My Second Prince has Survived a Great Battle

Goodness gracious, life comes at you very fast.  My second Prince, who is nine years old, has just survived a great battle.

Two months ago, he tried a flip off a four-foot wall and landed on his back.  He didn't think much of it, but headaches started to be a daily occurrence.  My Queen finally decided to take him to a doctor on a particularly bad day, and they performed a CT scan and found a large subdural hematoma.

We life-flighted from our small town to a large pediatric facility and performed a craneotomy to evacuate the hematoma - the surgery took place yesterday.  They kept him in ICU overnight, and now we're back on a regular floor at the hospital while he recovers from his war wounds.
