My brother fractured his wrist.

BroThis is my brother.  We look exactly the same, except he’s a boy, and I’m a girl, last I checked.

He’s extremely athletic, and when I’m at home, usually we do something fun together, sometimes running related, as pictured above.

So imagine how much I almost died when I got this text from my mom around 11:30 yesterday morning.

So my mom said Little Derek was really complaining that his wrist was hurting, and this morning, she took him to the ortho to get it set.

Poor kid.  I’m so sad!

Tell me about your broken bones.  Have you ever broken a bone?

I have, and it wasn’t pretty.  Happy Thursday, y’all!
