Cast Off Day!!

Today was the long awaited day for cast removal. Noah was very patient as Mike buzzed the saw and used an opening tool to get that stinky thing off. Then came the unwrapping of the hand. The peeling skin was totally gross and Noah scratched at it all the way home. After a bath, some lotion and a benedryl/codeine mixture, the itching has subsided and he is moving the hand. What a joy to see a real thumb and pinky!

Congratulations on the removal of the famous cast!!! Thanks for all the detailed pictures. My oldest daughter and I have been pouring over them in preparation for Josie's upcoming procedure. Keep us posted on Noah's continued healing.

Blessings.

Wonderful news! I had a cast on my leg once and it was nasty too when they took it off.
But I'm so happy for little Noah!
