"" Three Ladies and a Dad: Not just another knot....

Not just another knot....

So there I was, listening away at my small group for church last night, when the phone rings. I get told the phone was for me, which shocked me because nobody knew the number so I knew it had to be an emergency. Jeremy tells me Zoa hit her head again and they are taking her to the hospital to be checked out. She was at my mom and dad's at the time it happened and they said she was acting extremely "off" and her eyes were dilated. She was having a hard time walking and staying awake. Uh-oh.

The hospital wasn't all that bad. Zoa felt and acted fine once I made it there and Macie did her homework. ER rooms are never fun, but we have had worse experiences there than last night.

Zoa's name was finally called and the doctor came to check her out. Her diagnoses: A Concussion. She thinks that since the symptoms were completely gone 3 hours later, there was not internal damage. (Praise God!) She gave us the option of a CT Scan, but since Zoa would have to be sedated to have it, we opted out of that and are just watching her.

Zoa has always been the child who runs into things, falls, and bumps her head. But I never thought I would have a child who would have a concussion at the age of 2!

Alaina.....poor guys!!! I hate that you had to go through this again!!! Her knots on her head are huge when this happens!!! I feel so bad for her. But who thinks they are going to have a 2 year old get a concussion? I mean that is just crazy!! I hope she is feeling better and yes thank God it was only this and nothing permanent!!!!
