I spent 3 hours this evening at Children’s Hospital Urgent Care because my son got a mild concussion. You can read about what happened here: Soccer Fields On Ancient Indian Burial Grounds
Despite the “ground breaking” app of Nationwide Children’s Hospital, the app said it was a 28 minute wait. It turns out it was a 55 minute wait. The front desk lady was clearly annoyed when I asked how much longer. Her 4 carat ring said that this job was a hobby and she didn’t need it. Just a few minutes later, we were called back.
Oh you’ll love this. I was told the following:
“If his symptoms leave, it’s not a mild concussion. If they stick, it’s a mild concussion. If things change, like he has a seizure, go to the ER.”
Esqueeze-me? Um baking powder?
That should go without saying of course I’m taking him to the ER if he has a seizure. This is probably a bad time to explain my father died from a seizure.
oh no! Poor P!! I hope the symptoms go away quickly!
Me too! At the Pediatrician as we speak.
🙁 How is he? *Waves fist at asshole receptionist*
Love you! He was officially diagnosed with a concussion. He is on “brain rest”
till Friday. He’s not even allowed to do homework! I wonder, if I got a concussion, could I call off work?
Aww… Poor guy! And yes, a concussion is always a good way to get out of work.
You don’t want a concussion to get out of work. It’s not like you get to stay home watching TLC and reading blogs. You literally can do NOTHING. Brain rest is hella boring.
Glad he is OK.
Thank you Katie. Yeah, that would totally suck! He is 100% now and played all weekend.
