Sadie was still rather clumsy after last nights drama. She was running across Nani's living room when she tripped and sailed head first into the wall. She seemed alright (although she was crying) for a few minutes and then she lost consciousness.
I called 911 and they said that they would let the hospital know that we were coming (when we called 911 for Gigi last week it took over 20 minutes for the ambulance to arrive, so there was no way we were going to wait). We went in Grumpa's truck to the hospital, with Sadie regaining consciousness after about three terrifying minutes.
When we got to the hospital they acted like I was a typical overreacting mom. The doctor watched her cry in Paul's arms and had her run across the room to us and then said she was fine and sent us home. I was very, very nervous about the thoroughness of the examination.
After a couple of hours at home though, Sadie did seem to have improved greatly. She fell asleep in her bed, but I'm going to move her over into our bed so that I can keep an eye on her tonight.
In other news I'm beginning to think that a law really needs to be put in place to protect children from this type of drug exposure. The fact that no law exists is ridiculous. So I wrote quite a few letters this morning, and now it looks like we're going to be on our local ABC affiliate tomorrow night (a reporter is calling me in the morning and wants to know if we'll be available for filming).
I'm not really thrilled about that (I'm pretty painfully shy in real life) but I really think that this story needs to be told and that legislation needs to be put in place to protect children from this sort of drug exposure. Now I have some cleaning to do. If they're going to have a camera in this house tomorrow, it has quite a ways to go... these last two days have been hard on our apartment too...
Thanks to everyone for the prayers and please continue to keep us (especially Sadie) in your prayers as all of this unfolds.
