resting comfortably.

& he will continue to do so for the next two hours, until i wake him up... because, when you have a concussion, that's what you do.

as for me, i'm drained. sitting in the ER for several hours wondering if your little boy is going to be okay, does that to you. luckily, one terrifying ct scan later, everything has been checked, & little o is officially on the mend. but watching your little boy run, trip, fall, hit his head, lose consciousness, go into convulsions, calling 911 for the first time in your life, & then rushing the little guy to the ER... that's enough to make anyone tired. so i'm going to bed. but i'll be up in two hours, if anyone wants to chat.

With tears in my eyes, I picked up the phone to call and see if everything is OK - then looked at the clock and realized it is 3:53 a.m. Figured you wouldn't appreciate the concern. I hope all is truly OK. I'll talk to you later.
Hugs - Aunt Chris

oh my goodness! Times like that are scary. I remember the first time I had to call 911 - it was for my husband - but I was scared to death.

And the first time my little one had to be admitted to the hospital with pneumonia - scared to death again!

Hope things are better today!
