Yes. I said elbow. For those of you who don't remember (and well - that would be most of you. I don't believe I ever posted it on my blog but I know that Dakota did.) back in November of 2007, I fell while at my sister's house. When I slipped, I put my hands out in front of me to catch myself and ended up with a possible elbow fracture. Which I did nothing about.
After about a week or so, it was much better and it went on to rarely bother me. It would ache every now and again but nothing that I couldn't tolerate easily enough (and considering the pain I have on a 24 hour a day basis, it was more of an inconvenience than anything).
The last few weeks though the pain has become pretty bad. I think I must have injured it doing something (like lifting something that was too heavy. *whistling innocently* What? I never do that!) because it is painful every minute of the day. I need to remember to baby it for a few days and see if that eases it. I did google "fractured elbow head" and it turns out that it is rarely put in a cast anyway so I don't feel too bad for not following up on it. After all, I had a 2 year old and a 5 year old to care for at the time. I was busy.
In the meantime, I'm just going to say "It hurts!" and whine a bit. And you are the lucky ones I get to whine to because well...the kids just don't care. :)
