Trauma and the parent

We found out that Spencer has a concussion in addition to his broken nose. Even though this is a fairly run-of-the-mill sports injury, it has made me feel strange kinds of stress as a parent. A trauma to your child jars you in ways you can't fully understand. I have noticed that I have felt just a bit more emotional than normal. A trauma to the child is a trauma to the parent. I can only imagine what it is like when something major happens to your child. I hope I never find out.
