When we were called back they took off Logan's temporary cast and his arm looked pretty normal. They wrapped it in Gore-Procel (aka Gore-Tex) which is the same stuff they use for waterproof fabrics. He is required to get it wet everyday. How nice is that?! Boy has technology changed. Getting it wet will keep it from itching and smelling and it gets all the dead skin out. He also got the normal mesh overlay and he picked red for his color. After they wrapped him they had to set the bone. That hurt. I felt so bad for him. They literally squeezed the arm until it was set in place again. There was no distracting him from that pain unfortunately. They took xrays again after they were done and it looked good so they gave us our instructions and we were out the door. We were starving and my friend Jen told me he needed a treat so we stopped by McD's on the way home for a late lunch. So far he's been fine with the arm. It doesn't hurt him at all he says.
Unfortunately he's not feeling well now. I don't know if the cold that's going around the house finally caught up to him or it was just all the stress of the past 2 days but he actually fell asleep at 7pm and didn't eat dinner (pizza) or a cupcake. I know the boy is sick if he doesn't eat! Dh put him in bed and we'll see how he is in the morning. He just can't catch a break I guess. Keep him in your thoughts!
**Update: He's def. sick. He got up twice to throw up and was running a fever. My poor baby!!
We were all the way down by St Joes but you could see the roller coasters at Busch Gardens from the window.
The Gore-Tex going on.
The painful part.
