When Seth got his cast off a week ago, Ryan was toiling away at his day-job. Thanks to Mr. Iphone, we sent him play by play pictures of the deed. Here, for posterity, is a photo journal of the process. (Watch out for the one with the HUGE pins coming out of his arm…) We’ll tell it from Seth’s point of view:
Yay! I’m getting my cast off:
Oh, ha ha! This kind of tickles and this nurse is awesome with kids my age:
Um…I’m starting to get slightly nervous as the nurse applies pressure on my weak, little arm in order to unstick the cast and gauze:
Ew. This sickly little pasty thing doesn’t look ready to function in my rough and tumble world!
I’m really, really nervous about moving this thing at all. Can’t you guys see these huge piece of metal sticking out of my elbow!?
After insisting that they wrap it and whimpering all the way to X-ray, this lemon lollipop is making me feel alot better.
He’s going to WHAT?! Just yank the things out, in broad daylight, with no pain killers?! I’m glad the nurses were amazingly sweet and comforting.
They said it didn’t hurt, but I’m crying pretty hard. Can I have another lemon lollipop?
After recovering for a few minutes, I think I’m able to totter out of the office. I’m going to hang on to this thing pretty consistently for the rest of the day, I think. Hey! Why does Faith get a lollipop? I didn’t see her getting stuff pulled out of HER arm!
Arm, what arm?! Pins, what pins?! I’m just happy to be swimming the very next day!
