To get rid of suspense, his head is okay, just scared me really bad.
I'm kinda freaking out, just wondering if anyone has ever been through this. This morning was pretty normal, I drive my brother to work, I come home, have a smoke on the back deck, and then start my day. Ally was the first to get up, so I start making breakfast for everyone. I hear Austyn in his room (we live in the basement of my parents house) downstairs. So I go down, take his cup and open his door. He smiles his little smile, hobbles down off his bed, and comes out of his door. I start going up the stairs and I hear this crash, I was only 2 feet away from him, I turn, he cries and there is blood EVERYWHERE.
Well I just flipped out. I didn't know where his cut was (It turned out to be the back of his head), or what he hit himself on, I still don't know, there was blood everywhere so I couldn't narrow it down, but it's a basement so there is concret floor, and corners to doors and whatnot.
Well don't we all know that I pick him up and carry him up the stairs, the whole time yelling, I NEED HELP! Because this is my third kid and I still don't know what to do. My dad looks at him and says, OH my god take him to the hospital, I just run around like an idiot.
Does anyone else ever have a mind fart when something really bad happens? Just totally blank. My dad had to tell me like 3 times to go to the hospital before I ever caught on.
Luckily, he's okay. The doctor said they didn't want to put him through stitches if they didn't have it. And I guess the skin didn't get ripped away from the head, it was just open, so the glued it, how weird is that?
I always thought I'd be okay in an emergency, but I saw all that blood, and just completely panicked. Do most moms do that when it's their kids? I've never had a kid injured more than like a scraped knee or something.
