Drama This Week!

There's been LOTS going on at my house this week! Monday night, my son had a softball game and was hit in the left upper cheek by a softball as he was running across home plate! I absolutely froze in my tracks because when it hit him, it sounded just like the ball had hit a cement wall! Poor Hunter momentarily lost his hearing and kind of stumbled around a little bit, but in his usual fashion started insisting that he was okay. OKAY????? I think NOT! His left cheek started swelling and within an hour his eye started turning black. Of course we put ice on it, but his cheek has been swollen most of the week and is finally starting to go down. That black eye, though, is going to hang around for awhile! After a CT scan, we learned that he fractured the eye orbit. OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hang in there, Hunter! You're a trooper and everyone on the Kirksey ball team said you took that hit like a champ! They are also thanking you for "taking one for the team"! They won the game, by the way!

Ohhh, this photo of Hunter makes my old knees hurt. Give him a cyber hug for me.

Way to take one for the team, Hunter, AND your run scored! I'm so proud of my Hunter-bear. :o)
