Makenna got her pink cast on today. Her follow up appointment is 6/17. If all is good on the xray, they will be able to take it off that day. Her birthday (and party) is on 6/18 so I'm excited that she might not have the cast for her birthday.

I saw the xrays from today. What a difference 5 and half days has made!! I can hardly even see the crack in her ulna and her radius looks MUCH better (a much smaller gap between the bones).

Anyway, here is a quick pix I took from my cell phone. Not great quality, but at least you get an idea. As you can see from the picture, she is in NO pain at all.

I'm so glad it is healing well and she seems to be handling it all just fine! Is it the type of cast that can get wet? Cori could even take baths with hers, which was awesome. Keeping my fingers crossed that she can get it off before her party!

it's so wrong for a cast to be so cute - and look at her smile! Glad she seems to be feeling better - it is amazing how quickly they heal isn't it? Hopefully that cast will be off quickly and it'll just be a memory...

Sam - she did great when they were putting it on. She just watched intently and kept so still. Never made a peep and never moved a muscle. The lady putting on the cast commented at least 10 times about how good she was for the whole thing.

Kelly - it's not a waterproof cast. We asked about it. They said they had them available, but did not recommend them for the length of cast that she had on. If it stopped before the elbow, they would have recommended it. But, because it's such a high cast they said the water would collect in the elbow and with it's constant contact on her skin it would start breaking down her skin. So, we have to stay dry. It's going to be harder to put a bag over this one because it's practically into her armpit.

This cast seems to annoy her much more than the splint did. Twice already she has come up to dh or I and said "arm stuck, help" as she is trying to rip it off her arm.

Thanks for all the well wishes -- we will keep you posted.
