Cast Away

The bright pink cast is no more. I don't think she misses it one bit.


Man, did it stink! Her arm was all flaky and pale, bless her heart. We washed her up, put on some lotion and she felt much better.

Let's hope it's a looooong time before we have to do this again.

Do you have a pair of exfoliating gloves? Using those with some gentle soap will help get rid of the flaky stuff. I broke both ankles as a child and spent a total of five months in casts.
Glad she's all healed up!

Did she want to keep the cast?

Glad she's out of the cast. I broke my leg some 40+ years ago when they had the heavy plaster casts and I tried to keep them but Whew! they stunk bad! Also, had a forest growing on my leg. LOL!

Aw, there's nothing like the feeling of a fresh arm. :)

When my wife cut a tendon in her arm (from an exploding glass door), she had to have a cast on for a LONG time until the tendon healed.

When they took the cast off, her arm looked like a SHRUNKEN arm. It was so bizarre.

Way to go Maddy. Glad she's got a free arm now!

I can just feel the itch.
At least it wasn't summer. Yuck!
So glad she's healed.
