From Janis, child's age 12

After only a week of football practice, my son Paul was injured last Saturday. He ended up with a broken knee and other injuries. He was operated on and will have to remain off his leg for 8 weeks. Heʻs very depressed and discouraged. Iʻm unhappy for him and sad because he actually lost a couple of pounds during his first week of practice (the first time heʻs lost weight---two years ago he gained 33 pounds in 2 months and went from thin to obese and developed a huge appetite and itʻs been a struggle for me to keep his weight under control ever since). My sister-in-law and nephew spend all day with Paul while Iʻm at work. Heʻs supposed to use crutches but heʻs having a tough time getting used to them.
