Comment : THE STORY
Posted by adena on Thu 12:32am 8 July 2004


I AM TRYING TO FIND OUR STORY THAT WAS WRITTEN WAY BACK WHEN AND IT SEEMS TO HAVE DISAPEARED. BUMMER. SO HERE WE GO...ON MAY 15 OF LAST YEAR MY 13 YEAR OLD SON A.J. WAS RACING MOTO CROSS AT A NATIONAL RACE IN SACRAMENTO, CA. ALL WAS WELL UNTIL HE GOT HIT. SOMEONES FRONT TIRE HIT HIM IN HIS LEFT FEMER AND BROKE IT, THEN HE FELL OFF HIS BIKE AND LANDED ON HIS LEFT FOOT AND SPUN AROUND. THAT ONE IS WHAT CAUSED A SPIRAL FRACTURE.
LUCKY FOR HIM IT HAPPENED RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE AMBULANCE. IT WAS SO LOUD, THE AUDIENCE HEARD IT SNAP!!! A WEEK IN THE HOSPITAL, A ROD AND TWO SCREWS LATER HE WAS SENT HOME TO HEAL. FAST FORWARD A YEAR LATER. I HAVE TO SAY, THIS HAS BEEN THE LONGEST YEAR OF OUR LIVES. I KNEW IT WAS A BAD INJURY BUT I HAD NOOOOOO IDEA HOW DEVISTATING IT WOULD BE.
ALOT OF PAIN, WHEELCHAIRS, WALKER AND CRUTCHES LATER HE IS ALMOST BACK TO NORMAL. 8 MONTHES AFTER HIS BROKEN LEG HE WAS BACK ON HIS BIKE AGAIN. HE IS NOW BACK TO RACING AND IS LOOKING LIKE HIS OLD SELF AGAIN. HE IS IN 2ND PLACE FOR THE SEASON AND HE JUST GOT BUMPED UP TO NOVICE RIGHT BEFORE HIS INJURY.
HE STILL TAKES PAIN PILLS WHEN HE HAS BUSY DAYS BUT IS DOING WELL EXCEPT HIP PAIN. NEXT MONTH HE IS DUE TO HAVE THE HARDWARE TAKEN OUT AND WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO HEALING COMPLETLY AND PUTTING THIS BEHIND US. SO THERE YA HAVE IT, THE SHORT STORY.
