Let me go through your points in order:
1. I would not remove the subretinal blood as that really doesn't work well. If the vitreous heme does not clear that can be removed easily with a standard vitrectomy
. All surgery has risks, so I'd just give it time to reabsorb on its own.
There is a risk of re-bleed, but it is not that large so I'd not worry right now.
2. There is no way at all that the bleeding spread into your brain. The speech issues have nothing to do with the bleeding in your eye, nor does the bleeding in your eye increase the risk of bleeding in your brain.
3. You should try not to bend over just to allow the blood to settle inside your eye. You have not done any damage at all by bending over. The blood will not flip around or behind your retina just because of how you bend over or move your head. But I would hold off on your boxing lessons for a bit ;)
You daughters foot did no damage. You are worrying for nothing....
So what is the take home message? Try to relax. The best thing you can do at this point is give the blood time to reabsorb and your eye to heal and continue to follow up with your eye doc as you have been.
From what you have posted, it sounds like you are in good hand.
Whew! My fingers are all wore out from typing...time for bed :)
