Here we go again

Since Wed. I have been in the Sacramento are--
My oldest grand child (almost 10) slipped off the monkey bars when he was swing SW backwards and wrapped himself over the ladder. Knocked the wind out of him, passes out, and vomited. After numerous test it was determined that he had bruised his pancreas. He has been on IV's and no food. They are hoping to add juice back in today (Sat) but depending what the pancreas does will depend how fast they proceed and bow much longer he is in the hospital. Oh yes -- he got moved to the third hospital yesterday. It's pretty rare to have this kind of injury in a child.
We were told last night no bikes skateboards or any activity he might fall for 3 months. Did I mention he is almost 10. I think the new bike sitting in our garage will wait for Christmas and it will be a really long 3 months. We are hoping food goes well. He has been a real trooper. I am helping with his sister and back and forth to the hospital. Not much exercise so maybe October will be my month

    That sounds scary, I am surprised there are not more monkey bar injuries, I can remember swinging upside down and hanging from my knees. Maybe trade that bike in for an ipad, certainly would take the sting out of 3 months of inactivity.
    Hope all goes well.

    I hope everything turns out okay!

    I predict lots of movies and video games in his future. : )

    Or bubble wrap. But I would think that would encourage him.
