Adeline is a teenager trolling tonight......some poor teens have no life of their own. Her mom probably needs to be on here asking for advice or that poor kid is headed for troubled waters :(

Anyway, we all screw up at least once. Don't beat yourself up over it. If she seems fine, she probably is, but do keep a close eye on her tonight. If you notice ANYTHING different, take her in immediately.

If you think she may have a concussion take her to see a doctor. You don't need to go to the ER, an Urgent Care center will be fine, or if her regular doctor's office is open (not sure what time zone you are in) you can call them and they will check her out pretty quickly.

It is probably nothing, but it is always best to err on the side of caution.

Is there any swelling, bruising, or a lump? If so, definitely take her in right away. If not, keep a VERY close eye on her behavior--if she is sleepier than usual, fussier than usual, or not as fussy or active as usual take her in as well.

I'd say as long as she cried and her pupils react to light, she is probably fine. If you are that worried, call your pediatrician's office. They will let you know what to look for and help reassure you. I know this is scary.
