Our Youngest broke his arm yesterday in the afternoon playing sports at school. First I will say I have the utmost respect for his mental toughness as he never let anyone know how bad it hurt by getting emotional. He was in surgery for 1.5 hrs this morning and the surgeon said everything went well. My wife and I had the longest 1.5 hrs.. We raised one tough kid and are thankful it wasn’t something like neck, spine or head trauma. I am sitting here with him while he is resting after my wife stayed for the last 28hrs here with him. I was on and off as I finished up jobs yesterday then went in this afternoon till 5:30. They are looking to release him tomorrow. Don’t sweat the small stuff guys so many things that go bad that are not worth the energy..

Glad to hear it wasn't anything more serious... Not that a broken arm that required surgery is to be taken lightly, that X ray ain't pretty... Good that the surgery went well...

Tough kid, that’s a bad break! We have 3 boys, 2 played hockey so we had regular visits to orthopedic docs. Son #1 broke his arm and was pissed at the doctors cutting his Jersey off.

You’re son will be fine, and it’ll be his badge of honor!

I agree but seriously to remain focused is unbelievable… Honestly Its like an incredible trait to have because one day it may save his life or someone else’s.. I teared up just knowing he had to sit 18 hrs like that..

I hope your boy gets well soon.
Watch the painkillers, a fuckton of kids in my children's age group got hooked after sports injuries.

Agreed. He got a nerve block after surgery and it’s still working… We will monitor what he is taking and no cast. They want him to get to moving it right as soon as possible..

Tough boy, but youth heals fast. Prays for his fast and complete recovery. It's a great attitude he has.

Tough kid. He must have good genes and a good set of parents to guide him.
If I had a kid, I'd want him to be like yours.
