Kayla came home yesterday saying Ive hurt my hand ,I fell over & hit it on a concrete windowsill so being the concerned mum I am I said oh yes & started talking about something else!! now I'm not really callous but if like me you have lived with this child for 21 years with all her bumps & bruises you get a bit immune !! so anyway after watching her try to peel her prawns with one hand & her elbow!! I had a closer look at it & said I think we need to go see about this
So theres an hour spent waiting to see a doctor at the medical clinic, now I hate to sound racist in any way but boy for just once I would like to have a doctor who you can understand when they talk to you, I didnt go in with her , I mean she is 21!! when she came out she was not happy he only said a couple of sentances to her which she couldnt understand plus he mumbled!! After twisting it about which killed her, then asked her when her last period was !!! he says dont know whats wrong doesnt look bruised to me ...ok....off to the Hospital where the triage nurse says oh that looks nasty here have some pain killers 30 mins later one daughter with wrist in plaster!!!.....Will certainly let the clinic know that outcome....doc at the hospital was not impressed when we related the first part of the story basically he could of done more harm than good by twisting it ...plus even I could see that it didnt "look right" & I have no medical experiance at all .. so shes in a trauma cast till next week when we go to the fracture clinic for more xrays but its looks as if it may be 6 weeks in plaster....she was so disappointed that she didnt get a bright pink one last night!!
