Broken Bone Update's been a week and a half since Luke fell off of the picnic table and broke his wrist.  We headed back to the orthopedic doctor and got his new, permanent cast.  I really wasn't expecting a plaster cast.  I can't even remember the last time I had seen a plaster cast.  I had tried to make a big deal about going to the doctor and getting a new cast and getting to pick out what color he would choose.  He had it all figured out; he was going to choose blue.  Unfortunately, Luke didn't get his blue cast.  Fortunately, a plaster cast is great for signing!

Luke did a super job at the doctor's office!

Thanks to a sweet, sweet couple in our church that really like Luke (whom Luke LOVES), he got to go to the dollar store and pick out two prizes for doing such a great job at the doctor!

Luke has done GREAT with the cast!  It certainly hasn't slowed him down and he rarely complains about it.  And by complain, I mean that he has asked a handful of times, "When can I take this off?" or "Can I take this off now."  I am very impressed with my little guy!  He is handling things much better than I would!

We go back to the doctor on June 14 to see how much longer Luke has to be in the cast.

How sweet! He looks so cute!! He doesn't seem to be too upset with the cast.
