Doctors feared 15-year-old Arlo Smith from Secunda, Mpumalanga, could lose the use of his arms – or even the limbs themselves – after a freak bike accident. But there has been some good news.
Arlo wasn’t expecting it. He’d been going to the specialist every two weeks for X-rays and a check-up and every time the doctor told him he’d need many more surgeries.
But at his latest visit, the specialist stared dumbfounded at the X-rays. “You guys, look here,” he said to Arlo’s parents. “The bone is growing back.”
