Head concussions and broken bones

What a week we have had at the Barker's. Meaghan had come with me to pick up Kenzie and Cayla and she hopped out of the car to go and see some of her friends from Excel. This boy decided that he was going to start kicking his foot over the kids head. Well, he came up to Meaghan and tried to kick his foot over her, she moved because she did not want him to kick her and he ended up kicking her right in the side of the head. She started getting a pretty bad headache and called me from school the next day because she did not feel well and her head hurt. I took her to the doctor and she said that Meaghan had a concussion. I think that Meaghan was a little embarrassed because I called the boys family, I was not trying to get him in trouble I just wanted them to explain to him that he cannot kick people because someone can get hurt.

Later during the week Kenzie had a tournament and played the first game and the next day during the game she ended up hurting her knee. She was running with the ball and I am pretty darn sure that she would have ended up with a goal. Anyway, she said that she felt that the ball was going a little to fast for her to control it. Next thing I knew the ball had knocked her right on her back, she immediately grabbed her knee and started crying (very loudly). We drove her to Children's Hospital and they examined her knee and said that she sprained it and sent us home. A couple of hours later a doctor from Children's called us and asked us to bring her back in because she broke her knee. I was a little upset because why did they let us go home (Children's is so far since they moved) and doesn't anyone review the films? We explained that she was finally resting and that we would be very close to them in the morning. The doctor said since she was resting it was fine to bring her in the morning. She had an knee immobilizer put on her knee and needs to see the orthopedic doctor next week.
