Accept my apologies for the delay in posting. I don't have any pics yet and have been overwhelmed with doctors, urgent care, ER, etc.
The first day on the job (Monday), Brian smacked his head on a forklift and gave himself about a 2 inch gash. An EMT cleaned the wound and, after some time, suggested stitches. Without boring you with the details, we were run around by our insurance so long it finally became too late to stitch the wound. It finally stopped bleeding eight hours later and he will have a nasty scar. The scar won't really be seen as long as he can keep hair on his head. Now that could be a problem. LOL
Wednesday, Blake was lacing seams. He paused to fetch something from the semi-trailer and then jumped out. He landed wrong breaking his radius and ulner about 1/2 inch above the wrist. This turned into another fiasco with urgent care, ER, insurance, sleepless night, etc. We finally drove three hours home to the same surgeon that took care of Brian last year and the doctor said Blake was too swollen to take any action. Blake's arm is in a heavy, hard splint with a sling. He is in tremendous pain an hour before he can take the next pain pill. We will return to Bakersfield on Tuesday, get another X-Ray and return to the surgeon. The doctor is suspicious another bone may be broke closer to his elbow due to his exam of Blake's finger movement. The surgeon did give us good news saying he didn't think he would have to do surgery. Because of Blake's age and size of his bones, the doctor thinks the bones may re-set themselves when the swelling goes down. If not, the doctor will re-set them on Tuesday and then cast it. Blake is anxious for the cast because it will be much lighter than the splint. I will let you know what happens on Tuesday.
