I think it’s over
I think Quintus has to accept that he won’t be playing any more rugby this season. His knee got hurt right at the end of the game today. He couldn’t even walk off the field and was carried by one of the dads. I immediately took him to the doctor who suggested Quintus stop for this year.
There isn’t much they can do for the knee but let it rest. He has to wear a knee guard, has TransAct patches he has to put on and medication he needs to take.
He is only 10. I really don’t think it’s worth permanent damage to that knee.
I do feel very very sad for him. His rugby is such an important part of his life. He organizes life around rugby. Now he will stand on the side-line, supporting his friends.
(This was after he went to the doctor. The doctor just helped him back to the bakkie)
