writing this with left hand only, so this will be brief (for me).
in my indoor soccer game last night, while getting checked into the boards, I received my 1st broken bone (my right wrist). a pretty impressive run considering all the sports I play, how old I am and how clumsy I can be (just like lindsay lohan, didn't she have 3 wrist splints in 1 year? "uh, I tripped over Paris's dog...yeah, that's it.").
I didn't know that I had broken it, I knew it hurt like a bitch, but after taking a sub I went back on the field....and played some more. thought it was a little weird that I kept my hand balled up in a weak looking fist though.
the nurse on my team thought I could ice/advil it out to the a.m. "they're gonna have to wait for the swelling to go down if they're gonna cast it anyway." But after talking to my sister (also a nurse), she said i could have done some ligament damage and sleeping on it unsplinted could do more damage and for peace of mind go to the ER right away.
After waiting for awhile, and witnessing some interesting characters, one in particular being a homeless man and the Nurse Practitioner asking him, 'how much you drink a day, sir?", "a pint." "And pint of what?" "wild turkey." (nice), I was diagnosed with a non-displaced distal radial fracture. This is the good kind to get, because it means they DON'T HAVE TO RESET IT. I know I would have been a big baby had that had to happen.
Yeah, I got bored waiting, so I snapped some photos.
Here, you see the swelling has gone down a bit since the first photo:
So after they diagnosed me, they gave me the Michael Jackson splint and La Lohan Oxycodone script (which I really don't think I'll need/use) and now I have to see a Orthopedic surgeon.
So basically what this all comes down to is this:
MY HAIR IS GONNA LOOK LIKE CRAP FOR THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.
