A Little Excitement to finish the weekend

Sunday dawned clear and sunny. Thought we'd take the grandkids to the park. It was in the low 40's at home. Colorado Springs (about 20 miles south, and 1000 feet lower) was not having a nice day. Overcast, 16 degrees. Really cold. Revamped the plans. Took the kids to a McDonalds with a Playplace for an hour. Not what we wanted, but what was attainable.

Back at home, we let the mama horses and the babies out. C stepped away from one of the racing around babies, slipped on the ice and fell flat on his back. When we got inside, after catching them and giving everyone water and some hay, we found that the back of his head was bleeding. He kept trying to go to sleep, and then complained that his vision was blurry.

Called the doctor's office, and the triage nurse said to go to the ER because of the blurry vision.
So, after several hours, and a cat scan, it was determined that he had a mild concussion. We got
prescriptions to fill, and then spent time trying to find a pharmacy that was open at 9 p.m. on a Sunday night. (Walgreen's, but only special Walgreen's). Finally got home about 10:30 and fed the poor dog. Bedtime was abuot 11, and the alarm went off at 5 a.m. this morning.

He has a headache, and I'm really tired after working all day........

More about the weekend later.
