Brr...

It is a mess outside! 3 or 4 inches of snow with a thick crust of snow on top. The ice is thick enough that unless I stomp, I slide around on top of it. I just took Benny out for a potty break and a car got stuck on our unplowed street. A man driving behind her had to help her turn and get parked. Took them 10 minutes to get that car 20 feet. I sure hope they plow soon! Luckily I can work from home most days.

The arm I fell on still hurts. It actually hurts a little more than it did a couple days ago. There is a constant ache, and a sharp pain if I do anything with it. However, I have a full range of movement (painful as it is) and the bruising and swell is light. It has been nearly a week - should it still hurt so much? (Brock - you are alway my medical advisor!) I did hit it really, really hard. Danny says I am fine since I can move it, but I am starting to worry something it wrong in there. I can't go anywhere today anyway.

Nothing happening here for Valentine's day. Danny doesn't celebrate it. Some years I get him something anyway - usually some coffee for Starbucks or whatever, but the crappy weather has kept me from the stores the last few days. We are poor anyway. I don't need anything to know he loves me. And, Benny said he'd be my Valentine - right after he finishes chewing on my shoe.

I wouldn't go by the fact you can move it or not. Unless you had a compound fracture it's entirely possible that you can still move it. Since it's getting worse with time I'd maybe go see the doctor. When I broke my thumb I just assumed it was sprained, I could move it and it didn't really hurt much, it was just bruised a bit and a little swollen. It could be nothing but if it is a break it might heal wrong and then you could be in for arthritis and whatnot in the future. :(

Awww... nice of Bennie to break in your shoes for you. They'll be more comfortable that way. That is if they aren't... you know... squishy afterwards.

Doug has it right. It can be partially fractured. Go get it checked out. STAT (that's what they say in the hospitals right?)

It could be only sprained,..
... but it could be also a partial fracture or a full one. That it hurts more bad as at the day it happend isn't a good sign. I reread the event in the past entry of yours. You sayed there that you hit the stairs/ground with the elbow. So there could be also a damage to other parts of the elbow joint.
You should definately see your house doctor, so that he could have a look at it. Better be safe then sorry.
