There were some scary moments for Greg Vaughan this week. The actor received a phone call that his son, Cavan, was rushed to the emergency room.
"Nothing worse than getting a phone call & hearing your child got hurt," Vaughan shared on Twitter along with a photo of himself with his son. "Cavan suffered a dislocated knee during his playoff bound basketball practice and was nothing but incredibly brave and strong! In [an] ambulance, ER bound he asked his coach, when can I come back to practice?"
Vaughan offered a big thank you to his son's "coaches, administration, first responders, teammates, [and] friends."
A BIG 🙏🏻👏🏻❤️ to my sons school coaches, administration, first responders, teammates, friends checking! My mom & fellow father for holding down the fort until I arrived! My cast/crew @dayspeacock for straight to tape, get gone approach & off to the airport to be with my sons! ❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/PMPsGBE4D8- Greg Vaughan (@greg_vaughan) January 27, 2023
While every case is different, a dislocated knee is usually treated with a brace to hold the patella (knee cap) in place, which is followed with physical therapy to help restrengthen the muscles around the patella.
