duckabell Posted February 28, 2012 Share Posted February 28, 2012 My 2yo daughter fell off her chair tonight at dinner and landed on the back of her head rather hard without catching herself. She now has a nice goose egg on the back of her head. We put ice on it and it's going down. We also gave her some Tylenol. She seemed coherent throughout the ordeal and cried for five minutes or so. We also checked her pupils and they were at normal dilation. She hasn't thrown up. I'm just wanting to make sure that I'm looking for the right things in case we need to take her in. I can't find a nurses' line for my local hospital and my family members who are nurses aren't answering their phone. It is also after hours for the pediatrician. So from what I can tell I should be worried if she starts throwing up, losing consciousness, or is confused. Is there anything else I should be looking for? Her normal bedtime is in about an hour. Should I keep her up a little bit longer? How long do I need to monitor her? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
