Jarman told WFTV her 8-year-old son tried not to look at his wound.
"We had to have surgery. When the bite happened, it did some damage to the joint and chipped some of the cartilage off the bone so they went and did surgery," Jarman said.
Aadyn will have to see an orthopedic specialist when he returns to Indiana later in the week. His mom said she's thought about the risk of a possible shark bite before, but it always seemed unlikely.
"That's alway been a fear of ours. And I wasn't necessarily afraid that we were going to get bit while we were there, but it's already been in the back of our minds," Jarman said.
The boy is still in some pain, but is recovering at Holmes Regional Medical Center.
