So after several hours, we come to find out that the teen's freak kickball accident resulted in a broken arm. Just above the wrist. Ouch.
When I gathered the teen from school, her arm was wrapped in a newspaper, which is apparently accepted EMS practice, with a shirt for a sling. Who knew? Here, we have upgraded her to a magazine and kicky scarf.
Now, it's a splint and real sling, and tomorrow we get whatever the orthopedist wants her to have.
She has inherited my grace and dignity, obviously.
