    Seems to be acting more like herself this AM --------hope it lasts.

    Waited a day hoping for better news. This is a good sign but keep watch for behavior changes that may indicate something more serious going on. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    Saw a orthopedic PA I thought she said today; new x-ray shows a break; looks like a green stick fracture.

    Clean still in much pain and on pain meds and a strap on splint.

    I hope it improves and heals up quick.

    Ugh! What's the prognosis on one of those?

    Which bone? Fibula in the leg or up in the forearm ulna or radius?

    Knee must be getting somewhat better since she wanted to go for a walk albeit slow.

    Sorry to read this, Ned. Hope her recovery is as painless as possible.

    Well, you only have to worry about her right jab for a few weeks, but, if they give her the hard fiberglass cast on the left arm, she will be lethal in about 2-3 weeks ;)

    Tell Clean I am praying it heals up without complication o:)

    That beats what a co-worker did - he cut is right ulna in half with a radial arm saw!

    Prayers for a fast healing on the ulna and knee.  o:)
    Does this mean that you're on KP duty for a few weeks? And the entire 'barracks cleanup crew'? If it does then you'll at least have good supervision!  :)
    And if the wrist IS in a cast, I hope they've improved on how you can get some soap and water in there to relieve the itching. All I ever got was the old plaster of Paris casts, and they itched like crazy underneath after about a week.
    And again, best wishes and prayers for Mrs. Clean's speedy and painless recovery!

    Funny thing about field days in the Corps.....no matter which unit, or where I was stationed....they always fell on Thursday. 

    Don't know if it's true, but as it was explained to me, if scheduled on, say, Tuesday, the end results were usually unsatisfactory because we could always do it again on Wednesday. But, if you didn't do it right on Thursday, that took you into Friday....which screwed up your weekend.

    The knee will be looked at Thurs.; however, it seem real good. She has been out walking 2 miles on it with no pain. Shoulder seem better and bruising is quite colorful.
