C's broken leg... bummer

Tuesday, July 25, 2006

C broke his leg... again. This is the 3rd time he's broken this leg. They did surgery Thursday evening and put a plate and lots of screws in there. It is a spiral fracture with detached bone fragments. He's pretty uncomfortable and bored, but he's been in good spirits considering!

This puts quite a damper on the rest of our summer plans. Can't really boat, bike, camp, hike, World's of Fun, Cedar Point, etc. with a badly broken leg. Bah. But I'm cooking for him and his dad and just generally helping him out and that makes me feel better. Poor C.

So he's got a road ahead of him. It'll be six weeks before he can put weight on that leg and who knows how long before he's off crutches.
