Connor's 1st ER Visit

So, yesterday started out with me waking early to get us all ready for a trip to Houma to visit Kim. Connor was on the bed with Hadley and I walked out to get some things together. A few minutes later, I heard Hadley scream and Connor start crying. My stomach sank as I immediately knew what had happened. I ran into the room and picked him up. As soon as I got him in my arms he stopped crying so I continued getting us together for our day trip. Here's a picture of all the kiddos.
Does this look like a kid that's having any problems?
Anyway, we were at their house for about an hour before I noticed a fairly large lump on Connor's head. It was soft to the touch so Kim & I decided to take him to Urgent Care in Houma. They checked him out, but couldn't really tell anything without a CT scan so I opted to head back home to our doctors and hospital. At this point Connor was still acting normal as if nothing is wrong. We drove the hour home after I talked to Dr. J's office and they suggested we come in to the Emergency Room have him checked out.
Here's big sister comforting her "baby brudder" before his CT. Hadley left shortly after this picture was taken. My awesome friend Allison came and picked her up to spend the night. I'm sure she had an awesome time with Benjamin and Sarah.

Here is our little cutie with a monitor on his toe.
We walked around in the stroller trying to tire Connor out, as he needed to be really still in order to get the CT without sedation. He never fell asleep, but he did wonderfully as you can see below. These are both before they put the strap on his head to hold him still. He didn't cry at all. He was such a big boy.

About an hour after the CT, we were told there was a skull fracture and possible bleeding so they wanted to do a full body x-ray to make sure there were no other fractures, and to check up on me too I'm sure. Connor was not as happy about the x-rays and I didn't get any pictures because Darrell had gone home to get our things. We were staying the night in the hospital to have Connor observed overnight.

Poor Connor and poor Mama. I know that must have been such a scary night. I am praying for all of you.

My heart goes out to you scary! We will be in the hospital next Wednesday for overnight testing with Easton:( He has now been classified as failure to thrive due to his inadequate weight gain!!

How scary, nothing is as bad as something happening to our babies. I will be praying for your sweet baby!

This is so little boy fell off the bed a couple months ago. Thankfully he slid off so it wasn't as hard of a landing. Hope he is feeling better soon!
