    I posted this in the prayer request forum, but, I know some of you don't go there so I wanted to post it here also. Maricie's son Kyle is having surgery this morning to repair a severely broken arm that will require stabilization with pins. He and his cousin were riding a 4 wheeler and had a crash. Marcie was pretty upset last night when I talked to her so I don't know all the details, but, will get back with you all when I find out. I'll be talking to her later on this morning.

    I know she would appreciate it if everyone would send up some prayers for Kyle. Nothing is more frightening to a parent than when something happens to their child!!

    How old is Kyle? it's always a terrible thing when your kids get hurt, let's thank the Lord it was JUST a badly broken arm! Kids heal so quickly, our friends six year old has 8 pins in his wrist and forearm, the cast came off about a month ago and little Collin is playing back on the monkey bars.

    Hang in there Marcie!

    Just got a call from Marcie and Kyle made it through surgery just fine. They did not have to put pins in, just a cast up past his elbow. Kyle is 12.

    Seems like Marcie has a little hero on her hands also. He and his cousin were riding the 4 wheeler up a hill, hit a bump and the thing flipped them over, backward. The 4-w'er landed on top of them. Kyle put his arms up to break the impact of the thing and it smashed his hand backward, ending with a major compound fx. They were both able to crawl out from under the satan machine, that's what I call those da*n things!! Just thinking about what COULD have happened makes my blood run cold. God above protected those two little boys from a major head or spinal injury.

    Marcie sends her thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers. God is good, this could have been so much worst!!

    We just got home an hour ago and Kyle is settled in for the time being...not sure how this will go without the nurses button handy he now has a bell by his side. It took 5 attemps for a figgin IV line, needless to say I was a bit ticked off!!! 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.

    Glad to hear all went as well as it did. Now that he is OK, its time for you to pour yourself a stiff one and let out a big sigh of relief. :shades:
