    This.

    I struggled the most with "I can't practice I am sick (coughs once)."

    Particularly if person was sick, but also attended school.

    In my head: "Okay but in 6th grade I cheered an entire game and was diagnosed with strep the next day."

    Then I had to remind myself that I was dumb, and when we know better, we have to act in the best interest of kids.

    Even if it is letting She Who Coughed Once sit out of practice one time so that the entire team does not end up coughing by next week.

    “She Who Coughed Once.” I love it.

    And I DID THAT STREP THING TOO! Cheering at a girl’s volleyball game. Freshman year. Felt feverish, sore, and just like a hot mess in general. But I was not fitting in with the team so I didn’t want to complain about feeling sick. So I stuck it out until I got home and my mom — who never once cut me any slack about being sick/injured, lest I be faking it — was like, “We’re going to the emergency room right now because I can see your inflamed tonsils in your neck.”

    So yeah, it’s very hard for me sometimes to tolerate it when girls approach me and say, a la Elton from Clueless, “My foot hurts. Can I go to the nurse?”

    Agree, and was thinking same. Maybe Morgan is back practicing with the team :)

    That part of the A. Hernandez documentary got to me too. I know Toradol (the shot they were getting) has been overused in the NFL, but to hear him talk about college kids lining up for their shot was incredible. Toradol is a VERY strong NSAID, and should only be used for acute pain. I've gotten 1 shot in my life, and it knocked me for a loop. I don't get how these kids were able to play a football game on it. Guessing their bodies were immune to the side effects.

    Hope your kiddo feels better soon. I've seen quite a few compression fractures in my line of work. Not fun.

    I don’t think Morgan has the big personality that the boys do, nor the media savvy Gabi does. She’s got a great story, but as far as being an “entertaining” guest, I can see why they’d pass her up. She seems like a bit of an introvert. I am too. And the idea of competing with LaDarius and Jerry for face time on a talk show makes me all hives-y.

    I agree with all of that. But Morgan and Lexi were both big stories on the show too and I guess their story is less familiar to me while I've seen Gabi for years in media. And you are right they are not media trained...but maybe she is too media trained? I am happy for all of their good fortune though and really enjoying their earnest reactions to the buzz around them.

    Yes! Toradol, I knew in the moment I didn't have the right word but meant to look back to fix it and never did. I have had Toradol before and it puts me right to sleep...I can't imagine being productive on it!

    And thank you!

    She may not, but Gabi comes off as an introvert too. Maybe it's because I know her story and it's boring, but I think Morgan would balance the boys better than Gabi is doing.

    I could easily be wrong, but it looks like Morgan, Shanna May, and three of the guy athletes went back to revisit the Ellen show and meet Kendall Jenner while Jerry, Ladarius, Gabi, and Monica were on the Today show.

    Toradol actually has no CNS effects. It’s wonderful for kidney stones, is non addictive, and you can give it IV and allow your patients to drive. Any “put me right to sleep” effects are either placebo in nature or simply the reaction your body has from being relieved from the pain and having an opportunity to relax.

    that being said...

    It would not be a great first line drug in the NFL. It increases risk for bleeding (as all nsaids do) which is not a great idea for a group of guys who’s brains are about to be slammed around for 3 hours.

    If they were standing in line to get cortisone shots, those types of steroids are used frequently in athletics to relieve pain from joint injuries. This too is often done to the increased risk of players. See also: the movie Varsity Blues.

    All pain medication puts me to sleep. I don't know if it's a placebo affect or I simply have a weaker tolerance, but if I take anything stronger than an excedrin I can not drive and that is noted in my medical files.

    Drowsiness is one of the side effects of Toradol.

    Interestingly, there is at least 1 study that states that Ketorolac is as effective (if not moreso) than morphine. It's a fantastic NSAID, when used properly. The fact that these football players were lining up for their shot is extremely negligent.
