I am still freaking out about this. My boyfriend is a farmer and I was helping him drive the tractor. We were putting grape posts in and I thought he told me to reverse to miss a vine, but he was actually moving his head forward to put a staple in the post. I smushed his head between the post pounder and the post and he flew backwards!!!!!!!!! I thought I killed him.
Now his head is all swollen. Thank GOD that he is ok…I couldn’t even talk for an hour because I was in such shock from almost killing my best friend and love of my life.
SCARIEST THING EVER. I just had to vent about it. Thanks for listening! hopefully I am the only one who will almost kill their SO tonight! :/

@Tatertot2003: Yikes! Not a good thing. However, if he was hit in the head you need to keep an eye on him to make sure he doesn’t develop a progressive concussion tonight. The best information for a list of symptoms to wash for can be found by googling “SCAT3” and going to the last page. But here are a few things to watch for tonight:
ringing in the ears
sore neck and shoulders
feeling unusually fatigued
lack of ability to focus
Also make sure to check for full consciousness and the ability to respond to questions in a logical manner every couple of hours. Yes this means during the night too. Good luck!

@Tatertot2003: Oh, my God, how frightening. Thank goodness he is OK!
I second the advice about keeping an eye on him for a potential concussion.
Ugh, my SO had a near-death experience associated with work once, though it was no one’s fault, and I remember how terrifying and upsetting that was! It has to be worse when it was your mistake that caused an accident. =( I can imagine how awful you feel. Make youself (and obviously him) feel better by lavishing him with care and love!
I hope he recovers quickly.

Jesus Christ. I would still be bawling if I was in your situation. So glad he is okay.
My FI, upon reading this, just groaned for like fifteen seconds straight.

@trainergirl: He won’t let me do it! He is trying to finish a presentation that he has to do at work tomorrow (he also has a day job) and he said he is too busy and he doesn’t have a concussion…He also took about 30 seconds to tell me when his birthday is. I am going to be flipping out all night.
Thank God I am a teacher and I don’t have to work tomorrow…I am going to be sitting up all night watching him. AHH

@Tatertot2003: I think the I don’t have a concussion response is a typical guy thing! I work with a men’s team and that is always the first thing out of their mouths when they take a head hit. Good thing you have the time to keep an eye on him, the first 24-48 hours are always the most dangerous for late onset haemorrhage.

@Tatertot2003: Aaack he took 30 seconds to tell you his birthday? Honey, you need to put your foot down! You were afraid of losing the love of your life, but if you let him fall asleep it still might happen!
Anyhow, what an awful experience for you, you poor thing! I can’t imagine how those moments after felt. Hugs!

He needs to get checked out.

I cannot even imagine your shock – so glad he is doing well.
But seriously – Go to the doctor. Even if they don’t find any type of bleeds or large-scale trauma, it’s best to let them check, but if those things ARE there they can be silent until it’s too late. Better a night at the hospital and a missed presentation than dying from stubbornness.

PLEASE take him to the ER. He really needs to be checked out to make sure he isn’t bleeding in his brain.
