« UM baseball player David Thompson undergoes six-hour surgery Monday on right arm for blood clot | Main | Men in black, orange and red. New injury. Miami Hurricanes QBs Ryan Williams & Kevin Olsen speak. »

Tuesday afternoon update on blood clot/surgery of David Thompson, who is "heartbroken'' says dad, but healing

  Just talked to Ed Thompson, the father of UM baseball player (infielder) David Thompson.

  The discouraging news is "he's heartbroken.''

   Everything else is encouraging.

   Like I reported in the Miami Herald last night, David underwent a six-hour surgery yesterday on his right arm for a blood clot that was caused by venous thoracic outlet syndrome, according to the Mayo Clinic, "a group of disorders that occur when the blood vessels or nerves in the space between your collarbone and first rib (thoracic outlet) becomes compressed. This can cause pain in your shoulders and neck and numbness in your fingers.

   "Common causes include... sports-related activities.'' And baseball players have been known to get this syndrome.

    "He had some blockage in a blood vessel and the blood was going out but not coming back, which is what caused the arm to swell,'' UM coach Jim Morris told me last night after UM lost to Virginia 5-3. "He wasn't getting good circulation because the top bone in his rib cage was cutting off the blood flow a little bit.''

   Ed Thompson  emailed me last night and said that "full recovery is expected over time. We are grateful for God's grace and for exceptional doctors and care. We appreciate your prayers.''

  David is recuperating at UM Hospital.

  Mr. Thompson, president of Miami-based Logoi Ministries -- just reiterated to me by phone that "the surgery was successful. The doctors were here this morning and are very pleased with how everything looks. Now the healing process has begun.''

  Doctors had to remove one of David's ribs, and he's in a lot of pain, Ed told me.

  "He’s heartbroken is the best way to say it right now, but determined to get back."

   Will David, a sophomore who leads the Hurricanes with a .328 batting average and starred at Miami Westminster Christian, play baseball again? 

    “Oh yeah, he’ll play again,'' Ed Thompson said. "We just don’t know when. There’s not a specific time frame. Each person is different.''

    Will he be back this season?

    “It’s too soon to tell. We don’t know yet.    

   “We hope he’s out of the hospital by at least Friday, but we haven’t heard a specific date.’’

   Again, David get well soon and keep your head up. You have lots of people praying for you and pushing for you! We know you're a fighter. :)

   Please leave your wishes for David below.

Get well soon David. Like Susan said, lots of people praying for you.

Of course, your most loyal and loudest cheering fan is praying for you to be well and strong again soon.

You will make a great comeback! This is just another bump in the road of life. My prayers go to you.

A minor setback- for a major comeback David. One day at a time.

God speed David. Every day is one day closer. Keep fighting kid, you'll be back before you know it. All the best! GO CANES!

get well cane!

⚡️💥🔥🙌🙌🙌...get back kid

This is all Golden's fault

Jim or whomever, you got it right!

Who else could it be?

David, best wishes for a full recovery...

Someone should start a list of blood clots Golden has caused.

Morris should be fired

Get better david. Good luck

Feel bad for this kid...hope he recovers well.

No one CARES what you think, PERIOD!

5 old time titles?

rsehole, if 2001 (actually january of 2002) was old time, then that means your ignorant redneck trailer a55 was skiklling on your granmas teety when the U won their last. Go to thegainseville blogs to comment ignaant stuff you inbred.

Good luck David

I agree, Jim Morris is onhis lastleg and he is hurting this program

David:

Get well soon and we value your contribution to our team.

Good luck.

Go 'Canes

Go u.C.L.A. BRuINS !!! riiieet cl[]_[]cks ? It's all u gots...

SEC! SEC! SEC!

Much was made over the SEC’s weakness as a major hoops conference this season, but with three Sweet 16 teams -- top-seeded Florida, ninth-seeded Kentucky and 11th-seeded Tennessee -- the league is slowly altering public perception.

While UK and UT are suddenly playing to peak potential, Donovan believes the conference’s reputation -- past and present -- has been overblown all along.

“I think our league can play with any league in the country,” UF’s coach said.


The league is undefeated in the NCAA Tournament (7-0) -- the best record for a conference entering the Regional Semifinals since the Big East in 2003 (8-0).

SEC 10-0 soon ...

acc ? pppfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffiiiiiiittttt fart.

All u need to know about acc sports ...

"Clemson (#3 seed) fans storm the court after beating #5 seed Belmont in NIT quarterfinals."

Maybe if u can make the NIT next year, all 127 of u can mosey down to the court and mingle after a first round home loss...

No one CARES what you think, PERIOD!

Love it when dumb hicks post dumb things. You may own FSU, but not us, as we took the series. You're also not No. 1, you're not even ranked. So go back to your 12 pack and hanging out on your front porch, DA....

Not sure if anyone can understand what you just posted dude, lol.

I ask why are you reading the Hurricanes blog in the Miami Herald and not the Gainesville whatever?
You probably also live Miami, why not Gainesville?

BTW Congratulations, you're so proud of your SEC, they got their a55es handed to them in football by the ACC but at least basketball is making you feel better.
Good for you son, good for you.

UM defensive tackle Ufomba Kamalu improving as Canes defense out to prove itself.

Great, so the nigerian nobody, the BFF DC and like the 'efense, instead of being completely inept next year will now only be mostly of half as inept?

Been hearing them say this "we're flying around and getting better" bullsheet since 2005. Different Coaches, different players, different year, same horsesheet.


And yet, despite teblow 5 star, and driskuit, and patchan, and spikes, and the serial murderer, your gaytors still went 4-8 and lost to georgia southern at the dump. I Mean swump.

Georgia suthern

Ga southern lost to wofford


Really?

Gators

And even noles

When yourr petty big a55 diploma mills win more nat championships in both baseball and football than miami, get back to me

When tebow actually makes an nfl roster not as pity, get back to me

When the turds actually win something with all those 5 stara, get back to me

When either fsu or uf have more players in the nfl or for that matter the pro bowl, get back to me

the last time, and how many times in any sport the last 8-10 years have u finished any season in any sport ranked or even played for Conference or National Championships ?

get in ur waaaaayback macheen mang. 1... 2 times in 10 years ?

Gators ='s DOZENS of times in multiple sports...

Noles ='s DOZENS of times in multiple sports...

u ? ='s mediocrity irrelevance across the board. 3 times maybe?

u are ur greatest fans. the country laughs at u and ur ancient u thang. the OB is dust. u play home games in front of 25k in a 75k Stadium in another County. u cheer other teams to beat ur rivals because u do it so infrequently. ur best football season the last decade was a sorry injured and decimated gator team, that u barely beat and were out played offensively 2 to 1 with 5 turnovers given to u that lost 14 starters and another 8 backups during the season that missed an unprecidented a 100+ games missed between them. And the Gators are still better than u right now and will be ranked higher than u next year like they have the last 12 years with multiple recent National and Conference Championships to ur ZERO.

u relax though clUcks, ESPNU-3 will be playing The U on a loop again during the summer to get u all pumped up and delusional again soon about something that happened before any of the kids that play college football now were even born.

1 'Ship since 1993 ... p-u ...

now tell us alllllll about the 80's again u cane clods...


u still haven't, just like Goldy n BFF, beaten a team in over 8 years that finished the Season Ranked... NOT ONE !

but, lemme guess ... next year is the year, because there are no more excUses anymore for the 6th. year in a row, like in 2009 riiiieeet ?

Question: What was the miami hurricanes greatest season since 2001 ?

1 'Ship in 23 years since Johnny Carson was the host of the Tonight Show, Miami Vice was a hit and Coke was $20 a gram....................

U Picture This ...

Final Game EVER in the Orange Bowl on National TV...

Dozens of Former Canes on the sidelines to be honored at the Half and after the game...

Lowly Virginia, who lost home games to Western Michigan and East Carolina in town to be crucified and Celebrate the Final Game in the Miami Orange Bowl and it's great History and send the ol Lady out like she so deserves...

Ur Playing for Pride, Honor, Respect, a .500% record and to Send the O.B. out right ...

Then ...

wait for it ...

48-0 ...

FORTY-EIGHT - NADA !

BEAT DOWN... SMACK DOWN... PuNCHED IN THE GuT... KICKED SQUARE IN THE NUTZ... SMOKED ... AZZZEZZZ KICKED ... DESTROYED ... PUNCHED IN THE MOUF ... KICKED IN THE TEETH ... SKINNED ALIVE ... LAID DOWN ... QUIT ... GAVE UP ... WANTED NO MORE ... MAILED IT IN ... BEGGED FOR MERCY ... embarrassing beyond all comprehension.

U puked all aver Urselves that November night in the O.B..

Maybe 100 people stay after the game to honor the former canes and their history in the O.B. as the Cavs just kick sand and spat directly into Ur collective faces ...

Nothing, absolutely nothing could ever be that Embarrassing...

Then the Wrecking Ball, mere days later, then brings down the Little Habana Grand Old Lady... And along with it, Ur entire short mid 80's-mid-90's past history in a flash. And not even a glimpse has flickered since... (there's always the 30 for 30 U can run on a loop.)


Auburn, last year, 3-9 and 0-8 in the SEC due to massive Injuries... This year, playing for the Crystal. SEC teams bounce back from adversity. A mere bump in the road. It's an S.E.C. thing.

U just still get bounced around for well over a Decade now and running. dUh U since Ur OB Virginia Beatdown ? MULTIPLE bad, bad losses to under .500% teams, consistent mediocrity, no 10 wins seasons, no division titles, no acc game champ games, No Jan. Bowls, 0-fer in December meaningless bowls, 25k crowds, Unranked, Unranked, Unranked, Unranked, Unranked, Unranked, Unranked week after week, year after year, 500 yards a game allowed again n again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again, over n over n over n over n over n over n over and lemme guess, "Because there are going to be a lot of seniors and a lot of upperclassmen that are going to leave this year", like in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011 and last year, next year in 2014, U will be young and inexperienced all over again hUh ?


U'll be back though right?

U Were Saying Something About being Burned Into History? Ur 10 year old Burnt Toast of a program that even the sharpest knife can't keep scraping off U delUsional dolts.

8 and 9 Win Seasons will forever satisfy U. That is Ur New Cane Thang Reality. Ur mind is just too delUded to comprehend it.
