Today Evelyn got her cast taken off her broken (well, not really broken anymore) arm! She still has to wear a splint for a couple of weeks and go to a few physical therapy sessions, but no big bulky cast anymore. Ev is really happy about that. She hasn't been in any pain since right after it happened, but having a cast on her arm made it harder to play.
Because of the severity of the break, the doctors thought she would need to be in a cast for a few more weeks beyond this. When she went in for her routine x-rays to check her progress, though, it was a lot better than they thought it would be. Like, so much better that they did another set of films to make sure it wasn't a mistake. No mistake, though. Her arm just healed really fast.
We're very happy for her! I'm going to bake her some cookies to celebrate. Yay for a swift recovery!
