Tyler was definitely ready to part with his cast. And man, did he put that cast through the ringer. It was only a soft cast so it was getting very dirty and started to unravel in a few places. I really didn't think it would make it to the 5 week mark. But it did.
He was a trooper when they removed the cast. Since it was a soft cast, they just snipped it off with scissors and then they removed the 2 pins that were in his thumb. I squirmed and made more of a big deal when he removed the pins than Tyler did. He didn't even flinch.
We have grown accustomed to his thumbs being inside his palm his entire life that it's crazy to see his thumbs out. He now has a splint that he will have to wear most of the day and night for 2 weeks.
A much cleaner view.
