his heart rate seems normal and other then the lil sluggish seems fine but im not sure

Okay

The bruising is likely to get worse before it gets better

Same for the urine

He likely has some trauma to the kidneys

Lets make sure is drinking and comfortable

hi, so update on nacho i ended up waiting till the morning on bringing him to emergency and his pee was fine no blood and i made him drink a lot so i feel good about him clearing up, now im still seeing him be a little disoriented , it scares me to say but sometime i feel like he lost vision , kinda staring aimlessley somtimes, i see him graudually getting better with those symthoms but im thinking he couldve got hit in his head to hard, if that is the case should i take him to emergency? or hold on and continue to make sure i see improvment?

Hi there

How is Nacho now?

the blood in his urine was only a one time thing and i guess it wasnt bad becuase he completly was cleared next time he went, but now i see him acting werid, kinda like he cant see, i know he can see but its like somthing he cant see im not really sure why, and hes also acting sluggish, im thinking head injury im not sure, i didnt see his head get hit or anything i dont think, it happend quick so he couldve been hit in the head, the reason i havent took him to emergency is cause i see a lil improvment every 6 hours, im jus a lil worried if theres goona be a point where he stops getting better, or if i jus need him to let him sleep it off, hes been sleeping a lot and ive been bringing him his food and water so he doesnt have to move and can rest

I think that you are doing fine

Agree that as long as he is making incremental improvement we can manage him at home
