The kids have been amazingly good today, and really helpful as well, especially given that they have spent most of the afternoon in the car while they took me to the hospital to get my wrist x-rayed.
Long story short, and 7 x-rays later, I still don't know whether or not I have fractured it as there seems to be some disagreement between the person that saw me and the consultant that he spoke to for confirmation. Because I don't live here, so would be unable to attend the fracture clinic follow ups, he has suggested that I go to A&E at home so that they can send me for a CT scan which is the next option in their protocol!!!
So guess what I will be doing on Monday? At least they are emailing all the x-rays so I won't have to go through that again. In the mean time I have been given a splint which helps a little, although it is also making my hand ache more.
Off to get some pain killers before I go to bed.
