What happened....

Wow---sorry, I didn't realize that I left out HOW it happened.

They were playing a game in PE. Slin was running at an all out sprint when he tripped and went headfirst into a brick wall, at full speed.

The only thing he remembers is tripping and waking up to a bunch of people staring down at him.

One of the boys on our block, and on Slin's basketball team, said that there was blood everywhere (which is normal for a head wound). Last night, his school called me to check in on him. I can't imagine what it must have been like for the rest of the kids in his class.

One funny part is that while we were in the emergency room, and I was looking at his face....which is just JACKED UP. And I noticed his mouth....the teeth that had just spent the previous two years in braces, were perfect, not a chip or cut. I said to Slin, "Well, at least your teeth are ok."

OMG what a dreadful fright for you all - thank goodness he's ok (especially his teeth :P)

Reader's Digest version:

"How?"
Brick wall, full speed.

OMG!! What a story! Hope everyone's OK, especially the Boy and the Mom.

Ouch, hope he heals well. 13 year-olds are pretty resilient though..

Thank you for following up with the "how it happened".

What a dreadful experience. Luckily he doesn't remember it. He will bounce back.

Now you all can take a breather and get on with the healing. Best of luck with that.
