Right after the fall did he get right up and for the moment seem OK? When did he begin complaining of the headache and how is he now--alert, knows where he is and what time it is, etc?
Well, he started crying immediately after the fall and stayed laying there for about 30 minutes crying with ice on his head. He was certainly alert and able to show me where he hurt. Unfortunately his English is so limited it is hard for me to tell complete symptoms - ie dizziness. He went up to bed for a while - we called him down for dinner. He seemed a little wobbly at that time and held his stomach and said he didn't want to eat. I woke him up about 3 hours after the incident and he seems sleepy but coherent and said he's feeling better. Just wanted to double check if I need to wake him up more during the night or get him checked further tonight.
Thanks so much for the advice Dr. Chip. Have a good night.
