I got home from work yesterday to find Jim walking around in a stupor. Come to find out he was working outside and a tree branch had fallen on his head! It left a huge indentation (he's bald, so it was easy to tell lol). Good thing he had a baseball hat on.
He refused to go to the emergency room (of course). So I googled concussion. Watch for headache (yep), dizziness (yep), ringing of ears (yep), nausea (nope). Seek medical attention if nausea or headache persists for a long period of time. Ok. So I let him lay down and woke him up every half hour. At one point he asked me why I had let the little kitten in that was hiding behind the wood stove. That kinda freaked me because there was nothing behind the stove... Finally around midnight he sat up and said the ringing in his ears had stopped. We sat and talked awhile and then I let him go to bed. I'll have to admit I didn't sleep well and kept waking him up throughout the night.
Today he seems just fine - thank goodness! It sure made me stop and think about how fragile life is and how quickly it can be taken from us.
Have to get going now. Get to go to the mean ol' dentist today. Later!
