Lol AF. My husband says that too, all the time!
Yeah kids can be mean, then they grow into meaner adults sometimes.
First they made him do that test to ascertain that he hasn't got a grwoth disease. Foregt the name of it. Honestly. My first husband's family had a seven footer in it, so...who knows. Hope he doesn't grow anymore personally. He already costs me a fortune in clothes and shoes, the bugger.
Good luck to your son for his operations. I really hope they both go well and that he has a speedy recovery and is back on the courts again in no time.
He's worth 50 of each of those bastard kids sending him those rotten messages IMO because he doesn't stoop down to their level.

One can only hope Myf. His friends are nice. He has a lot of 'follow-ons', but he's wise enough to see who is real and who isn't IYKWIM.
Your son's sporting development sounds like too much too young. I hate the way junior sports are run these days. I've seen players - brilliant, at 15 playing State team and Div 1 club and juniors u15s club and then playing all the same levels in another sport as well. I knew an orthopod who told the parents their daughter had arthritus at 16 - and she was playing a squillion hours of tennis every week so what else could they expect. Boys are not done growing before 21 yo. And if they go flat out in their sport too early they're crippled at a very young age because the sport interferes with their growing. Sigh.
And yet, if they're not going flat out by 15 - then they are overlooked for the state and national teams permanently. I've heard hockey selectors say as much - not playing div 1 at 15, not ok for state teams. and will never play nationals. grr. At least Basketball has a different system for nationals/league.
I think's as bad as racing 2 yo horses. They're not done growing until they're 5 or 6. And if they were let mature naturally, they could still be racing/competing at 18 or so. But racehorses get retired around 8. My horse lived till he was almost 40 - so that gives you an idea of how young these horses are when declared crippled or too old or glue.
Besides that, they treats these kids like a lump of poo, and I couldn't tolerate their abuse. They never abused my son, but he saw others being screamed at. Wasn't good.
Having said that, I know his uncle didn't play any sports but still required ops to fix body parts from such huge growth when he was younger.
Can you tell me about the keyhole surgery versus open reconstruction at all Hy?
What a funny and witty kid.
Hope his surgeries go well!
