This cast thing…. I hate it. My sweet daughter is handling it much better than I ever would have expected. She’s staying mostly happy. For now.She’s only complained a handful of times about it being hot, heavy, itchy, or how it keeps her from doing things with her favored hand. She is lamenting about missing field trips to the water park or not being able to chill out in our inflatable pool. She misses playing in the rain. Whoever designed non-waterproof casts for children was surely a demon.
I’m trying to be proactive. I’ve ordered some Shrinky Dinks and other assorted craft kits to make staying indoors a bit more palatable. I may take her to get a pedicure tomorrow. Felix is going to be my problem. He’s not hurt. He wants to go outside.
We have a CT scan on Tuesday. Maybe – just maybe – we can get out of this thing sooner. Cross your fingers and toes and whatever else you have for us. Oh, and feel free to send any indoor activity suggestions for a wounded kid.
