Dr's Visit

Okay, so we got the MRI done yesterday at 2pm. They change the time of the MRI and a hour later the Orthopedic office calls and asked if I can bring him in today at 11:30am. There's a Dr. There that see's all the football players for Bradshaw. So off we went and because they "squeezed" us in we waited 2 hrs! Anyway, the news is good!! He tore the ligaments in the elbow, has a small fracture and a lot of bruising on and in the arm and bone. I know that sound awful but he does not have to have surgery as of know. The feeling in the fingers is coming back. Don't know if I mentioned it or not last time but the palm of his hand, thumb, index, and middle finger were numb and the other two fingers he said that it felt like there were needles in there. The feeling is all coming back now and they were that way due to all the swelling in the elbow and it was pushing on the nerves. He is in a cast for three weeks. We go back on the 28th of August and will see how it is healing. The Dr. Said that this should heal on it's own in due time with a lot of care and patience. Try telling that to a teenager to be patient. So the cast will allow him not to move the elbow at all. If everything looks okay in three weeks then he will wear a brace for a month. After that then he should be able to join the team. The Dr. Told Aron to keep a mind set that he will not play at all this season and if he heals right and does what he's told then he might play later. Aron has such a great attitude about the whole thing. He's not to bummed, he's still going to practice to help out with what he can and support his team. On Tuesday night reality hit him that there was something seriously wrong with his arm but we didn't know what. I was so sad because he keep on telling me something's not right, it keeps popping out of place. I didn't know what to do for him. I just wanted to fix him and I couldn't. But now he's on his way to being fixed. So here is a picture of him and his new cast. Thanks to everyone who prayed for him and thank God he's doesn't have to have surgery.
