Ds1 (2yrs old) and ds2 (1yr old) where playing in the living room this afternoon and had all the couch cushions and pillows on the floor, they were building a fort. Ds2 crawled up onto a stack of pillows when ds1 jumped up and shoved ds2 backwards. He was less than a foot off the ground and was on carpet but he hit his head just right. He cried for a split second and then passed out. I scooped him up and he was out cold, totally limp and his face started to turn blue. After a minute or 2 he came to but was really out of it and could barely keep his eyes open. I rushed him to the ER where they performed a Cat Scan. He has a concussion and needs to be closely monitored for the next 24 hours. Please keep my precious baby boy in your thoughts and prayers.
Update - It was a really long night, we had to wake him every hour to check on him. He is doing great though and is going to be just fine. I think we are going to go ahead and have his birthday party today as planned. I'm sure I will be overly protective all day and all the grandparents will be giving him tons of TLC. Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and kind words.
