We discussed the ice right? And I said something yesterday about this freaking crap melting. Have I mentioned that I freaking hate the ice?
I had just gotten Kelsie home from her Daddy’s. She was asleep so I grabbed her out of her seat, bundled her blanket around her and started towards our building. As I turned the corner off our sidewalk, WHAM. I was on the ground. Kelsie was awake and “ouchie ouchie”-my arm on fire. I threw myself to the side opposite Kelsie to what I hope “padded” her part of the fall but man oh man.
Got her inside and she was fine but my arm was on fire. Took some maneuvering but got the coat off to see I busted my elbow open. Now I know that I can be a bit of a wimp sometimes but this HURT. My fingers tingly and all the way into my shoulder in pain. I waited about an hour and pain still did not go away so I called Urgent Care. They made me talk to First Nurse for triage and gah dangit-We need to see you in the ER. Two ER trips in less than a month. Damnit.
After two x-rays that hurt like hell, sent home with my arm in a sling, pain meds, and to follow up with my doctor. I’m a little annoyed though that on my discharge papers, it says there’s a possible fracture once swelling goes down. Could we tell me that NOW versus when I get to my Doctor in a few days? Here I thought taking the pain meds, I’d be knocked out. Nope. I still hurt. The edge is gone but owie. Yup that still hurts.
So-that Sunday for relaxing? Yeah didn’t happen.
