Sam’s not-so-excellent adventure

May 5, 2009

NYOS (the charter school the kids attend) has a tradition where each year the senior class makes a video that they show at graduation. Last Tuesday they were working on the video, and they had a dolly-thing to hold and steady the camera, with weights to balance the camera. However, the weights weren’t attached securely, and one of them fell of and landed on Sam’s head.

They tried to convince him that he should go to the emergency room, but he wouldn’t let them so Coach brought him home. I was at home telecommuting (but without a car.) He was still bleeding so I told him to take a shower, but when Julia got home an hour and a half later, it was still bleeding, so after picking up the rest of the kids she took him to the emergency room where they gave him five staples.

Metal head.

Metal head.

    Yikes!!! Tough guy, my kids would have been screaming bloody murder. He’ll never forget–or maybe he will, the senior class video!
