Broken: No longer whole

Adella had Zack chasing after her because she had snatched his tie.  Zack fell, and Zane, who saw it, said he smacked his head.  Later that evening we noticed Zack wasn't able to grab something we had given him.  At first I was worried something got jumbled in his head.  Then he started to complain about his hand hurting.  It wasn't until the weekend was over that we got him into the doctor who called for an x-ray.  But the doctor wasn't even sure his arm was broken because the little man never winced when he was inspected.  Ten minutes after the x-ray, the doctor called and said Zack had a buckle break in both the bones in his arm.  Poor boy!  We kept him wrapped up until the swelling was down and got him a 'green' cast, which was actually glow in the dark.  This cast lasted half a day because Zack swung his arm as a sunbeam, and it flew across the room.  His second cast was blue and went past his elbow.  We have more pictures of the first cast, but they are all on our phones.  I will have to get them off and add them later.

The Wrap

The Blue Cast

The Blue Cast the day it was removed - it has duct tape because it was giving him sores.
