Healing Darkness

The kind of text I hate to get Russ and I got late last night. “I just got hit in the head in basketball.” Another concussion for Carter. It was too late to go up to Camp last night. I texted her this morning. Still bad so I jumped in the car and went out to Camp and picked her up.

We are well versed in the concussion protocol, but I still took her to the doctor to make sure that it is nothing worse. She is wearing her sunglasses to help her brain. Thankfully a dark room, low sounds, no screens should help my poor baby heal. The good thing is I am home to take care of her and I get a few unexpected days with her.

No matter how old your children are they are still your babies. I just want to fix things and take care of her. With a concussion she still wants to be taken care of. Just means I cancel all the mundane things I had to do and go into full time Mommy role. The hardest part is letting her be alone and not talk to her even though she is right here.

    Oh Dana I am so sorry to hear about Carter’s latest concussion challenge. I serve as the Board Chair of our four local hospitals that make up Quinte Health Care and just had a conversation with a Neuro-Phsycologist on the subject of brain injuries. He stressed the importance of taking a year of care post-concussion to let the brain heal.
