Sadly, the VERY LAST GAME of the tournaments at the end of the season, David fell and tried to catch his fall with a straight, locked arm. That was last Tuesday, October 25th. By Thursday he'd had X-rays at the Chiropractor who sent him to get an MRI at the Radiology Clinic who then sent him to the ER to get a splint for his BROKEN ELBOW. :( We are very thankful that the fracture was non-displaced, so he doesn't need surgery for the fracture. We had an appointment today with Dr. Casey at Andrews Orthopaedic Center over at St. Vincent's in Birmingham. She gave him the ok to lose the splint which he was VERY HAPPY about! She said the ligament in his elbow looked fine. She checked out his wrist and shoulder and reported that she is almost 100% sure that he, at least partially, tore the cartilage on the outside of his wrist, so he is now in a brace. He is prescribed physical therapy twice a week for the next 3-4 weeks. Hopefully that will help the elbow, as well as the wrist and shoulder to heal. We are praying for a full and speedy recovery with as little pain as possible!
I loved this picture of Ashlyn in one of her little "Gameday Outfits" that "Aunt" Teresa made for her for her birthday. I love the adoring look that she is giving her Daddy. She truly does adore him! Such a Daddy's Girl! :)
