Denial or just plain stupid?

I was just forwarding the great "How to monitor a baby after a hard knock to the head," instructions we received in the ER after MZ took her noggin knock, when I realized why we had been sent up for a CT scan: the doc had just run through the list of stimuli and gotten no response.

Some level of shock must have prevented me from making that connection in the hours and days after her accident. I'm pretty happy I didn't make the connection right there in the room or I never could have remained calm for the scan. But oh my, the realization itself had a physical effect beyond this head cold: a visceral feeling of relief that it was not as he must have feared, that MZ is okay.
