She turned out to have an epidural, the same as Natasha Richardson, but did very well.
But after hearing about Richardson's death, the McCrackens wondered if Morgan was really as OK as she seemed. After all, Richardson had been talking and lucid immediately after her fatal injury.When they went upstairs to kiss Morgan good night, she complained of a headache. "Because of Natasha, we called the pediatrician immediately. And by the time I got off the phone with him, Morgan was sobbing, her head hurt so much."
This is a weird case on several levels. She wouldn't even have qualified for a CT scan in the ER based on generally accepted criteria. The "lucid interval" is usually hours, not days. And young people -- kids especially -- have tight heads and generally worse outcomes than middle-aged or older adults. But it does highlight the value of education and public awareness.
