It is a sound that mothers do not want to hear. I am one of them!!! Never did I want to hear it.!! But, last evening I did! Oh, my!! Makes my stomach ill to remember. Here's what happened.
Yesterday Jovan's beloved auntie was over to help mommy with some landscaping. We had just planted a Maple tree and were watering it. Jovan was playing with his cousin..laughing and having so much fun!! The next thing I know is I hear this THUD, I turn around and there is my son face down on the tar. He did not move..now come to think about it I should have waited until he moved before I picked him up. I scoped him up and ran into the house..and not until I got in did I check him. He was crying and his eyes were filling his little face with tears.
I put ice on his forehead..so tenderly, but still gave him pain. My stomach was in my chest now..and I was trying to remain calm. I was also talking to my husband and sister about what to do. Jovan is a small child with upper body strength and really propelled himself forward.. He appeared to be okay...we were asking him where he hurt..pointing to a few spots on his head. His response was like okay people I hurt my head right here!! Just the way he spoke was cute. Then about fifteen minutes later he started to grind his teeth. Now he used to do that up until about two months after we brought him home. Then my sister said "you better take him in to the ER."
So Jovan and mommy went to the ER and we were seen rather quickly! The only time he cried was when he went for the x-ray. That always freaks him out. He did great!! Then we were told that he was fine..just had a bad bump on the head. The doctor gave Jovan a picture of an x-ray of his head. On our way we went.
As we were leaving Jovan saw it was dark outside..he said "oh-oh, dark". He wanted to know who turned it dark out. :) So cute it made me smile!! I gave Jovan some Tylenol and put him to bed.
Waiting for results of x-ray...
