Christmas Tree Dilemma

This is somewhat of a personal blog this time.  A couple weeks ago my son broke his foot while we are out getting a Christmas tree at one of those temporary Christmas tree places, seen during the holiday, in an empty lot located adjacent to Naperville Tree Care.  Our son was running through the grass and his foot fell into a hole where a signpost use to be.  Naturally we recently went to go see a doctor immediately and  our son had to have surgery on his foot as soon as possible.  At this time, I wanted to report that all  is well and I just wanted to thank everyone for your prayers.  It was really scary for us when it happened because my son was in a lot of pain and this is his first trip to the hospital. We really didn’t know what to expect but I just wanted to say that our doctor was very good, so we would like to thank Dr. Vohra, a foot and ankle specialist in Plainfield, very much.

Well as I’m finding out it takes a little while for a broken foot bone to heal.  Apparently it takes a  broken foot bone approximately 6 to 8 weeks to heal  and depends on your body on how fast your body heals. Naturally if you keep on using your foot while it’s broken you can delay the healing process so it’s been a little bit difficult keeping our little one off his feet as much as possible on such as a daily struggle.

Well doing a little research on my own  the foot has 26 bones.  There are some longer bones and shorter bones all wrapped around all these little blood vessels that supply blood to the foot. What the doctors told, us depending on the circulatory system, that the blood supply makes a difference in the varying healing times of broken bones. So I’m glad we went to the doctor right away because my understanding is the sooner you get to a doctor the better chance of healing properly.
