Brain Damage!

So life is always interesting in the Hallquist side of the family! Last week my mom and dad were graciously watching M so that Hubby and I could go on a long overdue date. The date was great! But the real story is what happened while we were away.

Apparently mom was trying to swing M. Their backyard is quite a slope, but she was still trying to sit in a chair and push M at the same time. The chair was one of those plastic patio chairs that falls over if you look at it the wrong way. Sitting on the edge of the chair, Mom pushes M in her swing. The chair went backwards in the opposite direction as Mom was pushing M. Mom says it was slow motion, but she was prepared to roll down the hill. Unfortunately, the humongous pole that was holding up the deck made that impossible. So she stopped at the pole. Her head taking the hit.

She had to have stitches that night and she was sleepy and fuzzy headed since. Monday the Dr. told her he wanted to order a CT scan to double check her brain. He said he is quite certain that it has had some trauma. So today, me and the kids took Nani to the Hospital for her scan. She is quite certain that they won't find ANYTHING (Ha) on that scan.

That's the latest saga!

Holy Cow! You're poor mom! Let us know how it turns out. She's gonna have a quite a story to tell everyone in San Antonio!
