My (possibly broken) Scaphoid Bone

If you never heard of the Scaphoid bone, well neither did I until yesterday, but the on my left wrist might be broken.  This all started back on Super Bowl Sunday when I took my daughter ice skating, and took a little spill.  Last week I had made an appointment to get the hand x-rayed, but the Dr. cancelled, and it was feeling better so I never rescheduled.  The hand though continued to have pain, even when not being used, so yesterday I had it x-rayed.  The x-ray does not show a break, but apparently x-rays can not conclusively see a break in the Scaphoid bone, so next up is an MRI on Thursday evening.  For now the hand is in a splint and in a fair amount of pain, not to mention slowing down my typing quite a bit.  I don’t know, going skating seemed like a good idea at the time, and Molly seemed to enjoy it, she even asked to go again this Sunday, but I am not sure how fast that is going to happen.

    Ice skating is definitely a safer activity for little girls than for their dads!!! Best of luck with the healing process. Try horseback riding next time 🙂
