Meet the cast

Casting 2

Yesterday was casting day. Off we went to the Orthopedic Doc.

Casting 1

I tell ya, that place runs like a well oiled machine.

We went into what looked like a little emergency room set-up.

Six or so cots with curtains in between.

Within minutes someone comes over and asks him what happened.

He tells the "fell off my bike story".

A minute later he's in x-ray and a few minutes later he's back.

Doc sees him.

Yup arms broken.

Gonna need a cast (we knew that).

We met Walid, a very nice gentlemen who is going to cast Evan.

Casting 5

That's Grandma back there smiling at Evan.

Casting 6

Walid did a great job. Evan chose black as you can see.

We told him, no one will be able to write on your cast.

"I don't want anyone to write on it" Evan said.

Well ok then.

Casting 8

Casting 7

The casting took no time at all.
I think Walid's done this a time or two or a hundred!

Casting 9

After a trim we were ready to go.
Total time at the docs: 1 hour.
Pretty impressive.

We go back in 2 weeks for a check.
The doctor thinks the cast will be on for a month.

Evan seemed ok with it.
After all, it's the perfect excuse not to be able to....fold your blanket,
make your bed, clear your plate, etc.
