Head Injury: I'm sorry. It's not easy answering a question like this, in this environment and telling you it's going to be okay. Not without more info or a chance to examine the child. It sounds like you're thinking of all the right stuff, but if you have concerns, i would suggest a trip to the er to be safe.
