Saturday Evening!

On Saturday just before I went up to put the kids to bed I was feeding Mason. Over the monitor I heard a comotion for a minute and then it got to be more and more of a comotion and Chad was telling me that after doing one thing he would go up to put them into bed. Just then the comotion turned into screaming and I raced up the stairs to see what had happened. Emma was crying hysterically and so was Heidi andMadison seemed to be ok.
Heidi has been a brave little girl lately and has been climbing into the top bunk bed to play...of course not being able to get down on her own. Her older sisters like to take on the role of mommies and decided to get Heidi down on their own. Madison was at the top lowering Heidi down and Emma was at the bottom to catch her. The problem was that Madison let go before Emma was ready and Heidi fell and hit Emma somewhere on her body, which caused Emma to fall backwards.....but the full force of the fall was on her head. Heidi had a little bruise and a gash on her head but otherwise everyone seemed to be ok and I got them all into bed. At about 10pm Emma comes downstairs complaining of a headache so I gave her some jr. Tylenol and she promptly threw that up. She stayed downstairs with us so we could keep an eye on her and after a half and hour she threw up again. Chad and decided that it was time to take her into the emergency room to get her checked out to rule out any serious problems. When the doctor looked her over he ruled out anything serious but decided that she definately had a minor concussion and to keep an eye on her for the next 24 hours. If she threw up anymore we were to bring her back in and she would have a CT scan done. Luckily for us she has just had minor head aches every now and then, but seems to be fine otherwise. So that was our scare for the week!
I think it scared Heidi enough that she has not attempted to go up to the top bunk bed now for a while at least. :)
