Val opted for the hot pink arm cast:
As you can see, she's already collected several signatures from her friends. :-) She even got a few unexpected get well gifts and cards to brighten her day.
GOOD news!! The hard cast is only for TWO weeks!! After that, it will be a removable device so she can swim and shower. YAY!! And EVEN better, the doctor has surgeries all day on July 3, BUT they said to be on standby.... and if he has a break in between they will call me to go in and will CUT OFF THE CAST! Why is that a big deal? We always have a big 4th of July bash.... no cast will mean Val can swim at the party. I sure hope they call to fit her in. Having a cast at the upcoming party is one of the things that has been bothering her.
