fractured

Monday morning we got a call from Olivia's school that there had been an accident. Olivia had slammed her fingers in the heavy metal gym doors. She was bleeding and upset and obviously in a lot of pain. Her mom was able to pick her up and take to the ER where Jared met them so her mom could go to work. Jared and Olivia spent the next 3 or 4 hours in the hospital. After x-rays, shots, an IV, being knocked out so her nail beds could be repaired, and finally splinted, this is what Olivia's hand looked like upon arriving home.



She has three broken fingers but they should all heal up nicely. So should her nail beds. She is a lucky girl that she has all her fingers. It could have been so much worse. She's been in pain and unfortunately the injured hand is her dominant one, but all in all she's handling it very well. And apparently her classmates have been wonderful about volunteering to help her. Here's to a speedy recovery, Liv!
