Kyle will turn 13 the end of the month... many many thanks and more to come but I need to get things organized here besides taking a bath and no sleep someone 6' tall doesn't fit well on a 3' couch!!
I will post more tomorrow...but bare with me my computer will not power on so I am having to try to figure out my daughters lap-top!!
Here is a picture of the break in his wrist it was the two major bones and the side bone of your wrist that sticks out with his age and youth on his side they did not have to pin it like they first told us.
I broke my left arm at 13 riding a bike and my right arm a year later skate boarding at 14. And because of my youth and prolly the fact I loved to drink milk my bones healed quick.
The first one I broke at 6 PM and did not get it set until 1:30 AM the next morning because my parent's could not afford insurance. It was horrific, then it grew back crooked and the Dr said I would have to have it re-broken and re-set to which I replied "over my dead body". Any way I bring it up because what was crooked was the angle the bone goes in the wrist bones. After seeing a specialist, he said since I was young and the break / healing bone was on a growth plate and I was still going to have growth spurts that it would straighten out itself over time and it did for the most part.
To make a short story long, as you said, Kyle's youth is on your side and as seems to have made the difference.
Glad y'all are home safe.
