Concussion and Swimming in October

Last week we met one of Aedan's new school friends at a park after school. The boys had a blast! Unfortunately, Aedan took a pretty good fall off a stone ledge. He hit the side of his head. I didn't see it happen, but he was pretty upset so we headed home. I was planning to get him home and put some ice on his head.


Well, as soon as we pulled into the driveway, he started throwing up. So I handed Adelaide off to Jon and took him to the ER. Luckily a stand alone ER just opened in town and we were the only ones there. Everyone was very nice and very fast. They checked him out and did a CT scan. Everything looked fine, but he ended up with a mild concussion.



We kept him home from school for a couple of days so he would take it easy. He was a little off the day after the fall, but by the second day he was back to himself. We are very thankful it was not any worse!


And because no post is complete without a picture of this girl. I can't believe she is about to be 3 in just a couple of weeks! She keeps us on our toes and is so much fun. I have a feeling she is going to be the class clown one day. She literally drives this little car all around the house all day.


I am so ready for some cooler weather! It has been in the 90s (even high 90s) all week. On Monday, we decided to embrace the hot weather and go swimming. The water was a little chilly but the kids had a blast. Now come on fall! We are ready!
