The good news is no surgery for Brook. The bad news is she will take longer to heal. After looking over her X-rays, probing a bit(not much but it still hurt), and measuring the depth of the bone spread, the doctor decided that the best thing all around would be to leave it alone. He said the bones were parallel to each other so they will form a bond but it will take a little bit longer. I asked about the nerve problem that developes sometimes when non union bones form a bond. He said in all the years he has been practicing he has only seen it twice and those were adults. He said that he was glad that the doctor did not try a figure 8 splint on her as that is far more painful than it needs to be. She will have a slightly smaller shoulder. Poor child, she already has small shoulders!
She said thank you to all of you.
