Football Injury

Brady got hurt at football practice on Tuesday night. When I showed up to the school, they already had his arm wrapped so I didnt see it. When we went to the hospital he was in so much pain that they decided to do x-rays first and see where we were at. Thats the first time I saw his arm...it was obviously broken. He had surgery on Wednesday to fix it. Poor guy, football season is over. Probably wont be wrestling either. He was also supposed to start drivers ed. on Oct. 5 (the day after his birthday) but they said he will have a cast up to his shoulder and cant do that so we had to cancel.
Here he is at the hospital before surgery.

Brady hadnt seen what his arm looked like, so I asked the doctor to take pictures before he fixed it.




Hes doing fairly well. Some pain, but its alot better since the surgery. Brady has had lots of support from friends and we so appreciate it!
Get feeling better sweetie!

OH YUCK! That looks painful! So sorry for the guy... not only is that SO awful, but having to miss out on everything makes it even sadder for him. And sorry for you, I'm sure its hard to see your son in so much pain and so disappointed. Hope he mends well and quickly!

Oh wow. You know in Harry Potter when Lockheart accidentally removes all of the bones in Harry's arm? I think it would look something like that...
