    I talked to his dad today, who says he actually fell twice, hitting his head --- they believe that's why he's getting the headaches.  He shivered for the next hour because of low blood pressure.  He's missed 10 days of school and after a month of tryouts had just been accepted to the best baseball team for his age group in southern California, his dad says.  The neurologist told him to go out and do what he could, so he's been showing up for practice, but fighting through the headaches.  Right now the parents are steamed to learn from me that they all missed the award ceremony last week where he was one of only two kids to get 3 awards: for general academics, an award for one of his honors classes, and an award for his athletic abilities.  No one told them.  That's what started me questioning my daughter about where he was...

      I can't even image a situation in which no one would call 911.

      That poor kid.  I wish him all the best, and hope that somehow he gets the medical attention he needs.

      I still think you need to publicize this; I'd be beyond livid if this happened to my kid.  

      Small varmints, if you will.
