The Tale of a Broken Arm - Part 2
There once was a little boy who removed his own cast and almost gave his poor mommy a heart attack! She was not wanting to go back to the doctor or "icky" waiting room, so she tried to put the cast back on the boy. She soon realized that while "what goes up, must come down" doesn't necessarily mean "what slides out, must slide back in."
The poor mommy spent lots of time calling hospitals and trying to talk to doctors. One hospital kept sending her to a voice messaging system that did not work.
The mommy finally found someone who promised to call her back! When the lady did, she told the mommy that she had to bring the little boy back to the hospital.
This time to waiting room was empty, so the mommy was thrilled!
The little boy was given another cast and more x-rays. The mommy was happy to find out personally removing casts has happened at other times in this far, far away land, for Gene Davis had her worried! She was beginning to think that she had Houdini for a son.
This time the family only spent 2 1/2 hours at the hospital, and the mommy was happy to discover they would put a cast on the boy that could stay on until the 28th. (She was afraid they would have to go back to the doctor the next day and get a different cast, for that is what they told her in the beginning.)
The mommy now hopes there will be no more broken bones or removed casts (The daddy and mommy had a talk with the boy that should prevent such actions.), and the family will live happily ever after!

How much hand sanitizer did you use in those 2.5 hours? :) I guess we shouldn't be surprised that a lively little boy could find a way out of a cast!

Ethan is just testing the strength of your heart muscle! Maybe he was tired of orange and wanted a different color. He must have a high threshold for pain, because I can't imagine what it would feel like to remove your own cast in one piece! Just remember you're "making memories"!
