    The grandmother of the injured player said that the pressure/swelling was now an 11, which was their target number. This is a horrible thing to happen to anyone, especially a kid. The road to recovery will be a long one for sure. The best thing at this point is for everyone around him, to stay positive and as strong as they can considering the nature of the injury. With faith and prayer, the kid will get through this.
