Concussion...

Last weekend was a little crazy for us at the Rohner house..It started off like any other day. Wake up, change diapers, turn on Elmo, make breakfast...as I was fixing myself some breakfast while the girls ate Brynlee decided it would be a good idea to fall off her chair. backwards. She didn't catch herself and I ran to help her. She was screaming/not breathing/having a seizure as I ran to the couch. She turned bright white and got super stiff as I held her. She was jerking around and her face didn't even look like my daughter. I was completely freaking out but then it stopped and she was completely fine? I called my mom and might have been a little out of control. She said to call the doctor. So, I called, they put me on hold. While I waited on the phone Brynlee started puking. Over and over and over...I really started freaking out then and got her in the car. Luckily my sister came to the rescue and stayed at our house with Reese. We started driving to Cardon's hospital but Brynlee started throwing up again like crazy. I started freaking out more and went to Phoenix childrens urgent care which is pretty close to our house. Kyle met me there and asked someone to help us. Their urgent care doesn't open until 5. But after looking at Brynlee decided they needed to have a nurse check her out. They looked at Brynlee for about 15 minutes and decided to call an ambulance. 5 hours and a CT scan later and they told us Brynlee had a really bad concussion and better stay on the ground for the next week or so. Probably the scariest moment of my life. I think we have all been a little terrified of head injuries in our family and we didn't want to even think of the worst case scenarios. Luckily she has been completely fine, and has been a little too much back to normal :) It's been very difficult trying to keep our very active 2 year old settled down.

First (and hopefully LAST) Ambulance Ride...

Oh how scary, I always worry when the kids have bad falls and it seems like all rohnin does these days is fall, off of high places, and we are usually standing right there when it happens, I can't even count on one hand how many times he has fallen off every one of our beds I HATE IT, Addy I think only had maybe 5 big memorable falls but this boys is out of control and after hearing your scary story...well to say the least I am nervous for when my day comes...kids are so active and crazy sometimes with all the climbing and running, it is honestly AMAZING they survive childhood! I really am sooo glad she is doing better and wish you all the luck cause it is so hard wishing there was two of us moms to go around, to better serve the bangs, bruises, and needs of our active and busy children...I hope for your sake you have an uneventful weekend...I am so glad everyone is doing better!
