…went the summer as one of the kids suffered injuries that have ended his – and our – summer. The accident resulted in a significant orthopedic injury that terminated any plans for baseball or scout camp, as well as any other physical activity. But insult to injury was a concussion that meant that the mental activities that could relieve boredom – television, reading, computer – are also out the window as brain rest is required while the brain heals and sorts itself out.
We are fortunate however, in that it could have been far, far worse. So we’ll take the hit and give thanks for what we have, and I’ll go back to the role of nurse.
