Free At Last

Well let's see Aron had his Doctor's apt yesterday and the news on the arm was good. It's healing the way it should be and will be completely healed in 3 to 4 weeks. No therapy is needed either. On the other hand for football he suggested that he not play at all this year BUT it was totally up to us to make that decision.
So with a lot of thought and talking to Aron we came to an agreement. His next two games are away and there is NO WAY I'm going to let him play with me not there. Should something happen and I can't get to him would just be devastating to me. So the rest of this week he can lift weights to help build up the arm again. Next week he can start practicing with the team. The week after that there will be 2 home games left and he will be able to play in those. This way we will be there to watch him. Most people are wondering why would we let him play if the doctor suggests him not to but the answer is simple for us. He busted his butt this summer going to weightlifting and practice and camp everyday all summer. He deserves to play in at least the last two. He has continued to go to every practice after school every game and support his team. It has killed him to just stand on the side lines and watch.We are hoping that he will use his discretion to make the right decision that if there is a problem with his elbow that he will stop. I know that's asking a lot from a teenage boy but I feel that he will make the right decision. He goes back to the doctor in three weeks. We will continue to keep you posted.
