Jessie and I went back to Akron Children's today for a checkup for her arm.

Her surgeon is thrilled with how well this bone is healing. Arm bones must heal quicker than leg bones. 6 weeks after the accident (today), she graduated to a short waterproof cast. We were out of there by 4:20, home by 5:15 and she was in the shower by 5:20 rinsing her arm.

If you look closely, you can see all the irritated skin where her eczema flared up under the cast - that has been washed with her soap and lotion put on - hopefully in a few days it will clear up and be good as new.

She will go back on the 17th to hopefully be done with casts, and then follow up visits at 6 months and 1 year to make sure it is all healed.

She says she picked orange to go with her witch's halloween costume for trick or treating tomorrow night:)

I am glad she is doing well, and hopefully you will ONLY be going back for checkups over the next year. :) Love the orange!

That's a great x-ray! It is crisp and really gross and an excellent reminder of broken arm fun!

Glad to hear she is on the mend. To funny she would want an orange cast. Way to plan ahead for Halloween.

So good your daughter is healing well. YEAH for her! And what a smart girl she is for planning so well. I'd want to color coordinate with my Halloween costume, too! :)

I love the orange cast! I'm glad she's healing well. It must be a bummer to wear a cast like that for so long! Kids...they scare the heck out of you!
