Grace Anderson doesn’t remember falling and hitting the back of her head on the sidewalk several years ago.
After a foggy ambulance ride to the hospital, doctors ordered an X-ray and CT scan, and closed the wound on the back of Grace's head with 15 staples.
Test results, as well as Grace's symptoms, led doctors to diagnose her with a concussion.
