Anything you can do I can do better

Not that there's a lot of sibling rivalry between my kids, I mean, they are eight years apart. But my daughter is determined to skate at least as well as her brother, play sports better, and have more epic injuries.

With Josh I only had to watch him for a few hours or overnight to make sure he only had a bumped head and not an actual concussion.


But my daughter ... a trip to the ER, two days later a follow-up with her regular doctor that leads to a week of bed-rest. Have you ever tried to make a 10 year old not suffering from a fever stay in bed??? It's impossible! (OK, not bed-rest per se, but the girl won't stay down and rest!!)  The weekend will be a long one for her. And she's going to miss out on a field trip to the California Science Center before she's cleared to go back to school. Guess what I will be doing this summer? But that's OK, because I love the Science Center and all the museums at Expo Park. 

Joy is so bored she asked for all of her homework for the week. I guess there's only so much Netflix even she can watch.

Do you have any tips for recovering from a concussion?

  1. A TV addict that I am, I never thought I'd say this but while sitting out a bout of vertigo, there really can be too much TV. Sorry that Joy has to go through this...and you, of course. I'd recommend books for Joy and wine for you. ;-)

  2. Yeah, she has homework from this week and she had Hank take her to the library to pick up three more books. She can only read/watch for a few hours before she gets a headache.

  3. The first stage following a head injury is to ensure that the acute injuries are being appropriately catered for by the hospital facilities. Victims of moderate or mild injuries may be discharged with no or inadequate advice and information only to experience physical, mental and emotional difficulties
