally freaking just like you. I've head concussions before, but it was from cheerleading in HS. I can't imagine having one at 2! So scary. I hope he's on the mend and back to his old self soon!!!
