Thursday Thirteen #28

Edition #28, brought to you by my son's eye injury.

13 responses and comments about the baseball colliding with his eye.

1. Oh my gosh! (By far the most common reaction.)
2. I’m fine, mom. (And, believe it or not, he is!)
3. Tell him he should catch the ball next time. (This one from my step-son, the ER nurse. He is soooo funny! Not.)
4. Take him to the ER for a CT scan. (From my step-son’s wife, also a nurse.)
5. He needs to have his eye x-rayed to make sure there’s not an orbital floor fracture. (the coach.)
6. Put ice on it. (Duh!)
7. He could have a concussion. (He could, but he doesn’t, and I’m thankful.)
8. Is he throwing up? (no)
9. Did he pass out? (no)
10. It’s not like the doctor can put a cast on his eye. (This also, from my wise-cracking step-son.)
11. Wake him every two-three hours to make sure he’s coherent. (I didn’t.)
12. He’s gonna have a shiner for a while! (Ya think?)
13. Take him to the concussion center (yes, there is actually a clinic that does testing to make sure there are no lasting effects from a concussion. Got this info from the nurse at my school.)
This is day 2. Scroll down for day 1 in my Wordless Wednesday post.

Poor thing. Does it look worse than it feels?

Lucy said...

poor guy! That has to hurt so badly! Before you know it mom, he will be bragging about the black eye that he HAD! Men love to add up all the injuries through their lives! He will be okay! xo

YellowRose said...

Bet he wears it like a trophy! My son had a few of those during his baseball playing years. Glad it wasn't more serious!

Happy TT!

Brenda ND said...

Oh your poor son. Hope it looks worse than it feels.

On a limb with Claudia said...

You don't say how he is doing... Today is really the tell all day. Is he doing all right?

Happy TT!

Nina Pierce said...

That's too funny ... okay, it's not funny, but people do say the most obvious things! Poor thing. Was it a badge of honor or was he embarrassed?

Lori said...

Poor baby...that looks like it hurts:( Happy TT. I hope he's feeling better:)

Cecily R said...

I'm going to echo #1 on your list...Oh. My. Gosh!!!! That is a beastly injury!!

Hope he feels better soon!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Oh, man! I got it in the nose once, but it was in sixth grade and it wasn't thrown hard.

Well, at least he's got some war wounds. Think of it that way.

Hootin' Anni said...

poor babe!

Suzie said...

Everyone got a smart comment...not me though I tried...I got nothing

Sassy Mama Bear said...

I ranked a smart comment, shoudl I be honored? LOL
Looks like he is getting better already. Me, I would be black and blue for weeks, than a sick shade of yellow. I bruise too easily and too much. Great TT fodder though!

B Boys Mom said...

Nice black eye. I'm sure he has a great story to tell forever. Happy TT

Denise Patrick said...

Glad he's okay. It will be a story to tell when he's older. I was once hit by a tennis ball in the eye - it was NO fun. And, baseballs are harder!

Happy TT!

Elaina said...

Aww. I hope he gets better soon

Redheels said...

Well for sure he is going to have a "shiner" for a while. Is he still wanting to play? In a year or so if he continues, he will be telling this story, making him a legend! :)

Elaine A. said...

Poor guy! It looks pretty bad but he seems that he's doing okay. Thank goodness!

giggles said...

Awe that is such a nasty owie!! Poor guy he won't forget this one, if he does you sure won't. Thankfully he's going to be fine. That is the hazard of sports, but baseball is so much fun!

Thanks for the tag it's a good one! I'll try to do it on monday!

Hugs Sherrie
