Fisher's first trip to the ER.

What a day!! Oh, yeah...there'll be no more of this. My little Houdini has learned out to wriggle himself out of his swing. I was showing Cory a chandelier that Jen found for my boy's room on the computer upstairs. We heard a huge thud sound and looked down and Fisher was on the ground. Our linoleum over concrete kitchen floor to be exact. He got a contussion. I called Children's Healthcare and the advice nurse called me back shortly. She asked me all these questions...I told her to the best of my ability. Really, Fisher was acting fine after he was consoled for a few moments. Playing and laughing. The nurse said that since he seemed fine and wasn't throwing up that he should be okay. Ha!! A few minutes after hanging up with her, Fisher threw up. Then after the third time, I called Children's back up. They said to take him to the ER. Off we went. Oh, yes, before we left, he threw up one more time on Cory.

We get there, wait...someone calls us back, takes his pulse, etc., then we wait some more. Then a very kind, classy lady saw us next. Made me wish I had actually showered and had makeup on. Anyway. She determined that my baby should have a CT. So, back to the waiting room some more. I heard Fisher's name again and a man comes out and says, "Are you it??" He said that we may need more people to hold Fisher down to do the CT. Thankfully, Fisher did wonderful and the guy went on saying how Fisher was the best patient and had made his day and now he could go home. He was getting off...We waited a little more, then the classy nurse came back and told us it would be a few more minutes and would we like to come sit back on the bed where she saw us earlier. I politely declined, but did ask if the CT came back unfavorably what would happen. She said in that case, they would rush him to the Children's hospital. I said I didn't think it would be bad and she agreed because his eyes looked fine and other things. She didn't really explain or give me any idea about his vomiting, though. So finally, we got the results and they were negative. PRAISE THE LORD!!!
We came back home. Cory told me he called up our good friend, Jeremy and had him pray. Then Jeremy's wife, Megan, called up some of the couples in our old Bible study group and had them praying. I was so glad we had so many people on our side praying for our little boy. God has truly blessed us with so many wonderful, Christian friends. I told Cory how well Fisher did in the CT and Cory said that he was praying that God would send Angels to be in there with him or Jesus Himself and that all would go well. I believe He was in there, because Fisher didn't cry or move while it was going on. We have to monitor Fisher tonight and see how he does thru tomorrow. I am prayfully hopeful that he will be okay. God is good!! Bye, bye swing...we'll miss you.

oh man, I feel for ya...Maddy was running down the hall Friday night and fell face first into the doorjam. She immediately had a HUGE goose egg and now it is just swollen on her forehead. Praise God she has acted fine and showed no signs of anything being wrong (other than a sore noggin!:( ) Thank goodness my husband is an EMT so he knew what to watch for. She is doing fine but I get that sick to my stomach feeling every time I look at her and see her owie. I will keep your lil sweetie in my prayers...and would appreciate your prayers for mine!
