Well, I'm currently on Long Island, and I get a call from my wife during dinner...
Seems our 13 year old son, Pierce, managed to wreck his bike and break both bones in his lower leg. From what I gathered from my wife, they set it twice (the first time they weren't quite happy with the alignment), put it in a splint for the night and set up an appointment for a cast tomorrow.
Deb noticed on the last x-ray (after it was set the 2nd time), that the bones are "pretty much aligned now, but there is a very slight offset on both." The emergency room doc was happy with the second setting, and said it would take about 6-8 weeks to heal (which means Pierce will miss his first buck season).
My question, is it normal to have a slight offset after they set it (I'm guessing it might be, but want to make sure this isn't a case of "well, we got it 'good enough'").
Thanks to anyone with experience on this- Deb says they gave him plenty of "happy drugs" and he's pretty much out of it for the evening.
