So Rosalynn is 2.9 and healthy other than needing tubes in her ears. About 2 weeks ago we think the tubes fell out. Saturday she lost her balance, fell and split her head open. She now has 3 staples in the back of her head. She also has some cold like symptoms but nothing that has affected her play or sleep. I had her at the doctors for a follow up today and her head looks good and even though her ears have fluid in them they are not infected, her chest also sounded good. She was happy and playing all morning.

She was tired and asked for a nap around 2, i checked her temp and she was 100.4 so i gave her some tylenol since she needs it for her head anyway. She woke up at 4 with a temp of 101.8, she is shaky, her heart is racing and she can barely stay awake. I managed to get her to drink a little juice but she did not want to.

The doctor said to alternate tylenol and motrin and if she still has the temp tomorrow to bring her back in. The whole situation seems weird to me. My mommy intuition says something is wrong but i dont know what. Any thoughts would be great. Thank you.

Id definately get another opinion just to make sure its not related to the head bang.

I know I am a day late, but I would take her to the ER and have them do a CT scan to make sure she doesn't have a concussion.

She is acting much better today. Im wondering if she had a cold that coincided with her head injury. I was so nervous last night but she is much better today.

I am glad she is feeling better..def keep an eye on her for a few days....could have been a slight ear infection that is clearing up on its own...

Her temp has settled to 100 for the last 24 hours. Her ent thinks its a cold, her tubes are also blocked so she is on drops for it. We go back in 2 weeks to reevaluate.
