 The very nice doctor at the urgent care Saturday evening, suggested we go to OrthoCarolina Urgent care on Sunday morning for the cast.  They are open from 10-2.
 We were there right at 10 and he was the first patient.  No waiting or anything.  Everyone was super nice and joked around with S and made him comfortable.
 The doctor was quite impressed with the splint, but not at all impressed with the x-rays. So we had four new ones taken.  The removal of the splint allowed me to change his shirt so we didn't have to cut the other one.  It is one of his favorites.
 After they all made sure he didn't want pink, they gave him a red one.  The doctor told him the red ones turn pink after a few days, but he wasn't falling for that.
Because the break is up a ways from the wrist, the cast had to go above his elbow so he can't twist his arm around during the healing.  We go back next Monday to see how everything is coming along.

Wow! Can't believe he made it just fine skiing and then broke it skating. Crazy! At least he looks like he's in good spirits!

Yeah I think we snow ski more than we skate, lol. But if you think about it falling on snow vs. falling on a hard wood floor with wheels on your shoes....skating is more dangerous.
