Yesterday was my long day at work. I didn’t clock out until 6:30pm and got home about 10 minutes later. When I got home, I took off my coat chatted to Mike a few and asked Raven how school was. She gave her usual ho hum answer of “fine”. I was just about ready to change out of my scrubs when Raven said “Mommy, when I was in gym today I hurt my finger really bad when I was trying to catch the volley ball”. She held up her hand and her ring finger, right above the knuckle, was bruised and swollen pretty bad. She said she was in pain. When asked why she didn’t tell her gym teacher, this is how the conversation went:
Raven: “All three fingers hurt and I thought it would have to be one heck of a coincidence that I really hurt them all so I didn’t think it was a big deal. But then in 7th period this finger (holding up the blue and swollen one) was still hurting.”
Me: “Why didn’t you tell Daddy when you got home from school?”
Raven: “I thought you got home a little after I did and I was going to tell you and Daddy together then when Daddy told me you didn’t get home until later on tonight, I was playing on the computer and I forgot.”
Yep, she forgot, Anywho, I took her to medbrook and they x-rayed her finger and found that she did not break it but she did tear some ligaments And it will take about 3 to 4 weeks to heal.
Raven acting goofy while we what for the doctor to come back with the results of her x-ray. Taken with my cell phone.
