This cast, it shall be the death of me. It's cracked now, right through Poppa's signature. The end near her elbow is squishy. The hospital says it's okay as it's still intact surrounding her break, but it's making me a tad paranoid. Everyone seems surprised when they see the size of it. That?! they say, That for just a broken thumb?! And Mike and I just nod our heads because what the heck do we know? We didn't go to upstairs medial college. Only four more days until we see the plastic surgeon I can't even imagine what he's going to have to say.
