Scott's Such a Tough Kid!

On the evening of Scott's birthday he was at baseball practice playing 2nd base. A line drive was hit directly to him and guess what . . . he caught it w/ his face. That's right. It was an aweful sound when it hit him directly between the eyes. We rushed to the ER and they said that it was "significantly broken", but they wouldn't touch it b/c of the way it was broken. They suggested we see a specialist once the swelling was down. Today, Billy and I took him to the specialist and they said that they didn't see a need to set the bone or put a splint on it. The septum in the middle looked to be straight and not deviating to one side or the other (which is great). He felt through the swelling and down to the bone and said that as far as he could tell, the bone was straight. We are to watch for signs of anything looking crooked or not right once the swelling continues to go down and take him back if something looks to be "off". He released Scott to play ball as soon as he feels ready and boy is he ready. He actually went to ball practice on Monday night (shhhhh). He's a trooper and we're proud of the way he has handled himself. He and Clayton both have tournaments scheduled this weekend at different locations. Luckily Billy is off of work this weekend and we'll be able to each take them to their games. I'll get the picture of Scott off of his camera phone if I can and post it. It's a beaut!
