Little Alex had an Emergency Room adventure on Christmas Eve. A day before, Teddy was holding him, when he slipped on the hardwood floors and even though he tried to protect the baby's head, Alex still hit his head on the floor. We thought everything was fine but after a very restless night, I discovered that the left side of his head was very swollen. We decided to not take any chances, so, while everyone else was preparing for dinner and presents (we open presents on Christmas Eve), I took Alex to the ER, where after 5 hours of waiting they told us that the CT scan showed no cranial fracture, just an accumulation of blood outside the skull. He is fine now but still cries when I dress/undress him and he gets touched on the head.
