Danielle and her cast

Danielle and her cast, originally uploaded by Carl's Photography.

Taken with a Nikon D80.

* Exposure: 0.017 sec (1/60) [+]
* Aperture: f/4 [+]
* Focal Length: 85 mm [+]
* ISO Speed: 200 [+]

Strobist info: White wall exposed for white with 2 fluorescent banks (1 left 1 right) each with 2 bulbs (4' 40 watt 5000k). SB-800 camera right through white shoot through umbrella. SB-600 behind left at 7' height with pringles can snoot for hair light.

Danielle went out to check on Angel. Evidently, Angel got excited running around and the chain caught her leg. It yanked her leg out and she fell with her left arm outstretched. Danielle and I went to the ER at St. Mary's hospital. We were there from 9-1:30. I went to the xray room with her. As soon as they were scanned in I could see the fractures. The distal end of the ulna and radius were fractured. There was not much displacement. Her pain was controlled prior to going by giving her some ibuprofen. The had her hold her arm in the 90 degree angle bend and created a fiberglass cast. The pediatric orthopedic resident came to do the cast after finishing a surgical case.

Danielle said she had been hoping she would break her arm so that she could have a cast. I asked her to not hope to break anything else.
