Hello to everyone, my first time posting here.
My son who's 2 and half took a fall from my bed this morning, about 3 feet. He seemed alright, so I didn't worry about it...but later on in the day he took a nap and when he woke up he was very out of it. Confused, tired, just not himself. Then he started vomiting. He vomitted 4 times before I took him to the emergency room. Anyhow, the DR says he seemed ok, he wasn't lethargic anymore or vomiting by the time we got there. He just told me to watch him closely. He's still a little out of it though. He's usually a ball of energy, and he's just been lying in his bed watching movies since we got home. He wants to cuddle a lot too..which really isn't like him.
Anyway...I was just wondering if anyone else has gone through something similar? And what the results were?
I'm very anxious and worried. It's not his first injury, fall, trip to the ER etc., and usually I don't worry half as much as I am now. Something just doesn't seem right...I don't want to go back to the ER on a hunch though so I'll wait it out I guess.
The DR said the worst thing it could be is bruising of the brain, ok..doesn't sound too bad, until I looked it up on *****. I'm not sure how tramautic such a thing can be, but it doesn't look so great.
Sorry to go on and on, I'm just nervous and need some reasuring. http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/confused.gif
