Son was hit hard by a soccer ball and apparently blacked out for brief second. Side of face swollen and feels like vomiting. What should I do, if anything.

The: The american academy of pediatrics recommends that you call your child's doctor for advice for anything more than a light bump on the head. If your child is alert, moving normally and responsive to you, then it's most likely a mild injury and you can follow up with your child's doctor in a day or two. It's ok to let them sleep/nap at this point if they are tired. If your child worsens, however, then that would be a reason to go to the emergency room.

Other reasons to seek emergency care are:
-vomiting
-worsening headache
-confusion
-slurred speech
-changes in behavior such as increasing irritability or fussiness
-worsening coordination such as trouble walking or clumsiness
-seizures
-changes in pupils such as one larger than the other
-lasting or recurrent dizziness
-blood or fluid coming from the nose or ears
- large bumps or bruises on areas other than the forehead - especially in infants

a good rule of thumb is when in doubt, get it checked out!
