From Kim. Elder Wimmer had an untimely P-Day accident (capture the flag gone awry). After an X-Ray and MRI and a trip to Singapore, the Asia Area Medical authority determined that Max needed to go home for follow up orthopedic care. Apparently, if an injury/illness takes more than 3 weeks to recover from you are automatically sent home. Max’s companion, Elder Lundahl-Wolford also flew home to have surgery on his ankle (from a previous accident). They both arrived home on Monday (the 29th) in good spirits. We were glad they could travel together. Our Stake President released Max soon after returning home. We were able to get an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon at TOSH (The Orthopedic Specialty Hospital) on the following Wednesday.

The doctor did a thorough examination, took an X-ray and compared it to the MRI and X-ray that was performed in Malaysia and agreed that Max has a fibular head avulsion fracture of the left leg. He said it was not serious and does not require surgery and should heal on its own. An area of the bone is a little bruised and it is just a little tender where the fracture is but Max can start putting weight on his knee immediately and as long there is no pain he is encouraged to walk on that leg.

Max has a PT appointment next week. The Doctor believes he should be walking and able to bike in as little as 4 weeks. Of course, time will tell but we again are hopeful that he’ll be as good as new. Max is anxious to return back to the field but for time being we are enjoying him here and we are able to bask in the Spirit that he brings to our home. He studies every day and it is fun hearing him and his dad speak Mandarin. We’ll keep updating on his progress.
