Sarah is doing surprisingly well with her cast!
I really thought it was going to be much more of a struggle for her without the use of her right arm, but she has taken it all in stride and has quickly adapted to using her left hand. Getting dressed is probably the most difficult, it is a little tricky getting clothes over that arm, but we have managed. Good thing it is summer and not winter.

She has received some extra attention and spoiling since that cast went on her arm, so of course she is eating that up as well.
If you look closely at her feet, you will see she was treated to her very first pedicure complete with hand painted fancy flowers:)

We returned to the Pediatric Orthopedist last week and he gave us some wonderful news.
The bones are healing nicely and nothing has shifted out of place.
Next Thursday we will be going back to see them and they are gong to remove the large cast and replace it with a smaller one that is below the elbow. That means she will gain some mobility back in her arm and the cast will be so much less cumbersome.
The timing could not be more perfect as we will be leaving for the beach just two days later:)
We also found out that she will be "cast free" before the start of school.

We "blinged" out her cast the day after it was put on and she has collected quite a few signatures from family and friends!
Sarah is very proud of that cast and a little excited that we get to "start over" with a new one next week.
There will be plenty of space for our family on the Cape to sign it.... we have already packed the sharpies and I guess I better purchase some more "blingles" to give it that "Sarah style".

I am posting a little bit early this week, so if you are ready to link up for Favorite Photo Friday, feel free!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.... 9 days and counting until our family hits the beach!
I am just a "little" excited:)

Sarah you make wearing a cast fashionable!! I rmbr after my nephew broke his arm and they removed the cast, he had a tendency to hold it like it was still in a cast! After a few days he was back to the "norm" of letting it straighten out normally. Kids are so resilient, they bounce back without fail!!! Wishing a continued healing to Sarah! Girl...seriously...you wear that cast well!!

I had a hot pink cast a few years ago. It looks much cuter on her than a forty something year old woman! Sweet photos!

Aww, delighted all is going well, or as well as can be expected!
Reagan in the first one looks wistful, as though wishing for one of her own.
