A Trip to the ER...


Well, we finally had our first visit to the ER with Colin last night. Here's the story...

Daddy came home and Colin was not listening when Daddy said not to do something, so he put him on his bed for a time out and shut the door. I was making dinner, and the reason for the door being shut was to protect me from flying toys being thrown by Colin. Not a minute later, we heard a thud and a scream... He fell out of his bunk bed onto his head...

We got an ice pack on it right away, and called the doctor. They asked some questions about it, and told us he needed to be seen right away.

We got to the ER, where Colin screamed bloody murder while his temp and blood pressure were being taken. We then walked through the main ER, full of people very bad off. After a wait, of course, the doctor came in to see us.

By then, Colin was chatty and more like normal. (On the way to the ER he was quiet, kept trying to go to sleep, and his pupils weren't doing normal things.) After checking his pupil reactions and having Colin perform tasks such as touching his nose, we were released with no further treatment.

We were exhausted by the time we got home. And now I'm back to getting ready for our trip! What a week for this to happen!
