Laschwen Posted June 9, 2008 Report Share Posted June 9, 2008 My parents are currently visiting form Florida and a funny story came up at dinner last night. I knew the part about having what we thought might be a broken elbow X-Rayed at the Vet's office because we happened to have to go there after I took a fall on the ice while skating. I was 11. I didn't know the rest of the story. Apparently the Vet came out of his office after reading my X-Rays and told my Mother there was good news and bad news. The good news was that there was no fracture. The bad news was that I was not done growing. Humph! How Rude. Apparently he knew the family well enough that it was not taken that way at the time. I think it was good that they didn't tell me at the time I could and would get past 6 foot. I might have done something desperate. It was horrifying to experience it as it came anyway and took years to get over...as much as I ever did anyway. I would still like to have quit at 5 foot 10 inches. It would have made life easier. Of course then I would have no subject for my book project. Who knows? Maybe I can make some money from my experiences? Anybody else in the over 40 crowd ever know of having been told when or if you were done growing? It doesn't seem that I ever heard of other kids being evaluated? Quote Link to comment
