Blog Tours – Hayvens Blog

I found Hayvens blog ( https://hayveniverson.wordpress.com/ )  to be a enjoyable read. Reading about sports injury’s I found it interesting to read about because I used to be very active in sports (Specifically Boxing) but not so much anymore, just the gym now). Hayven talks a-lot about his first knee injury and bone bruises. The definition of bone bruises that Hayven got from University Of Rochester Medical Center was “A bone bruise is a traumatic injury to a bone that is less severe than a bone fracture. You might think of a black and blue mark on your skin when you hear the word bruise, but bruises can also happen in muscle and bone. This happens when an injury damages small blood vessels and causes blood and fluid to leak into the nearby tissues and blood vessels.” When we think of bone bruises we always think of a black and blue mark like if we fell and hit our knee. Hayven also talks about his first knee injury, which happened to be in Lake City (My old school k-9th). He says “We were stacking the box anticipating the run and I had gotten down blocked and at the same time, I had turned my back to that player. This meant he was pushing me from behind. I had planted my right leg in order to turn out of the block and get back to the play but the second I planted my leg I had instant pain. I had locked my leg out and down into the mud. I had immediate pain. I dropped down and Instantly knew something was wrong. This is the best way that I can describe the pain. Imagine taking a red-hot railroad nail and pounding it into your knee. Brutal?” I love the way Hayven wrote it, using descriptive words, helps us picture what was going on. Must of hurt pretty bad. I think Hayven did a really good job with all of the posts and it was all written very well and it was fun to read all of his posts.
