No Surprises Here!
There wasn't a hockey stick involved, but there was an ice rink. With four days left until we head to Italy, Maggie has a concussion. She went ice skating with the young women on Wednesday night, and, as she was getting off the ice, fell backwards hitting her head and bumping up her knee. We made a trek to the doctor yesterday and were told to just watch her for increased nausea or other symptoms. I watched today as she got dizzier and more nauseous, and then finally made the call to the doctor. By 4:45 we were in the hospital and by 5 she was having a CT scan done. Now we wait the word from the radiologist. We're hoping she'll get the all-clear for travel, but she has assured us that if she can't go, she still wants all of us to go without her. Maybe we'll just share the pain meds on the plane ride and buoy each other through the experience.
