I was heading up to Hunter's bunkbed to get more blankets for our fort, when I mis-stepped on the way back down. He has stairs, not a ladder up to his bunk which you think would be safer. Well, not for a klutz like me!
I tipped off the stairs sideways and the back side of my head came crashing down onto the edge of a wooden toy box. I am pretty sure my head hit that before the rest of my body hit the floor. It nearly knocked me out; I saw black and stars for a moment. It took me a bit, but I managed to get myself sitting upright and called out to Hunter to bring me the phone. Matt was at work, but came home to check me out.
I had to go to our Health Centre to be checked out, but I will be fine. Some whiplash, maybe a slight concussion, my ear is numb, some swelling and I have some nice bruising coming out. My body is sore all over too, but I don't remember hitting anything other than my head. Yesterday I was happy to send the kids over to a friends house since I was struggling with bouts of dizziness and nausea.
Today I feel so much better though! No nausea or dizziness, just still a bit stiff and sore. I have greater range of motion with my head already. And it looks like I may have knocked some sense out of me since I lost another pound that day. :)
