Now for the reason why Dakota is not so happy right now. At the game the other night it was into the first few plays of the game that Dakota got hit really hard from behind and jarred his neck and head forward and hit from behind. He didnt think anything about it at first and kept playing and didnt say anything to anybody. A while later, he was lying on the sidelines, and trying to focus really hard. One of the coaches noticed him and examined him. He was having trouble focusing and everything was a little blurry and he was getting a headache. The coach had the nurse look at him and she said the same thing. They told him to sit out until he could focus. Well, this did not sit well with Dakota and he kept saying, “Im fine, I can play!” Head coach told him the same thing and he got mad. He waited as long as he could. Before we knew it, he put that helmet back on his head, and snuck back into the game. He got two more tackles and go hit a few more times himself. He came back in off the field and asked coach, we heard his tackles clear across the field. Then coach said, “Who was that?” The next thing he knows Dakota is coming off the field and says,”How did I do Coach?” Coach says, “Fine, but werent you just sittin” over there?” LOL He went on to play the rest of the game. We won, 36-12 GO REBELS!!!!!!!!!Photobuckethalf time pep talkPhotobucketpar

Later that night at home, his head was hurting and he was still having trouble focusing. He was a little dizzy. I gave him some ibuprophen and thought he would sleep it off. He got up yesterday morning and was still dizzy, slow, and still having trouble focusing. He went on to school. I was down at the barn doing chores smelling like goat, chicken and sweat. I got a call from Coach at school. He said Dakota was not acting right at all. He was very slow to respond to questions, react to things, dizzy, not focusing and had a headache. He said he was worried and I needed to come take him to have him checked. Talk about showering and changing in a hurry, not to mention flying to the school.par

We get to the drs office and my suspicions had been confirmed. He had a slight concusion. They were going to do a cat scan then another dr came in and examined him. He said his motor skills and reflexes was still there, they were just slow. If there had been no motor skills or reflexes he would have done a cat scan. He said every thing should get back to normal in a few days.However, he cannot play in tonights game and no practices until Monday when I take him back to reevaluate him. He is to take it easy even at home. He is very depressed and upset that he cant play. His coaches are trying to reassure him its ok, but hes just not having it. He keeps telling them, “I CAN PLAY!!!!” Bless his heart. I feel so sorry for him. Tonight is a special night. If we win this game we win the County. It is also 8th grade recognition. The parents get to escort our children out onto the field. We will let him suit up in uniform, but the coach is going to hide his helmet when the ceremony is done. If he doesnt, Dakota will have that thing on his head sneaking out there again. He will support his team and be cheering them on. par
par
His teachers are keeping watch on him for the next few days. If they notice any problems they will not hesitate to call. I have been staying close to the phone this morning, in case they do call. I know he is still depressed, but hopefully by this evening, he will cheer up some. par
par
He has watched the video of that nights game at least 10 times already. It was a good game. He did awesome.par
par
par
I will post pics of ceremony and let you know how we did. par
par
Hope everyone has a good day.par
