Broken wrist

My cell phone rang last night about 7:15 and it was Trent. When I picked it up he had already hung up so I tried calling back and it just rang. The house phone then rang. It was my friend's boyfriend. He said Trent was laying in Cissy's (gas station) parking lot. I said what. He is supposed to be at his dad's. Eli said I know. He said that his front tire came off his bike. He was loading Trent and the bike and bringing them home. Trent was crying cuz his arm hurt. It didn't really look mis-shapen or anything. I didn't know if I should take him to the ER or not so I called first nurse. She said what protocol is, is to elevate, put ice on it and check it every 20 minutes. She was asking some questions so I asked Trent and she said is that him crying. I said yes. She said that it must really hurt. Joe walks in and says to just take him to the ER. The first nurse said that is what she would do so off to the ER we go. I called his dad before I called first nurse to let him know that I had Trent and that he hurt his arm and that I might have to take him to the ER. He finally called back while I was talking to first nurse and left a message to ask if it was bleeding, if it needed stitches or what. I called him back and said no, it isn't bleeding and it doesn't need stitches. I didn't know if it was sprained or broke. Well, he broke both of the bones in his arm. One higher than the other so today I have to get him in to an orthopedic specialist to get a real cast put on. Hopefully he won't need pins or anything. We shall see later.
