O Fractious Day

In addition to scraping various parts of her skin on Manford's asphalt, Jane broke her wrist in a spectacular scooter fall two days ago. The urgent care clinic visit Tuesday night netted a fetching splint, but this morning's trip to Duke orthopedics meant an upgrade to a real cast. It's orange, and she's very proud.

There were three breaks: ulna and distal radius buckle fractures and a thin crack extending up the middle of the distal radius. Before Tuesday, I didn't know those words.
