Good vibes for a speedy recovery...

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi, everyone;

I have had a rough day or so - my 11 year old stepson was hit by a car while riding his bike on Friday. I am grateful beyond words that his injuries are not life-threatening, mostly bumps and scrapes and general overall soreness, but it is terrifying to think what might have happened.

The worst injury is to one of his ankles - it doesn't appear to have a major fracture; the ER doc set it in a splint until he can get in to see an orthopedic surgeon, who will determine if he is going to need surgery. We won't know that until sometime next week. I would appreciate any prayers and good vibes that anyone is willing to send for a speedy recovery!

Thanks so much,

Oh my gosh! I'm so glad his injuries aren't critical, but I'm sure it was terribly frightening. I hope his bumps and bruises heal soon!

How frightening that must have been!

Car/bike accidents are all too common. I hope he was wearing a helmet! I know so many people that have been hit by cars while riding bikes. . . . my ex, my sister, a neighbor, and a classmate who was not so fortunate. . . . died from head injuries.

Thoughts & prayers for a quick recovery & happy ending with the ankle.

His age is in his favor! He'll heal quickly. . .
My own so broke both of his wrists snowboarding and healed very well. He was about the same age at the time.

I will let everyone know when I have an update. His mother was going to try to get him in to the orthoped as early as possible, but it might take a few days. He is not having much pain, so I am glad for that.

Thanks for the vibes, everyone - no surgery! Apparently the growth plate on the bone is cracked, so the ortho doc set the ankle in a permanent cast, but it should heal fine now on its own and shouldn't cause any long-term problems!

Thanks again for the kind words and good thoughts...
