It is VERY scary that you can hit your head and cause internal bleeding without realizing that it is so dangerous!


A couple weeks ago (I'm a total klutz!) I slammed the top of my head into the corner of a kitchen cabinet.  Man, that hurt so bad!  I can still feel the place where it hit (small dent).  Then, a day or two later I hit my head in a similar area (top of head near front) and, thankfully, that one wasn't nearly as bad.


I've never been one to run to a doc for every little thing, so it never would have occurred to me to do that.  I'm using me as an example because I imagine a lot of people would just think like I did - ow, that hurt and then you forget about it and move on.


I wonder if he went to the hotel and hit his head, shortly before going to bed, or what the deal was.  Maybe he called his wife and told her and that's how we know, then he went to sleep.

OK lesson learned, go to the doctor no matter what.  Our bodies aren't as tough as we'd like to think they are.  Get a doctor to ok you by checking you out and letting you go home. You only have one body and one life, take care of it!

Sounds like something best to let R.I.P.  No need to ask questions probably, just think good thoughts for the family and friends at this point.

I thought the story about the last texts he received from the actress who played his daughter on full house was odd.


‘Full House’ Star Candace Cameron Bure Reveals Last Text Messages With Bob Saget Before His Death: ‘We Got Into a Little Tiff’


I think this cause of death may or may not be true but they need to move on for insurance purposes.

@lovescats   That is only one line from that text and posting this is taking the whole story out of context.  The "tiff" happened two weeks before his death.



Bure, 45, revealed that she and Saget had had a small argument just two weeks before his sudden death but resolved the issue over text. “We were going to have dinner,” recalled Bure. “And we got into a little tiff. And his flight was delayed. We ended up not having dinner. But in Bob fashion, the next day he wrote me, like, what would be pages long of a text. And he was apologizing, saying he was cranky and he was just so sorry.”


Bure went on to say that Saget likened his cranky behavior to that of his late mother, Dolly, who died in 2014, and that he told her: “I love you more for the trouble you’re giving me, if that’s even possible.”


The actress responded with, “I love you. I could never be mad at you. Roll my eyes at you? Yes. But never mad. And I love that (you’re being like) Dolly. That made me laugh out loud. I loved your mom.'”

Nothing suspicous about Candace at all.

Going to a doctor or hospital would not have helped me in 2008.  I hit my head on the hollow metal shower door handle the night before Thanksgiving.  It made a clang sound, but did not really hurt that much (I have been hit in the head with a baseball bat, accidentally and was fine)  A few days after, my DH asked how my head was.  I felt a slight knot where it hit, but  thought nothing more of it.


Fast forward to the week of Christmas, I am not one to get a headache, but I developed one that would not stop.  I felt faint, which was new for me, twice during that week.  Luckily, I work for surgeons who finally ordered a CT for me on the Friday before Christmas as our party was that night and they wanted to be sure before we closed for the four day holiday.  Lo and behold, I had been bleeding for four plus weeks!  When the neuro surgeon saw the CT, he was the FIRST to say it was "old blood" and that I had been bleeding for weeks.  DH and I knew immediately when it had happened.


The surgeon told me that if I would have had a CT or the like when it happened, it would probably not have shown yet.  


What I WILL say and I tell everyone-watch for a change in personality.  I was not the same during those four plus weeks, and post surgery, it took me about two years to be back to my normal self.


If anyone you know or love have a similar incident, watch for personality changes!

I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend, til death, your right to say it

My Gyn doctor, a popular and well-known member of the medical profession, fell off a small step ladder and hit her head.  Her fellow doctors advised her to get a CT scan but she shook them off.  Two days later she died.  She is missed by so many, including me.

Over 20 years ago I was mugged in a grocery store parking lot by two punks who knocked me to the ground and stole my purse.  When the aide car arrived and checked me out they advised me to go to the ER and have a CT scan to rule out a possible head injury.  After spending time in the police station giving my report I felt good enough to drive the short distance home.  When I got home my husband drove me to the ER and they did a scan.


Fortunately it turned out fine and my only injury was a cut to the back of my head. Aside from being totally shook up I felt fine but I was glad that I went to the hospital.


Needless to say the punks were never caught and probably went on to do the same to another unsuspecting woman.

I’ve hit top of my head bending up from vegetable bin on freezer door! Now I try to be aware of that.

All things considered, it seems like a pretty good way to go.

There are quite a few frightening stories here.  I'll be thinking of these posts if I hit my head and be sure to see a doctor.  Scary.
