A new man

Scotty got his cast off yesterday! He is still a little apprehensive about using it, but the first thing he did yesterday, without my knowledge, was to play in the water outside. I guess 3 weeks without splashing around was too long of a wait for him.

Also, last Wednesday was Scotty's first day of preschool. He loves to play in the sand (much easier to do without the cast) and paint. I don't know who loves it better, him or me. This is the first time in a looooong time that I have had a clean kitchen for longer than about 3 hours.

If you want to witness the "brutal" cast removal here you go. Unfortunately, his nurse didn't believe him when he said "Ow" - then she once even tried to just pull it off. What?!? His cast apparently got water in it at some point and it became like a second skin - yummy. He still has little tiny mesh marks on his arm.

Lookin' Good Scotty!

(empathy pain here, for the second skin fact. eeeouch!)

I am the Teachers Assistant in Tommy's class. Did he tell you?
SO fun.
What a kid you have

K-That saw FREAKED me out! He was so composed and calm, I could hardly stand to watch it.

I can't believe how much Scotty is looking like Mikey

I especially liked it at about the 1:13 spot in the clip, where the nurse tells Scotty to "turn it over", while attempting to twist and contort his arm in a way that no human arm should ever be twisted.

I've never broken a bone and can't imagine how annoying a case must be. It must feel so good to get it taken off!

I bet that is wonderful to have that off! He was very good while the nurse took it off!
