Merry Christmas to me! :-) Some of you may know already via Facebook but for the rest of you, here it is: I fractured my elbow. My right (predominant hand) elbow.
My friends and I went ice skating yesterday afternoon. Now I can actually do this pretty well. I was teaching my boyfriend how to skate backwards. He was starting to get the hang of it and at that point I was trying to show off. He slipped and fell close to the wall and had something to grab onto. I was a few feet away and just went flailing and plummeted downward. I remember hitting my butt, elbow and wrist-which was first I don't know, but my guess was the elbow. A shooting pain went all the way though my arm. Josh helped me up and we went to sit. I thought I just bruised it and it would be OK. I sat out and watched the boys skate. We left with my arm feeling slightly better. I had to go shopping with my dad for my mom. That's when things got worse. From all the movement and dodging people my arm was throbbing. I came home in tears and mom took me to urgent care for some x-rays. I could tell they didn't look good. The PA said it looked like a fracture but they want a radiologist to confirm. So today I am still sitting here waiting to hear, so we can schedule an orthopedic visit. I wouldn't be so anxious except the fact that it was the weekend and Christmas weekend on top of that. I have been in a sling since yesterday and sleeping....well not so much fun. Whiskey knows something is up but still not sure. I do have holiday pictures of er by the tree that I will get up soon. And we are SUPER excited to see whats inside our SS box.
