Long weekend

Hey All,

Sorry for the disappearing act!  We've had quite a time here at Casa Kelly.  Family issues.  And my 10 month old son cracking his head so hard that there was a big horrifying squishy bump on his head, which might have been, according to the doctor, a skull fracture.  Then, running around getting X-Rays, MRIs . . .  Long weekend.  Tense.  Very tense.  He's at that age where he's pulling up, standing on his own, trying to find his balance and doesn't have a clue that he can get hurt.  

Good news is that all tests came back perfectly fine.  Not a problem in sight.  So I can breathe easier now and get back to the daily grind . . .

Aw yuck, Kelly. Child got one of those once when she cracked her head into the sofa arm. HUGE purple bruise sticking straight out on her forehead.

*sigh*

I'm glad he's okay!!

At 18 months, I actually did fracture my skull. In fact, thirty-some years later, I still have a flat place on the top of my head. Mom and Dad said it sounded like a melon hitting the floor. And look at me today. Absolutely no sign of brain ...

What was I saying?

Becky said...

OH NO!!!!! Poor little guy! Glad he is ok!

Kelly Gay said...

Thanks, Susan! I guess I need to prepare myself for many more moments like these b/c that boy is not slowing down!

OMG, LeeAnn, you crack me up . . . :D

Thanks Beck. :)

Oh man - glad the little guy's okay. Our ten-month-old is banging his head (mostly his forehead) all the time these days. And just wait 'til they start walking!

So glad to hear that your little one is okay. It's a wonder that mothers of small children aren't all grey-haired and hooked on prozac.

I remember when my two were that age and part of you wants to clap every time they try something daring and pull it off, but the other part of you is terrified that they're going to climb to the top of the china cabinet and jump in the two seconds your back was turned.

Glad to see you back.

P.S. I saw football helmets at the University Bookstore today when I went to class... should I send him one? It may be a wise and stylish investment.

Oh gosh, that's awful. I'm glad to hear that he's fine. I hate these types of scares. We had one similar to this when my daughter was really small. She had a lump that looked like a third eye! Yikes. Scary.

Take a deep breath, Kelly.

Yeah, Mike, the whole walking thing -- not sure I'm ready for it yet. *sigh*

Pamala -- you totally nailed it. You want to encourage them to try new things, but at the same time it scares the daylights out of you. And that one second you're not looking is when disaster always seems to strike.

Beck -- LOL. That image of him in a football helmet -- hysterical.

Thanks Yolanda. :)
