but I’m pretty sure it’s broken good. Travis broke his wrist last night. Instead of X rays, I bring you STICK HAND!! This is basically what Travis’ wrist looked like on the Xrays. This is a palm side view of his left hand. He dislocated it AND broke it.
Did you KNOW that they are still practicing medieval medicine!?! Totally are.
I had no idea until last night, when I KID YOU NOT, they put his fingers in Chinese finger traps hooked up to a rolling rack (like the kind that they hang IV’s from, only this had five Chinese finger traps on it.) THEN they put his fingers in the traps, and hung a bunch of weighted bags from his ELBOW to pull that dislocated bone back into place. It worked, but SHEESH!!
How did he do this, you ask? Well, I’m so glad you did!! lol He was responding to an accident on the sand dunes here, and while he was assisting the Ambulance with the accident, he got a call to back up the city police officers at a known house. He didn’t want them to be stuck without backup, and was hurrying back to his vehicle on an ATV. It was dark, and he went over a dune that did not have a backside. He launched himself and the ATV quite a ways, and straight into the water/sand below. He’s really lucky that all he broke was his wrist. He’s in a lot of pain still, because we have to wait to have it set. That’s on Tuesday. Until then, he’s on pain meds, and just trying to stay out of serious pain. Hopefully the swelling will go down and the pain will go with it. I’m just glad that he’s not more seriously hurt.
