so at kristen’s little bday gathering last night, we decided to play red rover…
it resulted in this….
the three above pics are when i was waiting for x-rays. the doc had already broken part of my band trying to remove my ring…by the time we got back to the doc my finger was still swelling…she had to cut it off….
yes, my broken ring in urine cup…
no, platinum does not bend…
my finger was broken badly. it broke all the way through right where the hand and finger meet..
had i known red rover was banned in schools, i probably would not have played with 10 grown men….what was i thinking? i thought if someone was running hard and fast i’d let go and they’d fall. well i tried to let go…my partner did not.
i immediately tried to remove my ring. no luck. i tried soaking my hand in pot of ice water to stop the swelling…that gave me tears. i went to bed and woke up with things so much worse. i went to doctors office that also offers after hour service. she said right away the ring must come off. she cut a small piece off the back of the band and tried to pry it apart. well, platinum does not bend. and those little gadgets hurt so freaking bad. hubby helped her. the piece cut out of the band gave me some relief. i went to x-ray then back to my patient room. within about 20 minutes the ring was tight again. she said she really wanted to get it off. after many tears of course i told her to do what she needed to. misery folks! my rings are soldered together. the pain of my hand and thought of my beautiful rings being ruined pretty much broke my heart 🙁
she said the break is bad and is sending me to a hand specialist. they are going to call me in the morning with my appt time. for now, they put on a splint cast thing. its half the hard stiff stuff then wrapped the rest of the way since another doc will need to see if within the next 48 hours. it hurts SO bad 🙁 they gave me pain meds…which make me want to barf mixed with metformin…not to mention i felt like they only worked for an hour 🙁
i think my mom is going to come help out for a few days. i can do nothing at all with my left arm/hand. hubby is being very helpful with everything…. dressing me and even dried me after my bath. i feel helpless and well just want to cry. uggggghhh.
luckily i use my iphone keypad with one hand….i have no idea how everything else is going to work… ill keep you all updated.
