Brinley got her cast off today. It was quite an adventure. She is my little timid girl that is afraid of everything and worries about everything. She was so happy going in there and we prepared her that she might not get it off. It had been on 4 weeks and they wanted to re-xray it to see how it had healed. When we were waiting there she was asking all kind of questions on how they were going to get it off. Nate told her that they tied a rope around her cast and they tied the other end to the car and drove really fast and hopefully just the cast would come off without any of her fingers. (You would think with as much as he teases her she would get used to it but...nope!) We told her that they sawed it off and her eyes got really big. I tried to explain to her that the sound might be a little scary, but it was not going to hurt a bit. I thought that I had prepared her really well with what was next. No Way! She was okay until they got the saw close to her and they she freaked. I don't know who was crying louder though...Halle or Brinley. Halle was so upset that they were going to cut off her arm. It was quite a scene and everyone asked if she was okay when we came out. She really cried and I thought she was just being a little dramatic about it, but when they got the cast off, she really did get a few cuts from the saw.
Cutting her cast off!
She was so happy to have it off!
After they cut it off, they x-rayed it. The doctor said it wasn't quite healed and I think that he would of put another one on her, but he couldn't stand the look on her face when she heard it wasn't all the way healed. She was so happy when he told her to just stay off her bike and the trampoline for a few more weeks. She could handle that. So instead of any of that we went swimming. She has been asking since she got out of school if we could go and I didn't want to take her and have mold grow inside of her cast. So here are my girls at their first swim of the summer....
