More one my hand…

Last week Tuesday I headed back to the hospital for what I was told would be a new fiberglass light weight cast. I get there, am sent straight to the cast room without seeing the doctor and the lady there wants to cut off my old cast without even looking at my file. I asked her what the hell she was doing because I was pretty sure that my broken hand was not set in 8 days and I was not planning on going thru the 4-doctor procedure of resetting my hand because she cuts my cast off without thinking…

After stopping to look at my file and calling up a few x-rays on the computer she thought it would be a better idea to leave the cast as it was. Doh! I guess to make it look like my trip to the hospital was not for nothing, which basically it was, they removed the top layer (pink) and gave me a new purple one. I was then told it would all be removed at the end of the month (only in cast for 3 1/2 weeks by then).
