I've been very cranky these last few days. I spent most of Thursday in the emergency room after Mom fell down and hit her head, and when I finally got home I found OL had turned into a pumpkin. I am now starting to be impressed. Mom comes home tomorrow with a few stitches and a black eye. When old people hit their heads--and not so old--you want Cat Scans to rule out intracranial bleeding. My aunt by marriage didn't do that and spent the last seven years of her life in a nursing home after suffering an effective stroke caused by pressure on the brain that could have easily been relieved if caught in time by the insertion of a shunt. A boy in Australia recently suffered a head injury and his doctor under the instructions of a remote neurosurgeon used a common electric drill to drill a hole in his skull to relieve bleeding pressure. Ronald Reagen fell off a horse in Mexico after he was President, hit his head and got a shunt. Words to the wise.
