Yes I agree with HC. Please go get it checked out. Hard floors are not very friendly to our heads.

Hope your feeling a little better now that you can get onto the site!

Keesha!!!

Oh my goodness! I hope you don't hesitate to go get checked out on your head. No need to tell you how serious a bump like that can be.

Maybe you better stay off your feet, huh?

I hope you're feeling better Now keep us posted on this. I'd feel better ifyou'd go get it checked but you are a grown up.

Easter blessings,
sandy :D

Hope you're feeling better soon.

Keesha,
My mornings are often the worst part of the day, but yours really takes the cake. Please do get checked out, even if it seems like a waste of time, if any of your symptoms persist. Head injuries have the potential for all sorts of complications.

Oh, and no more coconut sound effects, please!
:cry:

Ouch, that's gotta hurt!

Ouch! That's sounds horrible Keesha. I really hope you are okay, maybe a trip to the ER isn't such a bad idea? It sounds like you took quite a heavy fall and you really shouldn't be sleeping in case you are suffering from concussion.

I've also had difficulty accessing ASAP. This is the first time I've been here since last Thursday (which would have been Wednesday there). I kept getting an error message saying that the server wasn't responding. I even pinged it but didn't get any response.

Keesha, please be careful. From a nurses perspective the fact that you have an altered LOC (level of consiousness) after a fall screams concussion. I think it would be worth a trip to the ER myself. At the very least have you hubby wake you up every few hours tonight and if anything worsens go to the hospital!!

I don't mean to be bossy but you have me worried :shock: You are in my thoughts and prayers.

p.s. what would you advise someone else to do if they hit there head and now keep falling asleep? :wink:

Hi Keesha,

I'm sorry I didn't see your message yesterday. I thought the site was still down.

I pray you are doing much better today.

If you're experiencing any vomitting, I would suggest going to the doctor/ER immediately. My daughter, years ago, fell on concrete at the babysitters house and fractured her skull. When I picked her up after work she was vomitting continuously so I rushed her to the hospital.

If you decided not to go to the ER, at least follow-up with your physician. As HC mentioned, concrete is very unforgiving.

Take care and you're in my thoughts and prayers.
GOD Bless!

Keesha, I'm glad to hear that you got checked out @ the ER. I had hoped the hospital had been able to help you more, but you atleast got to have things *checked out*.

You atleast had a nurse that was on top of things! (My nurse during a hospital stay found my bp @ 60/40 and cut my pain med -- thank God for her!)

Sorry your dh wasn't more helpful, but hope you're feeling better every day. Keep us posted!

Best wishes!
