HAHAHAHA. You took all the fun out replying to this thread by admitting to that first!

That sucks! I hope they can do something to repair it and get it back to normal without anything drastic. Praying for him!

Thanks Mike, many many prayers here, I just dnt want him to suffer or be disfigured..
we have talked to the Dr.'s about a few options, either slowing the growth of the other leg, or expansion brace to force grow the broken leg.. we'll see.. as thr are stories of people with same situation that grew fine.. we'll see in a yr or so...
the school is being very supportive, EMS cut off his jeans and school has replaced them with 6 pairs, they have also givin the ok to build a temporary ramp on my house.. things are good as of now..

So thanks everyone here on FRF for your support.

Glad the school is being so helpful! Lots of times they do everything they can to avoid giving you anything.

I got electrocuted in middle school (and a few other times in high school, but thats beside the point). It was bad. 120v flowing in one arm, across my chest, out my other arm. Couldn't let go, couldn't move, could barely breath, and couldn't talk. I could only make some odd gurgling noises. I'm not sure how long i was lit up exactly, somewhere between 30 seconds and a minute. I should probably have died. One of my attentive classmates noticed me, wondered why i was making wierd noises, and realized what was happening. He hit one of the emergency buttons on the wall that killed power to the whole shop and I literally dropped off it. Deepest breath I ever took in my life I think.

The school called my Mom later that day after school obviously trying to gauge if they needed to call their lawyers. 15 years later, my mom stills jokes that we should have sued them anyway.

What I would do is ask the school if they have som kind of compensation, and if they do,
and then refuse to pay for the medical bills, then id think about a lawyer, though if you get a lawyer, that could possibly tie up more of you budget than help

sad but funny Matt.. I have some lawyers in my Fam, and on the womens side of the fam.. a few have suggested that we open a claim and keep it open, not for money, for incase Jacob needs something on down the road... sounds smart, but I am seeking legal advice. from a non-family member
