Wow, it's been a good long stretch, nearly 16 years,3 kids and no broken bones. Until Saturday. Dd broke her arm where it connects to the wrist and depending who you ask, the radiologist or the orthopaedic, it's right on or right above the growth plate.
We have to go back in a week for a check with xrays. If it's drifted she may need surgery (according to the orthopaedic) The Radiologist said it would definately need reduction (surgical) when we were leaving the ER and so I'm so confused. Pleasantly surpised because the othopaedic said there was a chance she wouldn't. I wish now I had asked him to put odds on that.
The orthopaedic cast it today. And another thing that doesn't make sense, health insurance doesn't cover waterproofing the cast. Leading to the question what is health insurance good for anyhow?
And since I'm just a mom, I'm hoping that no surgery will be needed and that I listened to the right guy. My boss broke her wrist and didn't get surgery and it's still messed up.
I said I was gonna stop worrying when we saw the orthopaedic. LOL
