Before we left for the orthopedist yesterday, I told my husband that I was still holding out hope that the new x-ray would show that my arm wasn't broken.... And my dream came true! Basically, the first x-ray taken at urgent care apparently wasn't clear because of the swelling. The urgent care doctor did tell me they would most likely take another x-ray and I'm so glad they did!! It turns out I seriously thwacked my arm, bruised the bone (causing the major bump sticking out of my arm) and injured the connective tissue between the bones (spraining my forearm - I did not even know you could do that). So yes, it's quite painful; yes, I'm supposed to wear a sling/brace; but NO - it's not broken. And I'll be better much faster. He thinks a week if I take it easy on the arm (boo - no yoga).
I'm so relieved! =D
