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 4

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.

Looks good, Evan. I like the black. Did you get the cast cover, Lisa? Hope it all works out and the cast is off before you know it. :)

I have one in a cast right now too. I tell him it is not an excuse not to load the dishwasher, he has another hand. We're in for 6 weeks.

Lisa, I love that you blogged this! And photographed it too.

Walid seemed a right good subject to photograph along with Evan and Grandma!

Hope all heals well !!

Okay, this made Blossom feel better about her own visit to the hospital. Evan is one brave guy! (And we saw the map of Maine!) Congratulations on your chic black cast, Evan...

Hey, a cast is no excuse for getting out of work. The guy who won Hell's Kitchen this season had one and he could do it all and more. ;)
