(or Baseball, I hear those mom's are all at the field also. Happy Baseball Mother's Day to you!)
For all the sports Mom out there today whether on the Pitch or the Diamond here is a my gift to you.
A Concussion Evaluation questionnaire to keep in your sports bag. Number two son came home from yesterday's game saying he was "evidently" hit in the head by another player.
How do you get hit and the head and not know it? This is the dramatic son so don't think that I called 911 or that my husband, who was in charge at the time, was completely lacking. My husband is making the "faker" face as I am asking my son some questions.
Information on concussions is ever changing and I thought it was helpful after seeing an actual concussion evaluation from the Concussion Clinic at Children's Hospital. It looked rather like a DUI test. Not that I have had one, but I have seen COPS in my lifetime. The following .pdf is the mental evaluation or questionnaire that can prove very helpful to parents or coaches if you are A. on the field or B. have crappy insurance like us and afraid of a $1500 bill from Children's unless you really need it.
