I almost forgot to post tonight, so I’m getting this in just “under the wire”… or under the flags…
Last Wednesday I posted this picture. Carolyn had a good guess with a farmers’ market marker, but it takes a cross-country parent to recognize those flags! Melissa knew it was part of a course, although it wasn’t the finish line — just a marked section on a hillside. Here is the full photograph:
The Scout ran his first meet of the season last Wednesday. He’s had a late start due to his fall on July 3rd and subsequent concussion. His head started hurting 2/3 of the way through the 5k last Wednesday, although he did well on Saturday at his second meet. Unfortunately, he had to come home early from school today with a headache that got worse as the morning went on, so he did not race in today’s meet. After taking a 3-hour nap, he and SuperDad went down to watch and cheer on the team, however, because that’s what they do.
My understanding is that there really isn’t anything you can do to hurry up the healing from a concussion, but he’s got an appointment with the doctor in 2 weeks to discuss his progress and setbacks.
Glad they were able to get out and support the team. Concussions are such a bother…hope the Dr appt reveals good news.
I was hoping the concussion would be just a memory by now, however I do know that bad concussions do linger longer than most people realize. Keeping both you and The Scout in my prayers. Sending HUGS!
Wow, that was some fall he took. I hope the headaches will ease up soon 😦
