i dont really know what made me what her seen, just the way she would use her hand, but not properly, she would avoid using it, she could pick up somehting but gingerly, didnt seem able to rotate her hand, got very very upset when she couldnt hold her toast to eat in the morning after she did it, and just the way she cried seemed different.
Both me DH and the admiting Dr thought soft tissue damage. the Dr was almost certain it was a sprain but did a xray "just to be sure".
she has her hard cast on now.
when we got there i saw her xray the break looks like some one took a white pencil and drew a wonky line on her xray. the Dr said she will be in a cast for 2 weeks, then sent us to get her proper cast done. the tech took one look at her temp cast and exclaimed "Oh, she kept it on!" me and dh looked at each other, she ahd warned him the day before "she make take it off" we both thought she ment the sling, not the cast, she hardly touched her cast, other than to pull fluff out of it. She asked us and the Dr if it would be OK to "complete" the cast instead of doing a new one as the temp one was in a perfect position, Dr agreed, we thought yeah, less trauma for DD, quicker and cheaper for the NHS. we went in, DH sat with her and immediatly she started fighting him, i tried, sat down, offered her the breast she nursed, the tech checked her cast, added some padding, DD started crying then spent the entire 10 mins alternating between crying and nursing while i rocked her and the tech quickly got the hard layer applied. when she finished DD nurse a few more moments, decided she wanted the other side then looked bewilderd when we said it was done.
she is fine. about 10 mins after we got home she noticed she could made funny sounds by rubbing it against stuff.
the Dr seemed a bit surprised that she had no further painkiller from 1pm yesterday afternoon, she has not seememd to need any so we havent given any. and that she slept all night (all night for DD2 is from when i put her in her cot which was around 10pm till 5.30 then she came in with me till 6.30)
i made her a crochet "glove" to go over it for when she ate as i dint want it getting wet, and while she slept as the cast was rough.
