    Default And they say video games are bad for kids

    So Monday night my 15 y/o son is playing his PS2. He gets up to go to the fridge and trips over the cord to the controller, doesn't catch himself in time and lands face first on his moms solid oak coffee table, hits so hard he has what's called an "impact seizure" and passes out cold. His mom calls 911, they rush him to the local hospital. There they paralyze and sedate him, insert a breathing tube, connect him to a respirator and then airlift him to the major medical center where I work. So here I've been every night since Monday keeping a bedside vigil. They've done every scan and test in the book and so far everything has come back negative (thank you god). Now he has the breathing tube out and is finally starting to communicate but still fades in and out of awareness. When I got here tonight he stared at me for about 5 minutes and then said "can I have a hug?" I didn't know whether to laugh or cry! The docs say he's going to be fine but MAN! what a shitty couple of days this has been! So for all you linkers out there with kids who play video games, beware of "ATV Off Road Fury 3", it can be a little bit "trippy"!!!

    Jesus Dark....................sorry to hear about this. So, he's getting better, right? Any long term affects, expected?



    God, how scary this must have been!

    Here is to him having a very quick recovery, so he can get back to being a 15 year old boy!!!!

    Thanks guys.....yes, he is expected to make a full recovery without any permanent lasting effects. The siezure he had is the same kind that some boxers suffer when they get hit too hard in the face. It frigs them up for a few days but after they're fine.

    Man, that's awful. Sorry that happened to both of you.

    I trip over my cord all the time, but I usually just yank it out of the console.

    Damn, that's a pretty wild story! I'm glad he's alright though. It's not those trips that get you, it's the sudden stop at the end that does all the damage. Give him some Van Halen to listen to and he'll be fine!

    Darkstar,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
    I've got three boys 3,7, and 14, I'd go nuts if something like that happened to them. I am glad everything is looking good. Hang in there buddy!

    Thanks for the prayers guys, it really does mean alot to me. He had a good night, slept thru most of it, then woke up and told me to stop giving him a kiss because my breath stunk!!!! That tells me the smartass that he usually is, is still in there working his way out! You guys have a good day, I'm going home to get some shuteye and brush my teeth!! I'll be back tonight with an update.

    Man, I look at my son everyday and say to myself, my life would be in the dark if something ever happened to him. He is the light God gave me six years ago. I'm so glad your son will be playing his PS again.

    That's a complete freak accident. I'm sorry to hear about it, Dark. Here's to a speedy recovery! Maybe taking your son off roading for real will be less dangerous?
