Hey all, my 14 year old son could use prayers and good thoughts today. (so could his mom)!
Yesterday, after doing a 360 on his snowboard he fell out of it & broke his right collar bone is two places. He will be having surgery this afternoon to put in a plate. The bone is protruding & they need to reconnect it.
Surgery is new to both of us. Last year he fractured his other collar bone, so we are use to broken collar bones! My famous last words last year - YOU WILL NEVER SNOWBOARD AGAIN....so much for my famous last words!
Thanks to my hubby buds!
Positive energy and good thoughts are zooming their way over to both of you as I type. Take care!
P.S. The only bone I ever broke was my collar bone. I fell off a picnic table bench at my own birthday party; I just turned "lucky" 7. (I wasn't terribly coordinated as a child. Nor am I as an adult, for that matter.)
Oh Jane, I hope he recovers pretty good, I will have my prayers for him!
You got it. I've had that same surgery twice. (motorcycle racing) He'll come through with flying colors. Piece of cake. Tell him to enjoy the down time and do just what the Dr. says after the surgery. with collar bones you get to thinking you're all healed and you're not. Best wishes for all of you.
I would certainly tell him not to go out an snowboard again. We had a kid in our city not too long ago who was sledding, and hit a tree with his brother. I guess one of them died, and the other was seriously injured.
People who do these kinds of sports should certainly learn the risks of them before they rush out and try them. A friend of mine broke his leg when I was a kid the same way. He was on a plastic sled.and it hit a very small tree and split right in half up to his groin. Not a pretty picture.
Jane, he will be fine. Since you've already experienced this once, then you know.
i said it all in email Jane but i just wanted to stop by and leave him a little sumthin sumthin...
Good thoughts are on the way ... I hope all goes well.
P.S. video games are safer.
And video games he is playing!
He is doing so much better today. Less pain medication, I helped him shower (he wore his swim trunks) and he had a few friends stop over to visit!
I dislike pain medication - it makes him irritable & demanding!
Again, thanks for the good wishes, thoughts & prayer!
Jane, my prayers go out to your son for a speedy recovery. All the best.:-)
So sorry to hear this happened! As teens are prone to do, they want to defy the limits and laws of physics. It's a hard lesson to learn how hard the earth really is....
Sending kindest and best to you, your son and loved ones. Keep us posted!
Oh my god Jane, poor thing, of course your both in my thoughts and prayers. xo
When they called telling me they were taking him to the hospital, my first thought was that he tried to attempt his first hand-spring off a jump. Thank goodness it was a school event & he had lots of teachers and parents there to comfort him until we got to the hospital - of course, the hospital was in Wisconsin, an hour away from home! Thank goodness it was an in-network hospital for our insurance
thats good Jane, at least there are others to comfort him as well, plus the insurance you have is ok, thats good enough, still he needs to recover gradually but surely,,,,and he has classes as well, hmmm
how about driving that far, can you do it now?
We wish him well soon...having raised a son who has no fear...and many scars...we wish you well too!
I have a son as well, but somehow he came out of even his teens unscathed. I have no idea how he managed, since he's a snowboarder, too! Stay strong, Mom!
Prayers and hugs, Jane.
I'm so sorry to hear that, Jane. Sending good vibes to you both. I hear broken collar bones are awful. Hang in there, Jane.
Oh Jane how awful, thoughts and get well wishes to your son-shine and an extra big shipment of Mommy strength to you.
A lot of prayers for you 2. May God help him to get better soon. I really wish him well.
I'm sure he'll be just fine Jane and my prayers are with your family. Your son will just have some cool "war" stories for his girlfriends at school
Jane i'll pray for his speedy recovery........ he'll be fine.....
Well your son certainly created some excitement! Wishing him a smooth operation, an uneventful recovery period, and you a good night's sleep! You're both in my prayers.
He'll come out strong, I broke my elbow in 2 places skateboarding in Brazil. My mom asked the surgeon to tell me to stop skating, he said he couldn't cause his son longboards 60km/hr.
I also made bad judgemets but that's how you learn
and don't repeat again!
Thank you everyone for your thoughts, prayers and well wishes!
He did come through with flying colors! He is up & eating this morning & has a zero pain level (percoset). We got home about 11:30 last night & he slept through the night.
The surgeon told us afterwords that the bone was very close to puncturing through the skin, so it was a good choice to have the surgery.
Again, thank you hubbers!!!
I missed saying good luck to your son on his surgery. But I'm glad I get to comment on your good news. And it is good news. Glad to hear he is okay Jane.
I hope he recovers quickly and I feel YOUR pain. Children worry you to death and add the grey hairs!
May all beings have happiness and its causes,
May they never have suffering nor its causes;
May they constantly dwell in joy transcending sorrow;
May they dwell in equal love for both near and far.
Jane, heck of a thing to be "expert" at, but I guess you and your son are now. These injuries usually do well. In my experience, clients are seldom referred for therapy.
Good news, Jane. Normally pain medication makes one quite.... well, amenable. Glad to hear he's improving. Hang in there.

I'm sure by now you guys are tired of praying for and/or sending good thoughts for my family and me. Remember Brooklynn, my 7-month-old granddaughter who's had so many health issues? She's in the hospital again, with influenza type A. This is the most dangerous kind of flu and the one that's been...
