Relieved!


We had a bit of a scare this week. Ryan had to come out of Friday night's game with a knee injury. By the time we got home from the game, his knee was swollen up like a balloon! We immediately put him on crutches, but had to wait the weekend to find out about it. Today, he had an x-ray and an MRI, and luckily there was no bone damage and no tears!

As crazy as it sounds, I've never worried about Ryan being injured. He's a lineman, so I don't think about it as much as I do with our QB, or our running backs and receivers who are just out there wide open waiting for someone to hit them. So waiting in the stands, watching the team doctor taking care of him was almost surreal.

I'd like to let everyone know how much I appreciate all the well wishes and positive vibes that came our way! So many people called to check on Ryan, and asked about him when they saw us. Thanks everybody!!!

WHEW! That is good news! I would have been terrified with the knee swelling like that- that's what my dh's did in high school when he tore his MCL. EEK. So glad to hear he isn't seriously injured- and what a great shot of him! I love that "game time" emotion! :)

Phew! Its so hard to watch our kids out there, and sometimes they will get hurt. I am so happy that is ok! I know girls can play football now, but I hope mine stick to soccer!

Glad he's okay and it wasn't a Tom Brady-ish injury! I don't worry too much either--my kid's such a moose I worry more about him hurting someone else. :-D

Awww...put tears in my eyes. I am sooo thankful it was not torn. One more week of rest and he will be back at 'em. We have to get him playing both ways!
