12.12.12 The Scariest Night of our Lives

Posted by Chelsea on Friday Dec 14, 2012 Under Preschool

What a night! Let me preface this by saying that Lucy is okay!

We were over at Danny and Sarah’s tonight for Friend Dinner and Lu was having a blast. She was giggly and silly and jumping around and just having fun. She started throwing herself back on the couch-like jumping back and hitting the back of the couch and then giggling hysterically. Shaun had just asked her to stop and she did it again. Only this time, she was on part of the couch with no back and she fell HARD, off the couch, right on her head. It was a carpeted surface but it was hard. We picked her up and she was limp, then she squirmed in such a way that I thought she had paralyzed herself, I was worried about her neck. She then had about 30 seconds of the “silent cry” followed by wailing and crying. After I calmed her down and got her ice she was acting strange. She did read us a book but she was lethargic and off. We sat down for dinner and she just wanted to lay in my lap. She then asked to go home. I was finishing dinner and at this point we were worried about concussion. We were on our phones trying to figure out symptoms and I sent a text to Dr Waj asking what I should do when she fell asleep in my lap which is totally NOT NORMAL. We woke her up and she puked everywhere.

We took her straight to the ER. They took us right back and we instantly had 5 people in the room checking her out. It was frightening. The Dr. said that she was probably fine but he wanted a CT scan (or MRI-I can’t remember which one). Immediately the lady was there to do the scan. Lucy fell asleep while getting the scan (the hospital encouraged her to sleep). After the scan, we were told that we should have results in 20 minutes. After we got back from that, the “Children’s Trauma Team” came to visit and see how she was doing. At this point we had been at the hospital maybe 30 minutes and we had seen 8 different people. Shaun and I were quietly freaking the fuck out. Lucy slept on my lap through the whole thing.

After 30 minutes of waiting (the longest wait of my life) the Dr. came in to let us know that her scan was normal and she just had a slight concussion. He told us to sleep with her and monitor her breathing. If her breathing changed or she puked to bring her right back in.

Dr. Waj was away from his phone during the ordeal. I texted him after the scan and then after we got the results. He texted back after the results and apologized profusely for not having his phone. The ER doctor did hear a murmur in Lucy’s heart (unrelated to the concussion) so we’ll be going to see Dr. Waj soon to get that checked out. I apologized to Waj for bothering him and he said “Oh gosh no bother at all- sorry for your scare!” What an amazing doctor, eh?

Shaun and I commented the whole time that we were happy that we were in Boise when this happened. We got amazing and prompt care. We were headed home when we probably still would have been in the waiting room in San Mateo. I know that if something had been wrong that we don’t have a pediatric neurologist but I’m friends with a woman whose sister is one and is in the interview process to come to Boise. If one had, god forbid, been needed we could always get Lucy to one relatively easily. The ER doctor was even calling Waj by first name and wasn’t surprised in the least that I was texting him. It was really an amazing experience.

It was also a really scary one that I never want to repeat again!!!

Lu is doing great! She had a headache yesterday and was more tired than normal but other than that, you wouldn’t even know anything had happened. She went to school and had an awesome day.

I was asking her about the scan and if it was scary (I was right with her the whole time) and she said it was fun and she wanted to do it again! She also said that the hospital was fun and that she wanted to go back. Crazy girl!

That really does speak to the amazing care we had. I am SO thankful for St. Luke’s and the amazing medical care we receive in Boise.

Here’s a picture of Lu with “Teddy”. Aunt Marci and Uncle Richard sent a balloon bouquet and Teddy was part if it. Lucy keeps saying, “Teddy, I LOVE YOU!” Teddy is sleeping with all of us right now. :)

    These are short-term unsecured personal loans, implying that you do not

    Loan requesters list the amount that they want
    to borrow, the interest rates that they’re willing to pay, what the loan will be used for,
    and a little bit about themselves in order to show why they
    need the money. As you can see, in this situation it pays to take out a payday loan and get the item you need for your family
    to be comfortable and it actually saves you money.

  58. Weight Destroyer Says:

    To lose weight is the system of consuming food in a regulated fashion to achieve or maintain a restricted weight.
    Cut down on sweet beverages – Soft drinks,
    juices, sherbets will not fill you up and are unnecessary calories.

    Not solely do you cut back weight, but your garden and yard
    will flourish with the additional care.

    and the Ford GT Mustang. Shoving the pedal to the floor in an effort
    to get to cruising speed quickly can, particularly with older cars,
    push more fuel through the system than is needed, resulting not only in increased fuel use, but in fouling of the engine due to
    build ups from partially combusted fuel.

    A sick child at home, for example, will require more

    make a decision to focus on all that is good in your life.
    The first two are unwelcome and the third is the goal of a
    good reader. People today become all the more discouraged and lose
    even more self-confidence in their selves when they are made to feel as
    if they just can’t manage to feel the way that everybody
    else does. I have heard that it is better to learn from other people’s mistakes,
    rather than learn from your own. I believe that if something you do has a negative impact on someone or something else, it will come back to
    you even if what you did was not malicious.
