Volleyball Injury page

I have been meaning to do this page for years! I did the journaling way back when this happened, which is a good thing because I forgot some of the details already! Sorry if the pictures gross anybody out, me and my friends are almost all nurses so we think it's cool cuz it's a pretty impressive dislocation/break, lol!

I'll give you the recipe, then after that I'll add the journaling for those who want to know the story.
  • Stamps: Sporting
  • Paper: Baja Breeze, Holiday Treasures DSP (retired)
  • Ink: Baja Breeze Close to Cocoa, Choc Chip marker
  • Other: Riding Hood Red ribbon, paper piercer with mat pack, distressing tool from cutter kit


What a great way to spend Valentine's Day. It was a Tuesday night, so Jamie and I had volleyball, of course! Things were going great, good volleys & enough players. Then, I had my back to the net, jumped to dink a ball over, & felt an impact to my pinky. I grabbed my hand, looking around to see if it the ball made it over the net. Everyone was staring at me. I guess it was loud. Then Mark says "Did you jam your finger?" I said "I think so." I looked down at my finger and said "Nope. Jamie we need to go to ER." My finger was S shaped! We went right over & got right in, They asked if I could tolerate having xray without something for the pain (which was 6/10) I said yes, they xrayed it, did a nerve block (cause by now it was an 8/10!) & I did not want to feel it going back into place. Then they xrayed it again & sent me home. In the middle there somewhere, Jamie had gone to pick up Charlene from a Speech meet & they were both there when they put it back in place. They were both fascinate (rolling eyes here) The hospital staff were kind of rushing with me because they had been alerted to a plane that was going to try to land without landing gear & they thought they were going to get casualties. But the plane landed safely! And yes, I played volleyball the next week, with my broken finger!
