Broken Elbow

On March 2, my siblings and I were playing in the woods.  My little brother fell on a tree stump and broke his elbow.  We took him to the emergency room, after a long wait in the waiting room, the Doctor took us and checked my brother's x-rays.  Then a nurse wrapped it up with a splint and gauze, then put it in a sling.

We went in the emergency room around 6:30pm and got out just before midnight.  My little brother really wanted ice cream so we got him some from the only store open.  On March 8, he went to a specialist and got a blue cast. Luckily, he only has to wear the cast 3 weeks.  Here is a picture of the splint and gauze.
