Maestro has also been cycling over the summer and doing quite a number of km each weekend and this weekend he set out with one of his mate to ride along the beach bike path heading to Brighton. They got just past Glenelg when we got a phone call from him to say that he had swerved to miss a woman walking and the bike hit some sand and slid and he rolled off and had hurt his elbow.
Hubby headed down in the car to see what damage had been done and pick him up. By the time they got back his left elbow was pretty swollen and hubby thought we needed to head to emergency... to tell the truth I didn't think it was too bad as Maestro wasn't making to much of a fuss I thought at worst it was dislocated. Maestro had a shower and then we piled into the car and headed to the WCH anticipating a long wait in emergency.
3 hours later, after X-ray's and consultation we were told that he had fractured his elbow and he was put in a half cast. We head back to the Fracture Clinic after Easter for him to be put in a full cast.
He has a kayaking camp in 3 weeks and we just told him he couldn't go but he has other plans and the teacher has said he can go as long as he gets a fibre glass cast. Hopefully the hospital will just say no.
The sunset at the beach last night was fantastic so I will leave you with a calming picture.
