Sophie hurt her hand last Friday evening whilst messing about on the way to bed. Placated with arnica remedy, arnica cream and calpol she made it through to yesterday when whilst we were at swimming a friend’s mum who is a dr in A&E had a little look at it and suggested it might be a good idea to go and get it checked out. So we did….
It turns out little lady has a broken metacarpal. We exited the hospital with two of her fingers taped together and a sling with a future appointment to visit the orthopedic dept. Sophie is most chuffed. She gets all the glory, sympathy, pe and chore excuses without having to have a cast on her arm.
