Something is Wrong with Nelson

Weirdest thing...

About 4 or 5 this morning, Nelson thought that he was hit in the head twice with a big stick and he saw a bright light. There is no mark on his forehead. His eyes are dialating correctly. But, he has a headache, blurry vision, and he has thrown up once. Our normal doctor is out of the office today. And, Paul thinks it might just be some kind of "flu." Paul prayed for/over Nelson. Will y'all pray for him too?

I don't need to tell you how much I don't want another sickness to run through my home right now! I have a pretty bad attitude right now, so please pray for me too.

----------

5:20pm update - Nelson has slept on and off all day. He has not played at all. He did eat a very small lunch at about 2. No more vomiting. I asked him if he has blurry vision still - he said "no." And, he says that there is no headache either. (We are a little concerned that he would lie to keep from going to the doctor). Overall, he seems to be feeling a little better. No other child has similar symptoms yet. If his head aches tomorrow, or he speaks or vision trouble again, we will likely take him to the doctor or ER. (Because, we realize that there is a minor chance of a serious neurological condition.) Otherwise, we hope this is a minor temporary affliction.

Could be... I get 'em from time to time. But, Nelson has never had one before. Time will tell. Thanks for your prayers.
