Thinking of a tail in a cast makes me giggle.

Is there a veterinarian on the house? Bella, seen here
, stuck her tail out a car door as it was closing. Big yelp, no blood, I can feel a lump about halfway down. She's also carrying it straight down which is not normal.

So I'm pretty sure I just broke the poor girl's tail. I have administered 3 baby aspirin based on a weight of 45 lbs to bring down any inflammation and to control any pain although other that the carry she seems not to mind it.
What do I need to watch for while it heals and can I expect her tail to resume it's formerly horizontal posture?
