On Friday my daughter hit her head during a dance performance at school. She was doing some sort of leg lift/spin/flip/roll/somethingoranother, and somehow managed to whack her head on the floor of the gym. She came home complaining of nausea so of course I called our pediatrician.
Its a good thing he is used to us.
Me: She hit her head and is nauseated and her vision is a little blurry.
Dr: Sounds like a mild concussion. She should take it easy for a few days.
Me: What if she DIES like Natasha Richardson?
Dr: She’s not going to die like Natasha Richardson.
Me: What if she dies like Junior Seau?
Dr: *sigh* Junior Seau had repeated blows to the head over many years, and he didn’t just die. He killed himself. That’s not going to happen.
Me: What if she dies like Natalie Wood?
Dr: *audibly rolling eyes* Natalie Wood drowned.
Me: I don’t think you are taking me very seriously.
Dr: You could be right.
