This better be the end of this chapter in my life… the tale of my son- broken-arm-boy, who spent the better part of 3 months in various casts after snapping both bones in his left arm in July.
Early July: First cast, over 2 pins. Loads of art with Sharpie paint pens, way more fun to look at than just the names and well wishes of friends and family.
Middle of August: Pin sites healed, waterproof cast put on for a few mores weeks of summer fun. What makes the cast waterproof is what the arm is wrapped with underneath the fiberglass. Apparently, it’s extremely itchy and you have to get it wet (flush water through) every day or else it will do bad things to the skin.
Who was listening when the doctor said to be extremely careful for the next 6 months so you don’t rebreak your arm?? Not I. Back in a cast in November after forgetting to wear his brace at the skate park- 4 weeks, luckily different spot.
