First ED visit!

This past weekend we had our first ED visit. Baby girl rolled over funny and dislocated her elbow. She had something called a nurse maid's elbow. It usually happens in older kids, but can happen in infants. After she rolled over funny Joe heard a "pop." We kept trying to convince ourselves she was using her arm, but she wasn't. :(  We took her to the hospital where I work.  The doc offered to let me try to pop it back in place.  I've done it on other kids, but I didn't want to on my own.  After a quick rotation of her elbow, she was using her arm again!
