So my genius 22 year old son went to a concert and decided crowd surfing should be done. 2 assholes at the edge of the crowd pushed him downward instead of carrying him and he fell 4 1/2 feet landing on his back. He has a fractured t12 vertebrae. Should heal on its own in about 6 weeks, during which time he is in a brace that keeps him from bending. Goes from just above his groin to just below his neck. You can be the loves it. I so did not need this on top of all my ongoing health crap/(December 10, 2013 at 2:25 am #225736December 10, 2013 at 3:11 am #225737
Oh Maria I am sending you tons of love and prayers. Your son is very lucky he didn't get hurt even worse than he did!December 10, 2013 at 3:25 am #225738
Ugh. I am so sorry, Maria! Huge hugs to you. At least he is okay. That's what's important. 🙂December 10, 2013 at 3:55 am #225739
Wow Maria! What jerks! I've done some crowd surfing in my time but never was dropped. Never was worried that I would be dropped either. Ah…young and dumb.

Back braces are no fun, but they do the job. Sending super quick healing wishes y'alls way.

Definitely a better day. He is actually going to try to work a half day tomorrow and Thursday, even though he has a slip through Friday. He is already bored with being home all day. Since his job is pretty non physical, he should be ok. Goes back to the dr. Friday, so I will have an update then.
