Where did that come from?

Yesterday Cameron & I headed to Fred Meyer to grab a few things and we decided to rent a Pokemon movie (his favorite thing right now). While walking to the video store I stepped a few feet in front of Cameron and he was jabbering away behind me when I heard this horrible head hitting metal sound. I turned around, Cameron was on the ground screaming and he had scrapes on his knees and a baseball size lump on the side of this head. Let me give you a better visual: You're walking along not paying attention, feet are in motion, you are abruptly stopped by a big cement block (the block at FM in not flush with the sidewalk but sits up on top) it thrusts you forward you fall to your knees on top of the cement block and then your head meets the metal post...ouch!!! Needless to say Cameron had a headache all day and Children's Tylenol was not helping. My little guy was pretty lifeless and not hungry (maybe this is why he did not like Kung Fu--ok??) He fell asleep about 7:00 and woke up with a huge headache I decided it was time to take him to the emergency room.

I was in the middle of my Pampered Chef party and luckily my friend Jolene was there and decided to go with me. When the nurse asked him how bad it hurt he said, "really bad," she then said, "Oh, that's a 10." The lobby was full and I was for sure we were going to have to wait forever but they took us right back.

Sometime blankie comforts better than Mom!

They did a Cat Scan which came out fine...mild concussion.

I thought everything was going to be fine...however, Cameron threw up on the way home and then woke me up at 4 am with a headache and a stomach...he has ran a temp of over 100 all day. Silly me, he had the flu and was suffering from that last night and I thought it was from his head injury. That's why I'm not called Dr. Mom!!!!

Poor Cameron! I hope the lump doesn't stay on his head too long and he feels better soon. Sick kids are no fun! And, now I am going to be paranoid everytime we are walking outside of Fred Meyer, I've heard that sound with Katie before and it is scary.
