on Saturday of last week. He dirt bikes on Saturdays, and last week I get a call saying we think he broke his foot. They bring him home, and his foot made it in the door first. I said turn around and put him back in the car it's broken. Go to ER, and cat scan shows that he has broken every bone, but 3 metatarsals. The most fractures are 15 in one bone (navicular), least amount of fractures are 4. We were referred to Ortho surg. and he said that he needed surgery, and that there are only 2 docs in this state that can do the surgery my son needs. He said he couldn't help us. So we were sent to the one surgeon that could, and we go in on Weds. The doctor said it was like taking a light bulb and dropping it on the floor, and that is what my sons foot looks like. He said he could fix him. This kid still wants to ride dirt bikes. Wish us luck on Weds. I hate it when one of my boys has to go under, it scares the dickens out of me. It will be a long recovery though. He will have to have one more surgery in 6 months to remove all the metal the doc is putting in his foot. Screws, pins, and plates.
