Compound Fracture and Yusof's Birthday


Ib had a compound fracture on his right thumb.....Warranted a 40 minute operation for axial K-wiring (in layman's term - inserting wire like "kebab" skewer through his thumb [this is exactly how the ortho surgeon described to us) about 11 pm last night.
It is Yusof's 10th birthday today...Sorry son, we have been bogged down because of Ib's injury. Will make up to you very soon! HAPPY 10th BIRTHDAY DEAR YUSOF!
Will post when time permits.

uuuu....i tink my husband shld noe dat tingling feeling.

He had a K-wire inserted on his second toe abt a year ago. Fractured during 1 of his football game. Inserting is not d prob....but removing it....

Since this is d thumb, I dont noe whthr it wld b d same way 2 b removed. My hubby's, dey just pulled it out, manually. Or in my hubby's term...yanked it out!

Me...I just cldnt stand the sight of d wire sticking out of d toe for a whole month.

Ouch..ouch...and ouch!!

I guess marble table is a big no no if your kids still under 12 years old.

Hope he will get well and happy birthday to Yusof :)
