Bump on head, normal while sleep, vomiting, dilated pills. Will he be okay?

My son is 8 months old and rolled off the couch today and hit a toy. He immediately started screaming so I picked him up. He cried for what seemed like forever! He know has a large quarter sized raised bump on his head. Right after the fall he got really sleepy and took a nap. I monitored him while he was sleeping and he seemed normal as far as breathing. He did though take an abnormally long nap. I called his doctors office they said to watch for vomiting and dilated pupils. Should I be worried about the size of the bump on his head and his sleeping?
