Second plaster in three days

After the work in progress came a cast in progress. Pretty blue though better than the first white one.

I don't know what the health providers overseas are like but I can tell you here in our small town some of them really suck.
A member of my family broke her arm 6 weeks ago went for xray and was told no break.
A fortnight later when the pain was unbearable went back got 2nd xray clearly shows break. Ok in a cast and two weeks later has a third xray to see how its healing and the break has moved out of line.
Off comes the plaster and she has had to get around with the broken arm no plaster until a visit to the big city hospital can be arranged to reset arm.
OK I only broke my thumb and it was seen to pretty quickly but had to go back two days later as the cast was so loose I could almost slip my arm out of it.
Must say the new fibre glass cast is so much more comfortable.

What is the ER like in your towns ?
Does it take forever to get emergency medical treatment?
Or am I just a whinger?

You are a man with a broken thumb and a big cast!

ER's can be a challenge anywhere...they are not my
favorite place to be for any reason. I remember an
ambulance taking me to the hospital once and they *lost*
me in a room for 5.5 hours. They thought' I'd had a heart
attack...gosh! If I had, I'da probably been dead!

Hope you are mendin' soon!

Just a little food for thought.............
If you really want to be happy, nobody can stop you...
