My grandson has a moderate concussion and has to remain quiet for two to three days. No tv, cell phone, or computer and preferably stay in a dark room with someone to staying with him checking on him every little while. They did a scan at the hospital, but there is another test that needs to be ran He has to go to the doctor on Monday. I know my heart felt like it was in my stomach. They had just started his western pleasure class when it happened.
It was windy today and a chair blew into the metal fence that is around the arena, just as he was starting to put her into a lope. Needless to say she took off bucking and running. He stayed with her until his foot came out of his stirrup and that is when he went off landing on the side of his head and shoulder. He will have a black eye when he goes back to school. No broken bones but he will be sore. He almost had her back under control until his foot came out of his stirrup. I have to give him credit for the awesome job of trying. He had won first with her in halter showmanship so his day had started well at the show.
Of course little brother was worried about him. He told me that he couldn't even tell him what month or what day it was.That really bothered all of us so the decision was made to take him to ER. I stayed at their house with little brother and dad until they got home and I saw him for myself.
It is getting late and I need to try to get some sleep, but I thought I would let you know what I know now. I will let you know more when I do. Take care.
