Basketball Practice Disaster!!!

Mikaela had basketball practice last night.. It started at 6pm, at 615 we were on the way to the ER! Right when we walked in she got smacked in the face with a ball, I should have known it was going to be one of those nights!! At 615 she was chasing after her ball, the team on the other side of the court started running laps around the gym (8 year olds, GRRR!!) Mikaela was hit head on and flew back busting the back of her head. We spent a lovely 6 hours in the ER. Mikaela had a CT Scan which came back good. She has a swollen nose, 2 small black eyes, a bump on the back of her head and a concussion.

Since we were already there we registered Frankie who hasn't been doing too good, he has an upper respiratory infection.

Monday morning I will be making phone calls! They practice at an elementary school GYM, its not huge. To have kids running around when there are 3 and 4 year olds practicing is ridiculous.. Because of the size of the Gym, these kids were actually running on the court. GENA IS ANGRY!!! We were so lucky that it wasn't any worse! The girl who ran into her (big girl!) hurt her shoulder , she too was crying! I'm not sure if she will be continuing this season, it was very scary!!! I don't know who cried more, Mikaela or I!

Poor girl. That is not good. I hope they do something to make it safer for the little ones to play.
