Wow seems, I don't know...a LOT better than a like.Even though wow is like dude. The tone used when saying it make it a positive, or a negative thing.

Ugh! A concussion is serious business. Looks damn painful.
No joke! When I was a teenager, I got a mild concussion during one of our last hockey games of the season. Still had headaches from it, at the beginning of the next season. Wouldn't wish one on my worst enemy!

X, hear's to her speedy recovery!

Well, things got worse. She feel in the kitchen earlier, and hit her head on the stone floor. A lot of blood, so I called 911. They did a new CT scan and she has swelling, and bleeding on her brain. The fall was probably caused by swelling from the fall on Friday. I came home to make sure the dogs are settled, eat some dinner, and I'm heading back to the ICU. They're going to do another scan in a few hours to see if there is any active bleeding. If so, then surgery is next.

This fucking sucks. Thanks for letting me vent, I have to be positive around everyone here. It isn't easy.
oh shit man.godspeed to recovery.

my ex had this happen years ago.turned out she has glaucoma with vision issues, why she fell.prayers for you and her.

Tell her not to take it hard. I know from all my running on sidewalks ... sidewalks are not to be trusted. They conspire with trees ... a tree hangs a branch low, and a sidewalk inches a section up to get the trip. I've banged myself up many times on these.

Speedy recovery wishes to your wife!

Not totally relevant, but I just watched a show on a NHL hockey player that retired because of lasting effects of a few concussions.

If she says she feels better and life is fine, don't believe it and watch for signs. Things can be long term....

Symptoms range from mild to severe and can last for hours, days, weeks, or even months.

Common signs and symptoms of a concussion include:

  • A headache or a feeling of pressure in the head
  • Temporary loss of consciousness
  • Confusion or feeling as if in a fog
  • Memory loss surrounding the traumatic event
  • Dizziness
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Slurred speech
  • Delayed response to questions
  • Appearing dazed
  • Double vision
  • Fatigue

I know it won’t help your wife feel better... but I just nerco-wowed a bunch of Bigfoot410’s post, just because I thought it would be funny.

It may be 6 weeks before we know the extent of her recovery. She has no indications of any loss of motor skills, and she can talk, etc. She's just confused sometimes, kinda a lot of times. There is still swelling and blood that will get better. What I wasn't prepared for was how deeply sad I am. I need to get that in check before it becomes a real issue. I can't sleep so I'm going to sneak off to the gym for a couple hours. That will definitely help.

Thank you for listening, I sincerely appreciate all of you.

Look to the bright side of the street.

She is doing well and recuperating and has you to care for her...

A bit of confusion is understandable....

I once tried to take the ass end and fin off of the back of a 60's Ford Wagon.....with my face...at a pretty good speed....
Short version, nurses had all mirrors taped over for days and I could see in right eye kinda sorta after a couple weeks...

Always look to the bright side as there is always one there if one looks... Be thankful.....

Now go burn off some energy and such at the gym......



Bike will be good.... S T A T I O N A R Y bike... Ground level and shit... Just sayin.... ;)

All we can say is Hang In There! You have lots of real reasons to be hit harder than you ever expected. Life sometimes can be fragile. Who'd think just taking your pup for a walk could be this devastating. But, I hope you can see how much light there is at the end of the tunnel. Some don't get that!

Hope is not a strategy, but it certainly is on the horizon!
