I don't think he was even finished with physical therapy when he got hurt again, this time fracturing his right humerus. The doctors gave it a chance to mend without a plate, but it wasn't working. Even three weeks later, Aaron could feel the jagged ends grating when rolling over in bed. It was not a good sleep situation. So the doctor decided a plate with screws was necessary. Because three weeks had gone by, surgery was a bit messy and an overnight hospital stay was needed.

So Aaron and I are pretty close to even now. He has a plate and several screws in his humerus, I have a plate with six screws in my left fibula. Aaron has a pin in his right scaphoid, I have two pins in my left tibia. Only difference is I did mine all at once one limb.

So do you think Aaron will stop skateboarding? I suspect that is about as likely as me staying off my mountain bike. Like father, like son.
