The cast is gone...

After what seemed like forever, Kalli finally got her cast off yesterday. The doctor done the x-rays and really felt like her arm was healing good enough to have the cast removed. He mentioned how Kalli had such a high pain tolerance and that she was definitely "not a complainer" which of course made me proud! He removed the cast to something neither Kalli nor I was prepared to see - a icky looking wound. The Dermabound that was used to help glue the wound together had been put on while there was blood- so it dried looking like crusty blood the length of the scar. He said not to worry though because it would flake off in no time. She's not quite able to completely straighten it but she's working on it. We have a follow-up appointment in 3 weeks and at that time, he'll determine if she's gotten her full mobility back or if she'll need physical therapy. Our prayers our that it all comes back to her on it's own.
