It must have worked, because he was so brave! He sat right up on the table and let the nurse cut the cast right off. I was shocked! I fully expected him to flip out. After the cast came off, they took him for an x-ray to see if another cast needed to go back on for 2 more weeks. Thankfully, his arm was healed and the doctor said he did not need another cast! I wanted to do flips! I was thrilled!
The doctor did tell us that he needs to be careful for the next 2-4 weeks so he doesn't reinjure his arm.
We have his birthday party at a Bounce House scheduled for the end of the month, so I think he will be in the clear by then.
Here's my big brave man getting his cast off! (I think it's sideways)
