If It Is Broken, Fix It

Perhaps you recall a couple of weeks ago I mentioned that Yu-Jin may have broken his arm. He went to school the next day before going to the doctor, whose diagnosis was that the arm wasn't broken but it may be severely bruised and quite painful for some time.

Fast foward two weeks and I have had to dry Yu-Jin after his shower and help him change in and out of shirts. At night time he has been waking up in pain. Miky took him to Princess Margaret Hospital for Children this morning and as soon as the triage nurse touched his arm she sent him off for an X-ray.

"Yep, it's broken," was the diagnosis. He now has a plaster cast on and that will stay for the next two weeks.

Tough kid, I must say.

Q. When Miky took Yu-Jin to the doctor, did he not think to x-ray his arm? Is money that tight they have to save money for crash victims and stabbings etc, they don't think it advisable to x-ray a child's arm? He had trouble moving his fingers, didn't he?
