Very sorry it happened! :( Hope you'll feel better soon!

I must ask....... Why does someone think to snap photos of your messed up arm while you are waiting?

Thanks guys.....had a very sleepless night as I don't know how to position my arm to make it painfree for sleeping. So in turn I was waking up every half hour....despite pain meds.

Always- Two reasons they snapped pics 1) my friend took (before my dad got there), while my other friend ran to get ice, so she could send it to her dad to ask how we should go about immobilizing and then moving it and 2) my dad took because I asked him to. I didn't want to look at it again because I needed to stay calm so I told him to take a picture so I could look at it later. You can see in the one picture my dad took the board they were shimmying under my arm at that time to make it immobile.=)

I am surprised that someone did not just call 911.

That was my fault....I told them not to because I didn't want the EMTs to try to pop it back into place(they did that to my cousin when he dislocated his shoulder and my cousin who feels no pain screamed) I have a high pain tolerance but not that high.

All in all from the fall to the time I made it to the hospital was 20 minutes. It took 5 mins for my dad to get there and 5 mins to get to the hospital the other 10 was getting ice,vet wrap, and the board moving it to the board(me telling them to stop a lot, and then moving me to the truck. We had called ahead so they had people outside ready to get me.

Xray pics!!!

Thanks guys! It definitely hurts probably as much as you think it does haha. Trying to be a good sport about it though =)

I finally figured out how to post my xrays(had to convert picture type to jpeg)

The first 2 are the dislocation and fractured wrist.
The last 4 are after they popped my elbow back into place.

Sorry you hurt yourself, but the elbow dislocation is VERY obvious in the X-rays--thanks for posting. Very cool! I can't see the wrist fracture (good thing I'm not a doctor), though--can you tell us where it is?

It was bound to happen eventually. I couldnt stay a member of the unbroken bones club forever haha

Now you're scarin' me! I have 11 years riding and have never broken a bone. Lots of close calls, though.

Hope you get better soon. Left arm? Are you right handed? Still can write. How'd you type all those long messages. One key at a time?
ARgh!
