In brief: Head Injury

If the injury is more than 24 hours past you can let her sleep.
If not the following is best advice: if she is throwing up she needs to get to the er. If she is not throwing up you can let her sleep, but please wake her up every two or so hours to make sure she is able to be roused awake. After 24 hours the worry lessens.
