Unbelievable... Marge, sorry you have had to endure all this abuse. The judgemental attitude of some people is freakin' unbelievable. Especially considering YOU are the one who is there to see it first hand.
Haven't any of you judgemental posters been hurt before? Here's how it goes... You go to the ER and they take x-rays... the x-rays come back negative (of course) because you have a soft tissue injury, just like nearly ALL ski injuries... If you have a fracture, you pretty much know it before you get there. If it's a displaced fracture, you definitely know it...
Anyway, so no fracture... Here you go, Mr. Patient.... here is a set of crutches ($250), an immobilizer brace (mainly to create the illusion that we actually did something for you - $300), and a prescription for 800mg Motrin. (wait a minute, can't I just take 4 ordinary, over the counter Ibuprofens?) Oh, and go see an orthopedic specialist as soon as possible.
So basically, Marge simply cut out the bullshit trip to the ER, BECAUSE SHE IS AN ER NURSE!!!! Do you think she's never seen this type of thing before???
