E.R.

We had yet another ER visit tonight. I was in Shop Rite picking up a few things for a new recipe I wanted to try for dinner when I received a call from Xander's daycare. I thought it was a little weird and figured something was wrong because it was 25 minutes before I was to pick him up. The director told me that Xander had fallen into the cubbies, bumped his head, and now has a knot on his head! Ugh! When I reached his school the teachers were icing the lump on his forehead. My baby is ALWAYS bumping his head, but never hard enough to cause a hickey. I took him to the ER just to make sure there was no damage, you know at this age, the front of the head is still so soft. After 2 hours we were released with a clean bill of health! The X-ray showed no fractures or anything like that. The doc told me to wake him every 3-4 hours and check him out. If everything looks good in 12-24 hours, then there's no problem. He's going to have a nice black and bruise tomorrow, though!

I'm glad it wasn't anything serious - I hate that lump you get in your throat when you get that call that they've had a "little accident".
