Robin has broken his upper arm

Last Monday our son Robin (15) broke his upper arm and dislocated his shoulder during a judo match. I took him to hospital for an x-ray and it turned out that he needed an operation the next day. I stayed with him during the night and he had to wait until Tuesday 20:30 PM for the operation (there were several emergencies in the hospital that needed attention first).
He is at home now, after three nights in hospital, and he is doing reasonably well - but still with a lot of pain in his arm and shoulder. Your prayers are appreciated.

How terrible. I will definitely pray for him and you!

This is truly difficult under any circumstances but certainly for a young, active person.

May he, and your entire family, know the comfort and healing of Father.

Ouch. I'm glad he's home, but I understand how difficult it will be for him to feel much comfort. He is in my prayers.

Ahhhh, the "gentle art" is sometimes not so gentle.

This must be very dfiicult for him and the family. You have our prayers.

Bad move, Robin. I hope you didn't break up the furniture while you were at it.

Seriously, heal fast and quit giving your parents gray hairs. At our advanced age, we can't handle stuff like this.
