Today has been a really rough. We got Emmett John to see his pediatrician today to follow up. Turns out the hospital missed quite a bit. This is what we learned.
His nose is broken but doesn’t require surgery at this point. The biggest thing was the bruising behind his ears. I heard that and got sick to my stomach. That is a sign of intracranial bleeding. He said he is concerned about major internal head injury. Dr. H said on a scale of 1-10 he is worried at about a 6. Emmett John is doing fine after 24 hours so most likely all will be fine. We have to watch him closely over the next few days. If we notice anything at all he goes straight to the ER.
Gavin had a perfect day at school but struggled at home. Elliott Richard is fairly traumatized after watching his baby brother fall down the steps. He was so brave. After it happened he calmly came upstairs and told me that Emmett John fell down the steps and needed my help. Elliott Richard was ok till I told him that I was taking Emmett John to the hospital. He began sobbing hysterically. He was so scared for Emmett John. He is my sweet little angel. We must be doing something right because Elliott Richard is turning out pretty good.
Lizze and I are both still sick but still alive. Lizze has really been struggling with her pain the past few days.
I wish she could catch a break.
I have been better but also worse. I just wish I was in a better physical condition (mainly my back). I would be able to do more then whàt I can do now.
poor poor Emmett John ! I hope he recovers just fine.. my house is like Fort Knox – safety gates up everywhere – Angelo scales one thats 4ft high in about 3 seconds..
Emmett John is the very same way.We have done the very same thing also. He just won't let that stop him. I think just about every single day my wife and I say to each other "we are in for trouble with this one".
Thanks for the comment.
