That Kid!

The Joker & Harley Quinn aka Rocker Son & Tattoo Girl!

Hey Bloggy Friends

Thanks for asking about  Rocker Son (25 yr) and his recuperation after getting hit by a car while going to work on his motorcycle in mid August. His femur has accepted the steel rod that runs down it and though it is still painful and he walks like an 80 year old man, we are happy that he is walking!

Due to a mess up with lack of insurance and a case worker that gave them bad advice, Rocker Son and his girlfriend could not get in to see any doctors for follow-up care of his leg and the cast on his arm. They finally removed the cast themselves and the arm and pinkie finger are fine.

But all along since the accident his other wrist had been slightly tender and swollen. The hospital said it was sprained and would go away on it's own. They x-rayed it and confirmed that.

Two weeks ago they had it looked at again because he could not bend his wrist like he used to. They discovered that he had sustained a very rare disease called Keinbocs Disease. It could not have been diagnosed earlier because the symptoms do not show themselves for several weeks.

Now according to the doctors, this injury is actually his MOST serious from the accident!! Argh! The impact of the trauma to his hand caused the blood to stop flowing to one of the large platelet type bones in his palm. Without blood and nutrients going to the bone, it has shrunk and is causing his hand to turn in on itself and could become fused to itself if he does not under go some experimental surgeries that involve removing several bones and replacing them. Again I say ARGH!

Yep, fun stuff. He is pretty much impossible to discourage, he just shrugs his shoulders and says, "whatever"! Crazy kid!
Thanks for your prayers and good thoughts!


  1. That is frightening to me (since my son loves motorcycles)...I hope he can get treatment for the hand and disease! ARGH is the feeling....I pray he has a healing

  2. Thanks for the update! I´m sorry he has to go through so much stuff. That is scary to know he could lose use of his hand. I hope he will be ok!

  3. Oh, dear! Just when we things are getting better — they aren't.

    Blessings and Bear hugs to the Rocker. And the Girl. And the Mom!

    "It ain't over til it's over." Yogi was right. In this case, sadly.

  4. 'Whatever' is fine when you're young but he's going to have lots of issues when he gets older. Hope he get the right treatment necessary to fix that hand up properly. He's one tough cookie though. No wonder you're so proud of him.
