The cast is off.
Seth only had his cast for 4 weeks. It felt like longer. After the cast was cut off this morning, the first thing he said about his arm was, “It feels really smushed.” And you can tell his right arm is slightly smaller than his left. He touched things, saying everything feels different (one hand compared to the other).
He still favors the left hand and holds his right as if the cast is still on. He says he wants to keep writing with his left. And I tell him not to worry about it; just see what happens naturally.
I’m afraid he needs another bath or two before the old shoe smell goes away.
