Just like Jonathan is a magnet for getting bee stings (around 3 a summer), Andrew seems to be a magnet for getting hurt. Back on July 11 he and a couple of his brothers were horsing around at a friend's house and Andrew jumped into the pool and hit his hand on the side.
He didn't think it was broken, but by the swelling I thought otherwise.
Look at this break on his right hand!
The urgent care doctor referred him to a surgeon at Loma Linda but when I called they could not get him in till the end of July-- and that was just to be evaluated. I didn't like the thought of him waiting that long so I called Arrowhead Orthopaedics. They got him in the next day and surgery was scheduled four days later.
The surgery went well and he was in and out in a couple of hours. Two pins were placed. Two weeks later another x-ray was taken and his hand was nearly healed! They casted him for one more week.
This was his x-ray just a few days ago. Good news-- he got his cast off...
and pins removed.
July 11th when Andrew first broke his hand to August 9th when he got his cast off and pins out-- less than one month!
Andrew is a quick healer!
