Here’s the update from the ER, there was no John Carter or Meredith Gray to be seen. I’m only kidding. When you’ve been in two urgent cares and three ERs, humor is key.
Goalielocks has been discharged from the ER. Thankfully, the CT scan showed no abnormalities or bleeding. For us it was a major relief. While they were clear in Mass General that there was no bleeding, this scan erased all doubts that Goalielocks or I had. There’s no more lingering “what if they were wrong mom” questions. Peace of mind is everything especially when it comes to your child with an injury.
The bad news is he could be symptomatic for weeks to come. Moreover, he’ll likely need some accommodations at school during this post concussion period. Additionally, our ER doctor referred him to the concussion clinic for further treatment. This way we can ensure he has a good treatment plan and that his progress is being monitored by concussion experts.
Concussions are no joke. He’ll be off the ice and out of contact sports for at least two more weeks. We’re not in a hurry to put him back out there. We want his brain to be fully healed before he hits the ice again. We’d like to thank everyone for their support and prayers.
