On the beginning kick off he was hit and fell onto his wrist in a very bad way. He looks white huh? Well, he almost passed out and then it took about an hour before he didn't feel like he was going to puke and started to get color back. Very painful injury indeed.
Here he is after we finally took his stuff off and his dad (aka Head Coach) gave him his sunglasses.
We gave him some Gatorade and I kept track of his neuro status, which is a fancy med-speak way of saying I asked him every once in a while how he was feeling. Lots of parents were concerned and he ended up with plenty of blankets and lots of advice. Finally he decided he could sit up, right around half time.
He wanted to stay and support his teammates, which did an excellent job even without their tallest man on the line. Olympus won by about 3 touch downs. It was one of the best playing I had seen them do. Props to the great coaches, especially Daniels dad, Bill and his brother, Austin. After the game we headed to St. Marks (the U's ER was busy) and had it XRay'd.
The swollen arm.
Thumbs up for quick service at St. Marks!!
Not a fracture, just a bad sprain. Of course we will have it checked out if they are wrong and it's still swollen in about 3-5 days.
The good news is, we scored this sweet arm brace in dark blue AND he may be able to play next Saturday!! If they win next Saturday, it's off to the playoffs.
