Cast Off ... Cast On!

Yesterday Calob had a tiny bit of relief. He got his long cast off ... yay ... only to get his short cast on. It was odd to see his arm w/o the cast ... it looks smaller - scrawny even. We asked the doctor if he could please wash his hand/arm once the cast came off & he obliged. Thank goodness. It's almost like Calob's skin is stained though ... weird. I can only imagine if he'd had the cast during the summer in Hawaii. Funky tanline for sure! Here are the pictures.

Bottom left ... right when the cast came off ... relief!
Bottom right ... soaping it up!
Calob had a choice of colors again & he was definitely leaning towards blue again. I swear, I did NOT force him ... the choice was his. He did good though ... real good. Check out the color of his new, short cast!!! GREEN IS KEEN!!! Oh yeah, don't you just love the shirt?!?! Perfect for Calob (and yes, he picked that shirt out himself in Hawaii)!
The only bad news (if you can call it that) coming out of the appointment is that Calob has to wear the short cast for 3 weeks. We were initially told 2 weeks but the doctor decided on 3. Calob's arm is pretty sore. His elbow hadn't moved in 3 weeks & he definitely will have to work on getting it moving & flexible again.

When Jerrie & I were in Seattle I bought Callie this matching earring & ring set. It's fantastic! She was pretty happy to get to wear something "pretty scary" (get it? pretty & scary) ... lol!!!

She thought she needed a picture with Kit. ☺

Hey Calob, what a cool cast! Sorry you have to wear it for 3 weeks, but it will be good for your wrist to heal.

Pretty pictures of Callie and Kit, and Callie's scary jewelry!

Cool green cast! Something new for his friends to graffiti!

I think Callie is pretty, but not scary! Love that she is all blinged out. And...that is an awesome jacket!

I think that you sat on Calob and threatened to break his other arm unless he picked green!

Love Callie's Bling!
