Freedom!

I can't believe how quickly 3 weeks have passed.


I think she was a little nervous at first about how they were going to get the cast off.

Can you believe part-way thru her saw broke and she had to hunt down another one?


We have all been joking the past few days, wondering what her arm would look like once it was revealed. Would it be wrinkly? Would it be smaller than the other one? Would her hair have fallen off? She just giggled. No wrinkles. But crazy, arm hair sticking up all over!


Once the cast was off they did another x-ray. There was no visible trace of a break anymore! That is just amazing to me how in just a few weeks a bone can grow new bone and fix itself.

Sara was excited to have the cast off. She was getting tired of talking to so many people about it. It was quite stiff at first and it hurt. I think she was afraid of using it, too. But as the day went on, she relaxed.


3 more weeks of limited activity--no running, no bike riding, no trampoline, no playground craziness. Then another doctor visit and we should be released. That's going to be a long 3 weeks with sunshiny days on the horizon!

She ended the day with a refreshing shower, instead of a bath with a plastic bag up to her armpit.
