Today my son #1 got his cast off. He 'broke' his wrist about 2 1/2 weeks ago playing basketball at a friend's house. I say 'broke' because the first doctor said he broke it for sure, but the orthopedic specialist said it was just strained ligaments. So, they put the cast on to make him feel better and to let the wrist rest for a couple of weeks. My son plays the trombone so he has been unable to do that and has been out of PE for two weeks as well. He came home today with a splint that he says bothers him more than having the wrist free. Now he can shower and play video games freely again!
We treated ourselves to Cold Stone ice cream. After all, it was a traumatic experience for mom too you know!
