What just happened?

Have you ever felt like this? I have, last Thursday. My dear, sweet, kind friend Misty was simply trying to get the ball up the field and away from our goal during our game last week when my face decided to get in the way. I saw Misty kick the ball and then I saw the lights up on the ceiling as I was laying flat on my back. The ball had picked me up off the ground and laid me out! It felt like I had been decked by the strong man at the circus! I got back up, shook my head, checked for a bloody nose, and kept on playing. I so wish someone would have caught that on video. I would LOVE to see it, over and over and over again. I'm still laughing about it! I went home, went to sleep, woke up in the morning, went to work, and then came home. I laid in bed all day long with the biggest headache ever, and I've had migraines for years! It hurt while I was I bed, but as soon as I sat up or got out of bed the pain multiplied even more. So Friday night I finally go to the doctor, and he tells me I have a concussion, gee, couldn't figure that one out on my own........ And gives me a shot for the pain and percocet to help more later. I love that guy! Here it is, four days later and my head is still killing me. There is an upside: it doesn't hurt to chew on the left side of my mouth any more.

Don't mean to laugh, but from one soccer player to another.. ha ha!

the concussion is not a laughing matter..

One day it was freezing, we were at a tournament, the ball came at me probably a million miles an hour, I stopped it of course with the inside of my leg, and bam.. I still have the imprints on my leg of a soccerball, it is the coolest thing in dah world!!!

Whoever took that photo should get an award. Oh, and I am anxiously awaiting your next post to see if there any lasting affects from the concussion... or the drugs :-)
