She is in a cast and sling.She was in severe pain all day .

A teacher had looked at her hand in class and said it didn't look good at all. The child has had other broken bones so she knows what it feels like and knows the symptoms of broken bones.No one would give her the chance to call home or even get Pain medication that is sitting in their office.
