Well son finally had his Tommy John surgery on Thursday (12/23), He called it his early Christmas present..lol.
Doctor said it was pretty badly torn one of the worst he had seen as it was actually "torn in two places". When he screws something up he screws it up good! They took a tendon from his wrist and the surgery went great. He had a tough day on the 24th pain wise but did much better on Christmas day and yesterday. Just Advil for the pain.
His arm is wrapped heavily in a plaster splint immobilizing his elbow. He goes back to see the surgeon on Thursday. Not sure if he gets the brace then or not. we shall see.
Now he can finally start the long road back from TJ surgery.
