*SNAP* is never a good noise to hear, especially when it comes to your finger.

Matt came home from Jiu Jitsu on Wednesday night with a swollen & bruised pinky finger.  He doesn’t know exactly how he did it, other than he was doing his thing, and then everyone heard a SNAP and then his finger hurt real bad.


After much deliberation, we decided yesterday to go to urgent care & get an x-ray.  Thanks BethAnn for your professional advice.  Turns out, it is, indeed broken.  He has a “spiral fracture” on the bone between the knuckle that meets the hand & the 1st knuckle on your finger.  Fortunately he only has to wear a splint for 3-4 weeks & it should heal just fine.  Unfortunately, he can’t Jiu Jitsu for 3 weeks.  Total bummer.
