Jackson fell out of his crib Sunday night. Well actually, his crib broke and fell on Makayla and tossed Jackson on his head. I wasn't to worried because he didn't have a knot or bruise. The next morning however, we discovered that Jackson had thrown up in the night. He threw up all day and slept most he day. I started to worry that maybe it wasn't just the flu, but that maybe he had hurt his head. I had been trying all morning to get into the doctor but they couldn't see me til 4:30 and at that time Jeremy got a hold of his surgeon both Doctors said it wasn't a bad idea to go to the emergency room but his surgeon wasn't too worried and thought it would probably be a waste of time and money. It would have probably cost us around 800 to 1500 dollars. Ouch! (he would have had a CT scan)
by around 5 he ate and started talking a little and smiling so we just checked on him a lot thought the night. He woke up twice at night and I gave him water and yogurt which he didn't throw up and he hasn't thrown up since about 8:30 last night.
Today he's wearing his helmet every other hour except for when he's sleeping and in his car seat. He doesn't like it very much but I guess he'll get used to it. Tomorrow he'll wear it for 2 hours then take it off for one. He won't wear it while asleep or in his carseat for a few days. His fifth day wearing it he'll keep it on 23 hours sleeping and in his carseat. So from then on out he'll wear it 23 hours a day. He'll take it off one hour a day for bathtime and I'll clean his helmet and make sure it dries completely.
How do you like his stickers?
