Nelson Update!

 Today was the big day when we headed 
back to the Epworth Hospital.
 One nice straight bone. Nelson's arm has healed really well. It's a bit hard to see in the picture but there is a lot of new bone growth at the site of the break. There is still a bit of the break in the centre but this will continue to heal over the next few weeks.
Looking at the first x-ray, it's amazing how quickly 
the bone has healed itself.
Back home and feeling a lot lighter! 
Another six weeks and then Nelson's specialist will review him and hopefully let him play sport again. In the meantime, he is going to be water boy for his footy team!
