Hi, girls. I need some "my kid bumped their head and survivied" stories. Olivia hit her head on some playground equipment yesterday. She had a big ol' knot last night and it's much smaller today. She seems fine and I know it's silly to worry so much but I can't seem to stop.

Thanks, Jodi. I tend to let my imagination get the best of me sometimes. I had to make her an appt to be checked for a UTI. The Dr told me the same thing. She also said she completely understood my concern and I should call her tonight if I had any other concerns. So far, so good.

Oh no! We've had it happen here too. We're all worriers when it's our own child.

Her acting normal is the best sign that things are fine. Gabe is always bashing himself on something, he's a daredevil boy what can I say. As long as he's coherent and acting fairly normal I TRY to not worry too much.

My mom's a medical assistant and I'm in nursing school so we're likely more calm than some people but I still worry.

Mel, my friend Missy is in nursing school, too. I have a feeling I'll be calling her even more after she's done-lol.


Jodi-she's having accidents left and right. Ugh. Hope the meds clear her up ASAP.
