Tenaj Posted November 29, 2011 Share Posted November 29, 2011 We sat in the ER last night for four hours waiting for the Dr. who was able to twist my dd's elbow/arm back into place in 15 seconds! Surely there has to be a better system for injuries like this. All of the urgent cares in our area were closed and I honestly don't know if they would have touched it. My dh was walking from one room to the other, holding our youngest's hand. She decided she didn't want to go and let her legs go out from under her. Immediate high pitched crying and arm plastered to her side. I knew right away what it was and did a quick google to confirm and we were off to the brand-new hospital in town. For four hours we waited with her not moving her arm at all or whimpering everytime it accidently shifted. Then miracle Dr. walks in, does a quick twist, takes her down the hall for a popsicle and my dd comes back waving the treat in the arm she hadn't moved for five hours. So thankful that it was an easy fix! It is ironic that it happened the way it did because my daughter loves to be swung around by her arms so that's over for a while!
