Scary call from football practice!!

His coach called the house, Ds was hurt in practice. He had a hard hit by two guys and had injured his neck. The coach immediately took him in, the trainer was there with them too. He is OK, just sore and stiff. He was told not to lay down, but ice it and sit up, take some Tylanol, watch TV or playing the computer. He is taking the playing video games very seriously.   He says it is sore still tonight.  He has to report to the trainers first thing tomorrow morning. At a high school athletes parent's meeting tonight a mom came and asked how he was doing, her son said he was worried about ds!!  His coach called and the trainer called tonight to see how he is doing as well.

How scary!  Do you think you'll take him to the doctors to get it checked out?  I hope he's feeling better today, sounds painful. 

Connor started practice today, he's on the 7th grade team.  He was exhausted because he wasn't in shape but at least he stuck to it.

Glad he stuck it out. Ds is just fine. He went to the trainer today and she told him no practice with pads for the today or tomorrow. He is on a maybe status for Saturday's scrimmage. She will let him know tomorrow.

Flag football is pretty tame compared to tackle. It's a fun game to watch, my youngest wants to try it out this spring.

I hope he's doing okay now. How did his re-check go yesterday?

Football is one sport my boys have never shown an interest in. I can honestly say that I'm okay with that. LOL!

He is cleared to play. He feels fine. He felt still stiff over the weekend. It was funny, he picked football, not me! We like football but are not huge fans.
