My nephew in Virginia managed to break his leg by being a twelve year old boy who was not well supervised and had a cabinet crash down on him. Broke the two bones in his lower leg. He did need surgery but did not need pins or rods (at least of this writing)
I have been there and know the pain all too well. He has been in quite a bit of pain since the accident so I sent out this get well card in the hopes it could lift his spirits for a bit.
