Well itís official, I have a concussion! After over rotating on a toe 7 and face planting about a week and a half ago, my head was still hurting and I was getting dizzy. So I went into the doctor, and after a cat scan, and a few other fun tests, they said the coconut was fine, but I did have a concussion. The part that sucks of course, which I was not aware of (first concussion), is that the concussion symptoms can last for months! But I am feeing better, and the medication for the dizziness has helped quite a bit. Just in time to put the boat away for the winter! :D

I am taking it easy for sure. Glad that season is ending, so I will not be tempted to go ride. Pretty crazy. It really wasn't that hard of a fall. I hit just right I guess. I wasn't knocked out, just dazed. But i kept repeating myself and asking what day of the week it was for about three hours. :confused:

Skeeler-Relax and have that pretty nurse give you a sponge bath. You will feel tons better. She may have to remind you of the bath later on but at least you were there. I hope you recover quick and keep your head up-Look down/Fall down!

The bad thing about concussions is they are additive normally. Did the doctor give any warnings about not wakeboarding anymore or did you tell him you fell down the stairs?

The worst part.........my nurse to help me through this troubling time :D , is in Chicago for the whole week for work. :mad: So it is me, my hurting / dizzy head, a six year old, and a three year old. Good times!:D Oh well, another week and we will be in the Bahamas.
I did tell them I was wakeboarding, and he said by all means do it again, just not in the next couple of months.
Hey resend me a new PM on the camera stuff.....I accidentally deleted the in-box. I think my concussion kicked in at that monment.

The effects of concussions are indeed additive, at least insofar as one only has so many brain cells to kill before one loses the piano lessons, and the brain sloshing tears more and more blood vessels with each successive concussion, making each successive concussion easier to get.

Fortunately, the 2008 model wakeboard helmets are VERY attractive...;)

I concur here. We have a rider/friend here in DFW who is still in a coma from a wakeboard crash in June. Protect your noggin! I am thinking I might be getting a helmet for Christmas from my Mrs.
