A Post about the Kid

We had quite the little scare with the teenager a couple of days before Christmas. My step son decided that jumping onto a moving car would be a hoot. Not so much. His friends and him were goofing around and he jumped onto the trunk of his buddie's car, just as it was about to be gunned forward. My step son smacked his head on the pavement (literally). He actually cracked his skull and was bleeding out of his eardrum. His friends rushed him to the hospital, and my husband and I were the ones his friends decided to notify first. We flew out of the house and when we got there, they had him in a neck brace. Talk about having a panic attack...

It turned out that the neck brace was just a precaution, but they did do Xrays and later an MRI and a CTI Scan. They said he would be fine, but then the next day he started developing this weird face-thing. His eyes did not blink at the same time, and his smile was crooked. Face paralysis. GREAT. After seeing a specialist, they told us he got really lucky. He will be fine. Thank God. There was a funny part - he was wearing a T-shirt that said "I do my own stunts" the day of the accident. It was a little comical seeing it all bloodstained in the hospital.

Here is a picture of the delinquents - Bill (my step son) is the one in the back in white. They are all in drama club together.

OMG, Cher. That must have scared the crap out of you guys!! I'm so glad he's okay. yeesh. I gotta admit the T-shirt thing is funny, though and it's obvious he's Jim's son. 8) Give your hubby a hug for me. That's gotta be a ROUGH experience on a parent.
xxoo.
