Yesterday was a very emtional day for two reasons:
Firstly, I received a phone call from Roo’s school at 2.37pm to say she had fallen and bumped her head badly and could I come pick her up. I knew it must have been bad as the school day was almost over and they wouldn’t have called me.
When I arrived at the school she looked OK (not screaming). Her teacher explained that she has fallen off a bicycle backwards and hit the ground. I was shown where the bump was… OMG it was the size of a golf ball on the back of her head.
As soon as I saw how big the lump was I knew I would have to take her to A&E. What do I do with Tigger? Take him with us or leave him with someone? Mr Boo was away at a meeting, my MIL was unavailable (more about that later), my mum was at work but finishes at 5pm… I decided it would be best to drop Tigger off with my mum. Luckily my mum’s boss loves Roo (she often pops in with my mum on her days off) and said my mum could leave early.
A&E was quiet when we arrived and there were no other children waiting to be seen, so we were seen straight away. The children’s nurse was very good and said that he wanted a doctor to check her over. After waiting no more that 10 minutes a doctor appeared and checked her over. All OK, just need to keep an eye out for vomiting and checkon her in the night to wake her.
So very pleased she was OK but so scary getting a call from the school.
Secondly, Mr Boo’s uncle sadly passed away after a fight against throat cancer. It has been a difficult journey for him and sadly his fight is over. My MIL has been a tower of strength to all the family and my heart goes out to her and the rest of the family.
