Joshua vs. the Baseball

Joshua had his first big accident playing baseball! He was playing short stop and a line drive took a bad hop straight into his eye.

He instantly got a huge goose egg right above his eye! We went to the Emergency Room followed by a visit to a specialist the same night.

He has a hyphema in his eye (bleeding internally) and his pupil is not working.

He is on bedrest for the next seven days! Oy! Which includes no baseball and no school! He is thrilled!

Keep your fingers crossed that the bleeding stops and that the pupil works again!

The most amazing thing happened though... the other team signed their game ball and gave it to him! What a tremendous show of sportsmanship!
