Jackson called home during football practice this evening saying he had hurt his arm. Shannon drove to Gladbrook, picked him up, took him to the office in Reinbeck, and x-rayed him. There doesn't appear to be any fracture, but it is quite swollen and painful. We've been electrical stimming it and icing it down alternately tonight. He's hoping to be able to play in his game on Thursday. Participation in tomorrow's practice is yet to be determined. We're very thankful it wasn't broken. Jackson would have been crushed. I don't think we've had a broken bone for over three years!
Oh, and just for the record, Jack didn't cry. We've told the boys they're not allowed to cry on the football field unless a bone is sticking out of their arm or leg.
As you can see, Shannon still has his remote! We've owned it for almost 12 hours now and it hasn't gotten lost.
Jack's not so sure he's going to be well enough tomorrow to do school...
