Holden went to the Orthopedist today and he is going to be juuuuuust fine!
The doctor said that Holden BROKE his thumb right along the growth plate, but that it was in good alignment and should heal with no problem and not affect his growth at all. He was given the all clear to golf on Monday, but said that he's only allowed to do the conditioning and basics at football camp...so "Mack" (that's Brother's football nickname)will have to wait until the season starts to lay the smackdown on!
He got this cool new splint that is much more comfortable than the one that the Doc-In-The-Box Jacklegs gave him! He'll have it for at least three weeks, but it's much nicer to kiss.
Now be CAREFUL Holden!!!!
**MOM'S NOTE** I fogot to mention that Dr. Ortho set me straight yesterday and explained that where bones are concerned...a break is a break. When I said to him "I thought it was just fractured!" he kind of gave me a nice "duh" reply and said somethting to the effect of fractured=broken (either bones are intact or they're not). Hmmmm....interesting. I always thought there was a difference. I told Holden to milk it because BROKE sounds so much more serious than FRACTURED! ;-)
