Einstein's noggin and the door frame

For once, I'm glad to see the weekend's over!

Q. What do you get when you cross Einstein's melon and a door frame?


A. A trip to the ER!
We can thank Norman the dog for this one!

Long story short, Einstein was chasing Norman down the stairs so that he wouldn't escape the house through the basement door. Einstein thought it was a good idea to jump the last few steps of the stair case however it was a very bad idea. He jumped into the top of the door frame slamming his head which cause him to then fall back on the stairs knocking himself out cold.

He was alone at the time and I talked to him about 30 min after it happened. He couldn't tell me how long he was out for and he was a little bit "out of it." So off to the ER we went. My parents met us at the hospital to take TT home. 4 hours later we got his CT results that every thing looked normal and he had a concussion with a nice big egg and cut on the top of his noggin.

Fast forward to yesterday afternoon/evening. We're just getting ready to sit down to dinner with friends and the ER doctor calls. Apparently the in house radiologist reviewed his head CT scan and thought he saw some bleeding and wanted Einstein back for another CT scan as soon as possible. So off to the ER we went again. 3 hours later results were normal. Thanks to Baer and his girlfriend Julie for staying with Thomas the Terrorist :)

It's kind of funny, when I was pregnant with Thomas Einstein had blood drawn and somehow the lab results got screwed up and they told us his kidneys were no good. Now I'm pregnant with Baby Boy No. 2 and he's head injured! These Doctors like to make this pregnant lady crazy!

Although looking at the next two pictures, I'd probably think that Einstein IS head injured.
Who in their right mind wears socks with flip flops?!?!

omg - i hope he is better soon. i have to admit i chuckled with the vision of him jumping through the air off the steps and hitting the door frame - knocking himself out nonetheless! i've known people that have done that before! poor guy! oh, and the sandals - that just kills me!!!

Wow what a weekend...I hope that he is feeling better soon and glad to hear that there is no "permanent damage done" that you tell YET!! although he might need another scan/ get a 2nd opinion because those flip flops with socks..not normal :)

OMG! I'm glad he is OK, and I hope he's 100% better soon. YIKES!

Wow, I'm glad it wasn't any worse. But I will admit in a pinch I might have put flip flops on with socks.

well...he did have a concussion! Here's hoping he feels much better soon.

Ouch! I hope his noggin is feeling better soon. The sandals and socks are hillarious although, I am completely guilty of that early in the am when I am taking our dog out to her kennel. : )hahaha.

Okay, I know it's seriously wrong but my chuckle turned into the snort laugh when I saw the fashionable footwear Einstein was sporting. I would insist on a third CT scan...BWAHAHAHA!

Poor Einstein! I'm just glad that there was no brain bleeding and such; if there was, he'd probably be wearing a hula skirt with the socks and flip flops :).

Most importantly, did The Norminator make his escape or did he come back in the check out the destruction he left in his wake?

And it's come down to Thomas Terrorist now, huh? Oh no! :)

Holy crap! Glad he is OK.

That's a huge fear of mine. Something will happen and I will be all by myself.

and I won't comment on the socks and flip flops. a certain man in my life has been known to wear his sandals with socks. No names mentioned of course. :)

What is it with men trying to freak us out while we are in the middle of making them a baby in our bellies?! Hello?!

Wow...that sounded so dumb...making him a baby in our bellies....first that sounded like a grade schooler thing and then it sounded sexist.

Well, I haven't had much sleep, so give me a little break. :-)

The sandals...maybe his feet were cold? And he did just hit his head so...yeah...probably something got shook loose there.

Flips and socks....hmmm nothing better. Lol
