DD broke her wrist at Dad's. Vent!
My kids are with their dad and the new GF this summer. Friday I get a call from DD1. She is distraught. The first thing of her mouth is "DD2 fell out of a tree." Of course, in the 5 second pause, my mind went nuts. Well, DD2 fell out of a tree and broke her wrist. Dad was having DD1 call me because he needed current insurance info. No problem, right? WRONG. He was waiting to take her to the hospital until he had the insurance info. Instead of just taking her right away because he didn't want to be stuck responsible for the hospital bill!
So, I wait to hear back and finally get the news that she has a broken wrist and they have temp casted it. She is doped up on morphine because they had to manipulate it back into place. The next morning I finally get to talk to her. DD2 tells me that since the new GF is a vet tech, she put some kind of temporary cast on her before they even took her to the hospital! WTH! Seriously? She could have caused more damage!
She is flying home today so I can make sure she gets proper treatment. Dad does not want to be responsible for anymore of her medical costs, even though he is responsible for half (we know we will never see any of it). I am just blown away at their lack of common sense.
