So after all the hiking and climbing during our vacation, Eric goes to the NYS Fair with his buddy Jack and falls coming down some bleachers. Jack and Eric make it to the infirmary who want to send him by ambulance to a Syracuse hospital. Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed as Eric got to the car. It was diagnosed as a fracture in the growth plate of his fibula. Since this was the same ankle that he severely sprained last fall the choice was a cast rather than a brace. After 3 weeks they will pull the cast and re-examine. Lots of physical therapy is probably in his future.
Eric expected to play JV soccer this fall, but that will not be possible.
