Wordfuse (Emergency Edition)

See this example: egads!
emerciful (adjective): emergency + merciful = a word used to describe the medical staff* who kindly helped a teenager I know after he crashed his snowboard today. Riveted, I watched them yank the teen's wrist back from its perverse "S" shape back to normal. *dry-heaves*

*Medical staff who are not so emerciful might be described as emerciless.

Yep I agree medicos are Heros. Especially the few who have brought my Hubby back to life on a number of occasions.

Sounds gruesome. I hope he heals quickly and well.

I can't find the right combo of letters to type the sound I made when I read this. *aooowowa* Maybe?

Hope he's healed up quickly.

*aiee* That's not right. No wrist should do that.

The sound of a wrist being yanked back in the correct shape should sound something like SNAP, CRACKLE, POP, SCREAM :-).

@SIAW Not bad at all.
@alittlesprite You know better than any of us. I'm glad you've had good experiences with so many stressful situations.
@LoC It didn't take long for him to recover considering all the attention he received, especially from the 15 year old girls in his class who wanted to sign his cast.
@Nicole Nice onomatopoeia.
@Windsmoke Fairly accurate interpretation.
