I’m worried about Quintus’ knee. He hurt it last week Thursday in a rugby game. Very first scrum of the game. Unfortunately there were no replacement players and he had to finish the game. Which he did and I think he ended up playing a good game too. That night though, he couldn’t walk and Friday morning he was even worse.
I kept him out of school and thankfully with the long weekend, he didn’t have to do much but rest. Unfortunately though, the knee did not heal up as I had hoped. It was still swollen and he can still not put his full weight on it. After speaking to the doctor’s assistant last Friday, she said I didn’t have to take Quintus to see him as there’s not much that they can do.
Well today I took him to another doctor and he is not happy. He says by now (a week later) it should have healed up and he is worried that there is a tear in his ligament or even worse that he has injured his cartilage. He is on medication now and if by Sunday his knee is not significantly better, he has to be admitted to hospital so that they can do a scope.
He has a rugby game tomorrow and was so hoping that his doctor would tell him he can just bandage it and play. However, he said there is NO way he is playing tomorrow and so far, not next week either. He immediately got tears in his eyes. I felt so very sad for him. I know how important his rugby is.
We’ll be there tomorrow. To support his team. I do hope his knee will heal up before next week. I really don’t want him to have serious damage to that knee.
