But not like this! You all will remember that the entire family went out to the Skate Night fundraiser for the school, right? Aaaaaaand you will remember that I blogged about Rebecca trying to miss running over a kid that fell in front of her, right? AAAANNNDDD you remember the fact that we had to leave because she landed hard and fell back on her hands, thus jamming her wrists? Well, the verdict is in. She broke not one, but BOTH of her wrists! I have a lovely CD of the x-rays to prove it. Yes, the hospital sent us home with a parting gift of her x-rays burned on to a CD-rom for us. (along with two splints, 4 ace bandages, plenty of gauze, and a sling for the worse break.)
I know it's hard to see in the pictures, but the cracks are there. The P. A. made sure to point them out to us on the screen at the hospital. Also, she has "wrinkled" the bones. WTF? Wrinkled it, you say? Um, yeah..... she hit so hard, she compressed her ulna on the right side and wrinkled it! Like when you bend a green stick and it wrinkle it. Yeah.... that. I am a little upset now. And to think, she danced through her recital with two broken bones! Now we have to make an appointment with an Ortho Doctor for next week and see if we need to have hard casts put on. I am hoping not. As it is, she will be missing out on most of the fun of our planned family reunion trip to Universal Studios & IOA. There is no way they are going to let her on the rides with two casted up arms. guess she and I will wait for everyone else in the family lounge!
