Kidlet Three has a concussion. A week ago in a hockey game he fell and slid into the boards. His body hit first but then his head, like whiplashed, into the boards. He has had a headache off and on for a week.
No hockey for him until the headache clears for at least 48 hours.
I would prefer he be done skating for the season.
The doctor wrote a prescription for school stating Kidlet Three couldn't participate in phy ed this week. According to my son, this is the worst prescription that ever could've been written. He loves phy ed and this is, in his words, torture!
Speaking of hockey, over the next couple of days I'll share some Hockey 101 with you.
Until then, pray that Kidlet Three remains symptom free and has no residual from this concussion.
