|Hi! My name is Avery and I have MHE. Let me tell you about me. I am seven years old and I am in the first grade this year. I don't have have any brothers or sisters but, I do have three dogs, a cat, and a fish. The things that I enjoy to do are riding my bike and playing outside.
My summer vacation was different then most kids my age. I had my first MHE surgery on May 15 at Shriner's Hospital. I had ulna lengthening and the doctor also taken some bumps off my wrist. My mom said now I will be able to move my wrist better. My hospital stay was scary at first but the nurses help me find my way around. There is a big play room that I could run around or play board games, anything that I wanted to do. I even made a T-Shirt and painted cars that I could take home. My roommate was the same age as me and we enjoyed the same things too. On the day of the surgery I was not able to eat or drink. The doctor and nurses said that I will be asleep for the whole thing and I would not feel a thing. They were right. I did not feel a thing and when I woke up my mom was right beside me. The hospital is not a scary place. The doctor put a cast on for two months and then I had a splint for a month. That was alot better because you can get it wet. I was able to ride my bike for a little bit until I fell off the teeter-totter at daycare and broke the same arm and -- you guessed it, I was back into the cast for another two months!
As for now I have no cast and I now know that I can break my arm. Well this is my story. Please come and visit my web page!
