I am in need of some help...
At my son's wrestling tournament yesterday, one of his fellow wrestlers had a REALLY rough day. He got poked in the eye during his first match, and then thought he broke his jaw during the same match. Bless his heart, he wanted to continue wrestling the rest of his matches (his Dad's an EMT & present, so who were we to judge?). As the day went on, he continued to become more pale and complain of the pain in his face.
During his 4th match of the day, the coach "threw in the towel" and wouldn't let him continue. His parents wanted to leave right then to get him checked, but he convinced them to let him stay for his final match to "take a forfeit", so the team would get the points (no actual wrestling involved).
He ended up 4-1 on the day - his only loss being the match his coach made him quit. He went to the local ER to get checked and then was referred to the closest Children's Hospital. He does have a broken jaw & a scratched cornea (from the poke in the eye). They don't think they will have to wire his mouth shut, because it was a clean break & open fracture. They are giving him massive antibiotics as well as antibiotic eye drops. Now they are just waiting to see the specialist to see what he says.
Now, my question...
What can I make as a "get well soon" kind of gift. I know when my son had a really rough tournament, I made him a "That Sucks" sucker bouquet. My guess is that he won't be able to eat anything like a sucker even if his mouth isn't wired shut. He is so bummed that his season might be over.
Do any of you creative lurkers have any suggestions? Any help or ideas to help "springboard" my creative juices would be much appreciated.
