Our Trip to Cedar-Sinai

Well apparently you can fall 3 feet off the couch. Land just perfect, act totally normal but still have cracked you skull and have torn an artery in your head which is bleeding into the lining between your brain and you skull. So a trip to the pediatrician, then x-ray, then CT then a call to the head of pediatric neurosurgery at Cedar-Sinai and we were on our way there. They put him in the PICU and then 7 the next morning off to surgery. 3 days later and we are finally home. During surgery they cut him open and removed a large peace of skull fixed the artery and cleaned everything up then put the skull back together stitched him up and now they say 4 weeks for the bone to fuse back together. The joy of children. I do not think I have any tears left.
