..and then I got a concussion


Sorry for the picture of my swollen forehead. I think my forehead is huge normally, and now it is even bigger. :(

I was such a klutz today and crashed my head into the front of our apron front sink in the kitchen while getting the garbage ready to go out. Lovely. About ten minutes after it happened the room was still spinning and my head was hurting so bad, I also felt extremely tired.

I told Ronald and he came home right away to keep an eye on me. I called a nurse and they set up an appointment for me to be seen. I found out I have a mild-concussion. It's hours later and I still have a headache and a little dizziness. I am also sleepy beyond words. I have to be with someone for the next 24 to 48 hours. 

Tonight Ronald has to wake me up every two hours to check on me. Then when he goes to work in the morning, my mother-in-law will come spend the day with me. 

This is really no fun. I can't believe I hit my head as hard as I did! And the day before my birthday no less. Oh well...

All I can say is take care of your noggin!

xx, C

  5. I had a concussion when I was little. The only thing I remember is playing "Ring-Around-the-Rosie" with my friends, then waking up in my living room. Apparently when I fell down, I hit my head and rolled into the street! (My front yard where we were playing had a slope to it.) I faded in and out of consciousness for a 24 hour period and every time I woke up, I threw up! It was awful so I totally understand how you feel! I hope you feel better soon and Happy belated Birthday!!
