I am very surprised that we have not had to deal with a broken bone yet (and fingers crossed, we never do) but we HAVE dealt with concussions.....one for each of the boys.
Mr. K had his first concussion last winter....he and his brother were on a chair in the kitchen and Mr. J pushed him off (I wasn't a witness, so I can only hope it was accidental - although I suspect it wasn't) and he landed on our tile floor on his head.
He was inconsolable, lethargic and I knew immediately the reason why. He couldn't keep his head up very well, and he was confused. I put a call in to our pediatrician's office (he happens to specialize in concussions) and off we went to see him.
Mr. J was lucky, he made it until 6.5 before getting a concussion....we were at the bus stop waiting earlier in the week, and another little boy decided it would be a good idea to throw a chunk of ice at Mr. J...it hit him right above the eye. The bus came around the corner, the other child got on the bus and Mr. J was in no condition to go to school. He was hurt, crying and upset (which is completely understandable)
I got him some water and made sure he was ok and then we headed to the pediatrician's office. The verdict - very mild concussion for Mr. J, no sports or school for 5 days. He was so upset to miss his skating lesson that night, and soccer practice on the weekend. Friday happened to be a PA day, so he only ended up missing 2 days of school.
I had a mild concussion a few years ago, symptoms only lasted a few hours but it is NOT a nice feeling at all. Have you had a concussion before?
