Wow. so just a question.

so yesterday we were going to my inlaws house and they have a black iron fence. pass the snow is the fence.

well ds(3) was trying to beat my hubby and dd(2) into the yard. he tripped over his own feet and feel right into the fence.

thats what it looked like yesterday. my mother in law is a peds nurse she checked it out and said it was fine. but i felt it today and it feels like an indentation in his head. im calling the doc tomorrow. he was playing but im wondering if its going to be indented forever. what do u think?

  • I would go with what your MIL said, she is a pediatric nurse and has the training to know. But my son has fallen and hit his forehead and the indent goes away. As long as he is acting fine, there is more than likely nothing wrong.

  • thanks tyfry7496. he has fallen out a cart at 1 yr while my brother was watching him and i had to have him sedated for a ct and so i know what to look for if its a concussion or anything. i was just curious about the indentation.
