Bleeding Cut on the Head!

06/07/2010

Question:

My little sister hit the back of her head (near the nape of her neck) on the edge of a wooden table(rather hard). Her head was bleeding from the cut caused by the fall; it seems a little deep. After I applied ice and a pad to her head, my sister fell asleep. An hour later or so, she woke up again. She`s talking fine and she remembers everything, and she`s active and can walk. She seems perfectly okay, but I`m afraid that she might still be suffering internally. Could this be a lucid interval? Or is she really okay?
