After getting back from LA, we had a family swim Sunday night. The pool was only about 85 degrees so my thin-blooded self worked my way towards the hot tub.
But getting out of the pool I slipped and extended my left arm to catch my fall. As I hit the side of the pool I heard a pop and felt tremendous pain in my wrist. It didn\’t swell or bruise too bad so I decided no bones were broken. But it hurt like a you-know-what.
By Tuesday I decided to see my dr. She examined my wrist and said it probably wasn\’t broken, but did x-rays, put on a wrist support, and sent me on my way.
She called later and said the X-rays showed a fracture. I was able to get an appointment with the orthopedic dr for that afternoon.
In the meantime, I got Quinn from school and we went to the orthodontist.
My xray. The fracture is the horizontal white line right above the arrow on the bone. You can also see that the bone buckled a little bit on the side with the piece pointing out.
They sent me to the Cast Room where I had my choice of sleeve color and cast color. And did I want glitter? I was thrown off by all these choices but of course I settled on blue. They change the cast every 2 weeks so I will be better prepared next time. But this is my life for the next 6 weeks.
