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.

Well glad it doesn't sound too serious and so nice that people called to check on him. We had a kid get a consussion during a play off game in baseball. It was on the other team but a friend of my son's from school. He was so worried I had promised I would call the next day and when we got up at 7am he was like call but the kids mom works nights so I delt with the pestering until a time I felt ok to call. Even our coach was pretty shaken up. Could have very easily been any of the kids and thats when the parent in the couch comes out which is refreshing to see sometimes.

Hope all is well...

We have seen a few kids head to the er. Ds had two concussions over the years, but never in a game. It is scary. It was sad that a kid died from a snapped neck last week in Atlanta during practice.
