Just a quick note from Dr. Dad.  I will let Lulu tell the story….  Nothing like throwing a fracture into the mix before we go.  The ridiculous thing is that this was a video game injury.  Well, at least we have a couple of weeks to get things healed up and I think I can manage this while we are gone….  Now onto lulu!

Lulu’s big hospital adventure…

Wilson and I were playing Mario Kart 8 on the Nintendo Switch, and he stood right in front so I couldn’t see the TV.  So, I kicked him on his butt onto the couch so I could see.  Then he stood back up and sat on purpose, but more as fun.  He then I tried to stop him from falling on me, and he was too heavy, so he kept coming.  Then my wrist bent way back, and I heard a crack.  Then I started bawling.

(At this point, I ….Rich the typist … heard screaming and thought she was imitating the karts on the screen … oops, bad parent moment).

Then Wilson screamed up to mom and dad that I was hurt.  At this point, daddy came running downstairs, while Wilson continued playing Mario Kart.

Then we put ice on ice and wrapped it up, and had supper.  Later, we went to the hospital and saw a nurse (Megan) who snuck us in the back way (membership has its privileges).  I went for my x-ray with a nice x-ray person, then we saw Dr. Dan.  He told us that he thought it was broken (Saltr 2 distal radius, undisplaced), and then we went and put a cast on.  That’s the end of the story.



—-Dad back here…  she is in good spirits, and have to reassess with our good friend Dr. Mikhail next week, and probably have the cast off in three weeks (August 21st when we are in Austria).  Lots of fun and adventures!
