Ok so my son and daughter were playing. my daughter (the alien age 2) and my son (superhero trying to blast the alien age 4) were running around. Our kitchen is somewhat awkward to our living room (you cant see into the kitchen when walking in from living room and its not an open kitchen it has a door way) and has now taken the name of the "blind spot." And I have since brought back out the baby gate so neither one can get in the kitchen. Well The alien ran into the kitchen, superhero chased (while mommy was just getting the "Lets stop" out of her mouth, didnt even get "Running" out) and at some point the alien turned to run out. BOOM! Well after the collision, my poor baby alien girl had fallen back and hit her head perfectly on the corner of the doorway. She started crying right away which is a good sign, but she had a small gash in her head (which i didnt know was small at that point, I saw blood and ran to the ER). I had to explain to my bawling son, while running red lights, that it wasnt his fault, he was crying so bad (she wasnt) that the people in the ER thought he was the one needing to be seen. He told the nurse "Im just a little nervous and worried, it was an accident. I dont want my sister to stay here." It was so sad, after all the paperwork i was able to sit with him and explain accidents happen and that his sister was here to make sure everything was ok, and that the er was the right place to be. That seemed to calm him down. So anyways my alien girl walked away with some head bling (lol) 4 staples to be exact. But my question is, Do you think if the doctors saw any need for a cat scan or xray they would have done it? I mean they just sent her home, and she seems to be doing fine. She knows her name, answers my questions, shes walking (she was able to do this right after it happend). I did express my concern to the doc and nurses about maybe getting an xray, but they said that this is so common with kids ages 2-5 (she said they do this on the daily) and its very rare that they need to do an xray or catscan. All in all YES kids are resilent, YES she is most likely fine, YES she will heal quicker than me and YES I am a complete wreck over this whole situation. But has anyone had experiences like this? Maybe you could share and help me put my mind at ease?
