Heward out of the hospital

Great news. Glad it wasn't anything bad, it was really scary there for a while.

Quote:
“Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Jamie Heward has been released from a Washington D.C. hospital and is traveling back to Tampa today. Heward suffered a concussion during the third period of last night’s game against the Washington Capitals.

Heward, 37, was taken to Sibley Memorial Hospital last night, accompanied by Lightning Assistant Athletic Trainer Mike Poirier. He underwent further testing, where it was determined that no damage to his cervical spine occurred. Heward was kept overnight as a precaution and will be sidelined indefinitely, though the prognosis for his personal health is good.’’

Thank God. That's great news. I was there last night sitting in the handicap section with my brother who happens to be paralyzed from the chest down due to a neck injury and it was very rough to watch Heward laying there like that. We had convinced ourselves it was a neck injury. All my best to him and his family for a speedy recovery.


Just a sidenote, a couple years back the Caps gave out pictures of Ovechkin after he scored his very first goal. Jamie Heward is in the background of that picture.

I was anxious to hear this news. It's great to hear his prognosis appears to be good. Not a Tampa Bay fan but hate to see anyone get seriously injured. Good luck to him and your team!
