Not good, the doctors were perplexed, how in the world could a 14 year old break his leg from falling down on the floor? 90 year olds do this, not 14 year olds. And an X-ray told them the whole story. Nick had a cyst in the bone, a void if you will. The top of his femur was hollow, like a figgin light bulb!
The top of the bone basically collapsed, it was not pretty. He was transferred to another hospital where a specialist was and he did a bang up job on Nick. He had a rod and a few screws put in today and is already moving it! We are very blessed that it happen at a place like it did. This thing was so fragile it could have happened anywhere. Jumping from a rock in Yosemite, or off a hay bale in Half Moon bay last Oct, it could have happened at a very bad time or place, so this is as good as it gets. Nick believe it or not has enjoyed the "show". He said that if it wasn't for the pain of the broken leg it is "interesting" seeing what he has seen during this experience.
My Gran Sport is put on the back burner for a few weeks minimum.
X2 at least it was early, and in an easy ambulance location! Now he knows and Will recover well. Pullin for him, best wishes. Chicks dig scars, he'll be good!
