A Very Scary Night!

Last night, at softball, Maggie fell and hurt her head.
Those of you who know me know that now that softball has started, we spend 5 nights a week at the fields, between both girls. It has become a big part of our family life and we love it.
Well, after Maggie's practice, it was time for Katie's practice. This is when Maggie gets to play with all of the other kids with older siblings that are practicing. I had just told Maggie that she had 20 min. to play before we were heading home to take a bath and get ready for bed. Not 2 min. later, I saw Rick running towards her. So, I ran too. She had been doing flips on some railings and slipped and hit her head on the edge of the concrete. Rick said he could hear it from 20 feet away. All I could see was her beautiful blonde hair turning red with blood. You know how head wounds are.
The scariest part came on the way to the hospital. She became 10 second Maggie. The same questions over and over. "What happened? I don't even remember. Can we get some ice cream? I don't want stitches! What was I doing?" Over and over.
Then, when we got to the hospital, she couldn't remember who Rick was. She just kept holding on to Sissi, (Katie).
Anyhow, long story short, the catscan, (sp?), came back negative and she didn't get stitches, she got 3 staples. They also gave her 2 teddy bears and a pack of Lisa Frank stickers, (the fuzzy velvet ones that you have to color in). I tell you this only because this is when the 10 second questions changed. Now they were, "I got 2 teddys? Are there markers in there to color the stickers? Can we get ice cream? Did I get stitches? I guess that's why my head hurts. What did I do?"
All is good now. She stayed home from school and is getting some rest and, yes, she got some ice cream.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a safe day!
