While in the gym for Health class, a boy kicked a volleyball and it smacked DD in the head. She has a concussion. (Anyone else catch the irony of getting a mild traumatic brain injury during "Health" class???) I'm also worried she has whiplash. Her head hurts. Her nose hurts from where her glasses rammed into her nose and she has pressure behind her eyes. Her neck hurts. I'm kind of freaking out. It seems to be mild, but I'm worried. And I know things could be worse, but for her, this is the "worst" in her life, if that makes sense. I'm worried about how this may affect her. I'm nervous about how she'll handle going back to school (they have iPads for classwork/homework and they have Smart Boards instead of blackboards, so she can't do anything but sit with her desk facing the wall instead of the teacher). Anyone have advice they can share? Someone needs to help me re-frame my thinking and get my mind off the Google horror stories I've read. She has an appointment at the concussion clinic on Monday. I spoke with one of the nurses today and she was very reassuring that I'm doing the right things, but of course the Mama Bear in me is freaking out. Thanks for any help you can give!
