Do Broken Collar Bones Run in the Family?
Well, the hockey season recently started and when we’re not watching either the Vancouver Canucks, Winnipeg Jets (they’re ba-a-a-ck!) or the Toronto Maple Leafs on TV, Stu’s playing himself in the local hockey league at 3rd year Midget level. He was selected by his teammates as Assistant Captain and has been getting a fair few points up to now.
Last night, however, I got a telephone call just as I was expecting he and his Dad (Team Trainer) home saying that Stu took a hit wrong and may have broken a bone. After the x-rays, it was decided that he had broken his collar bone and he returned home in pain with his arm in a sling. Needless to say, he had a rough night last night.
The ironic thing is that Mark just had a consult with an anaesthetist because he is going for surgery on his broken collar bone on October 28th. He has broken his collar bone a few times and it has remained separated and problematic for years. Finally, the doctor has decided that surgery is required because of the problems Mark is having with it.
I just hope Stu’s heals better than Mark’s did. I’d hate for him to have to go through the same things.
