I have just got back from the ER. Audrey was mucking around on the couches, like I have asked her not to do about a million times, she jumped towards me and hit her legs on the front of the couch and I guess her head on the arm. Next thing I know she fell over backwards, her head landed in the bottom shelf of the bookshelf, I grabbed her hand to help her up but she was rigid and her eyes rolled back. I picked her up and she was out of it. That was it, boys packed up, everyone in the car. I was shaking so much and could barely think straight, all the literature tells you that if you knock your head the signs to watch out for are vomiting, drowsiness and seizing, I thought we had gone right to the worst case scenario. I have never been so scared I was going to lose one of them, Sam had a febrile convulsion when he was younger but I knew it was from the fever .
Luckily we got in quickly at the ER, it was obviously earlier enough on a Friday. The Dr seems to think she had a fainting episode not an actual seizure. She was dopey for about 10 minutes but then perked up. She didn't bite her tongue, she didn't wet herself and she wasn't as tired as she should have been for a seizure. So I guess fainting is the best option, I have never been so happy to over react. She is over it, I am not entirely, she is back to jumping off the couch but my nerves are shot, I just want to put her to bed so I don't have to worry about her bumping her precious head again. But I would need to strap her down she is not one to be deterred.
