ds2 (12 months old) fell down the stairs tonight. Just the first half - five steps. He bounced off the wall at the end. He seems fine. A few minutes of nursing and he was back to crawling around and wanting to go back up the stairs.
ds1 has had worse falls but I've never seen them so clearly. I was right at the top of the stairs inches from grabbing him before he fell so I got a really good view. I am traumatized. I even called our provincial public health helpline to have someone professional tell me the head injury signs to watch for instead of just googling them.
I won't sleep tonight. I'm going to be waking ds2 up every couple of hours to make sure he hasn't lapsed into a coma. Oh god my nerves.
I just needed to get it out there. Thanks for listening!
