When I picked my daughter up from school on Thursday, I asked her about her left arm. She had just had a flu shot that afternoon. What I got, was tears.
She explained to me that she had put her right arm up as a natural reflex to prevent a kicked volleyball from coming at her head. The ball smacked her in the hand causing her right wrist to flex backward and hyperextend. Her wrist was swollen and a little bruised. I wouldn't have much concern, except she has broken the same wrist three years ago rollerskating.
I took her to her doctor Friday and she said to splint and wait a few days before taking the x-ray. This is the third day since the accident and but it is more swollen and hurts the same as "last time" I will take her to get x-rayed tomorrow. As a mom, to me, it feels like it is broken. :(
::sigh:: I guess this is better than talking to a facial surgeon or dental if she wouldn't have stopped the ball with her hand :) I am trying to see the bright side.
