Whew!

The surgeon told D that 99% of Boxer Fractures happen from someone punching something.  The way he fell on the back of his hand in the gym mimicked a fist hitting a wall.  The back of his hand is black and blue.  



Most of the time this injury results in a need for surgery BUT because he's 12 and still growing, his bone will straighten out enough as he continues growing.  Usually men or older teens get this kind of injury from punching a wall and end up with hardware in their hand. He is a very lucky boy; we walked out with a nice red cast.

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
