As the post says. My daughter has a BROKEN ARM. She got injured this past Friday night. She was getting back onto the bus after eating at McDonalds. Some older boys where pushing and shoving and push some others into Courtney. She fell forward and her wrist went the opposite way. She did not know it was broken or anything. They wrapped it up and iced it down. She was unable to play her music because of the injury. She got home around 1am from the game. The bus driver tells me what happens and I check out her hand. They tell me it is a minor sprang just to ice it down. So she slept with a ice pack on it all night. Well needless to say the next morning her arm was still swelled and I was really worried. She was suppose to have already been back at the school to be getting ready to head to Troy University for Band Day. This is when alot of bands come and join the college band on the field and preform for the fans during half time. Well she had to miss it this time. I loaded her up and we headed to the ER. We checked in and there was 5 people in front of us. I thought we was going to be there awhile, but we wasn't before we could get seated. They called her name for us to come to the back. We was in the room about 5 minutes when the nurse came in and found out what was wrong. She then exited the room and about 15 more minutes pasted and a X-Ray Tech came in and got us. We was off to get some x-rays. They took 4 x-rays. Then he took us back to our room and about 25 more minutes pasted by and a DR and a nurse come back in and told us it was broke. The nurse splinted her arm up and wrapped it. They could not put a cast on it due to it was so swelled. During this whole time Courtney is telling me if it was broke she wants a black cast. Well we went this morning to go get our cast and the Peds Orthopedic DR is not able to put on her cast today, because he is doing surgeries. They did unwrap it and rewrap it so her arm would not be moving since alot of the swelling has gone down. They sent us home and told us to be back in the morning at 8AM. They would take a couple more x-rays and put her cast on. As soon as she gets her cast I will take a picture and post it her for you all to see.
