Bad Day Boarding!

 This Christmas I got a new snowboarding. We actually purchased it way back on Black Friday so I have been dying to try it out. I snowboarded a bunch growing up but hadn't been in a few years. Devan is a really big snowboarder and has been for many years! So we were both really excited to go for the first time this year! We also got TONS of snow these past few days!

We also went up with 3 of Devan's friends. Here are two of them, the other was running a little late. 

So after taking a bunch of pictures we headed up the ski lift. We started going down the mountain, about half way down the hill Devan decided he wanted to teach me a few things. I tried it out and ended up catching an edge. I went to catch myself by putting my hands out (even though I have been told a million times not to) and fell right on my wrist. The second I fell the next words that came out of my mouth were "Devan I broke my wrist". 

I laid there for about 10 minutes hoping the pain would stop but it didn't. I told Devan I could ride down the hill with it but that we should probably have it looked at. 

The ski patrol looked at it and told me I should be done for the day so I could go get it x-rayed. They wrapped it up and we headed to the doctor.

We got to the Urgent Care and got some X-rays, which was SO painful. They confirmed my wrist was in fact broken. :(

I am now in a soft cast for 3 days until the swelling goes down. Then I have to get a cast for 6-8 weeks. My wrist actually broke in a few different places. Right now all the bones are still in alinement so they don't  have to do surgery but if they move at all in the next few days I might have to get surgery! So I am crossing my fingers that that won't happen.

So blogging for the next little bit might get put on hold because typing with one hand, which happens to be my left hand is pretty hard!!
