Side view, can you see the cracks?
You can see the three middle fingers are cracked. The x-ray tech was kind enough to let both my son and me see the x-rays before the Dr. did. She thought that it was pretty clear he had a break. From what I could gather the proper name for this kind of break is a spiral fracture. That sort makes sense when you look at these x-rays. She even told him he could have copies for souvenirs. We have to go to Primary Children's Hospital Monday. Because of the wide "crack" they will need surgery to bring them back in alignment. By the way this was a sledding accident! Yikes!!
Neither Charlie of myself have ever broken a bone, we were hoping the same would be true for our kids! We decided that Chad must need to drink more milk!! Any advice Uncle Ben?
