Healing takes forever

Well, We're in week 6 of the New Year, ds's arm is healing fairly well and we went in to have the Pins removed yesterday. Here's a shot of his arm with the splint removed, pins still in.
We were all a bit surprised when the doc pulled out a pair of Pliers (LITERALLY!), to remove the pins.
If you missed the original post & youtube video, he broke both bones in his arm doing a bike stunt.
Now that the pins are out, they were able to put a cast on his arm and I don't have to worry about him bumping it and shifting the bones or pins. Right now we're worried that he has nerve damage in two of his fingers because he's lost mobility and has numbness, but only time will tell. It feels like it takes forever when you're waiting for something to heal!
Thank you to everyone that has sent well wishes & get well cards, we really appreciate them.
