UM baseball player David Thompson undergoes six-hour surgery Monday on right arm for blood clot

   Minutes after Virginia defeated Miami 5-3 in the rubber game of a three-game series Monday at Mark Light Field, UM coach Jim Morris told the Miami Herald that David Thompson underwent a six-hour surgery Monday morning on his right arm.    

   David's father, Ed Thompson -- president of Miami-based Logoi Ministries -- delivered the following statement to me via email:  

   "David was admitted to the University of Miami hospital on March 19 after a blood clot was discovered in his upper arm. It was determined the cause was an uncommon condition called 'Venous Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.'

     "Surgery to solve this issue was successfully performed on March 24th. While disheartened, David is in good spirits and full recovery is expected over time. We are grateful for God's grace and for exceptional doctors and care. We appreciate your prayers.''

  Thompson was admitted to UM Hospital last week with a badly swollen right arm.

  “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,'' Morris said.

   “He wasn’t getting good circulation because the top bone in his rib cage was cutting off the blood flow a little bit. They said it was a successful surgery and he’ll be fine.

   Morris said he had no idea when Thompson will be back on the team.

   Here's hoping that David gets well soon.

MAYO CLINIC DEFINITION OF VENOUS THORACIC OUTLET SYNDROME

Thoracic outlet syndrome is a group of disorders that occur when the blood vessels or nerves in the space between your collarbone and your first rib (thoracic outlet) become compressed. This can cause pain in your shoulders and neck and numbness in your fingers.

 Common causes of thoracic outlet syndrome include physical trauma from a car accident, repetitive injuries from job- or sports-related activities, certain anatomical defects (such as having an extra rib), and pregnancy. Sometimes doctors can't determine the cause of thoracic outlet syndrome.

 Treatment for thoracic outlet syndrome usually involves physical therapy and pain relief measures. Most people improve with these approaches. In some cases, however, your doctor may recommend surgery. 

And one more note:

“Virginia has an outstanding club,’’ Morris said. “We’re that close to being a good club,’’ he added, holding his thumb and forefinger nearly together. “We had a chance to win all three games.

“We just have to keep battling and get it turned around.’’

For Miami (13-12, 5-4 Atlantic Coast Conference), which fell out of the top-25 rankings Monday, the game marked the third time in four ACC series that the Canes won the opener then dropped the next two. It happened against then-No. 3 Florida State, against Georgia Tech and now, Virginia (19-4, 7-2).

Always soooo close for the sorry Cane Sports Teams and fans ...

But yet still soooo far, far, far away for years and years to come ...

### The person handling the stadium deal for David Beckham and MLS today confirmed my February report that MLS and Beckham are seriously exploring having a joint stadium for MLS and UM football. In fact, he said MLS and UM are in "active discussions." Please see The Herald's story on the MLS stadium on our web site at this hour.

As I have written, MLS says it's still about 60 days from knowing whether a joint UM/MLS stadium is feasible. Even if MLS determines it's do-able, UM would need to somehow escape the final 18 years of its Sun Life Stadium lease for it to happen. UM has told MLS that it must have no fewer than 40,000 seats for UM to be interested in playing there. If the stadium is only for soccer, it likely would have a capacity of 20,000 to 25,000.

Yup

JIm Morris should be "this close" of being fired. Seriously. This is the worse coach in college baseball.


Jim Morris is stale,old, unimaginative and cant coach a game worth anything

This historically proud baseball program has been driven to theground by this stale has been man who is too arrogant to step down, and by the dumba55es who run athletics at UM

Says the little dweeb who spends ALL day and NIGHT on another teams blog, your one little weirdo with serious issues kid. Fat, dumb, and lazy is no way to go through life. By the way the game was on ESPN, oh but I'm sure you already knew that, because you were watching it, lol. They don't seem to put the Gators on tv much, wonder why they put a losing team on and not a champion caliber squad like the Gators? Hmmmmmm...

Calvin dont you EVER get tired of being a total IDIOT?
Paul flat out blamed himself for getting booted you IMBECLE!!! He was suspended not once but TWICE before getting kicked off the team. And do you really think he got suspended for his first offense?? I guarantee you he got multiple chances before the FIRST suspension.
We have dozens of players graduating and staying out of trouble year in and out and the one example you come up with is this one?
YOURE A COMPLETE MORON!!!!!!

CALVIN YOURE DUMBER THAN A BAG OF ROCKS!!!!

I think that post said it best, felt it was worth reposting.

Best wishes to D. Thompson for a full recovery. The team really misses him. If UM baseball continues to struggle all year. the UM Admin. will show just how committed they are to athletics. If Morris is not let go, it will tell you everything you need to know about what the top brass think about the state of athletics at this University. The baseball Program is really suffering and has been for several years.

Wishing David the best. TOS can be problematic,
and I hope he makes a full recovery!

I'd like to throw out a in our thoughts and prayers out to Big Jim Kelly who's oral cancer is back and spreading. He's going to have another surgery to remove it. Stay strong JK, one of the ALL TIME GREATS on and off the field.
