I am sure it is okay, the blinking was probably happening before the fall, but just in case I would recommend calling her doctor. You don't want it to be a hematoma or some other unseen injury. Usually concussions are obvious, like glassy eyes, or throwing up, however, sometimes it can take a couple of days for more serious signs to show up.
In the meantime, keep doing what you are doing, and watch her VERY CLOSELY.
