It was one week ago on Monday at a playground in Middlebury, Vermont that Jack fell off the monkey bars and broke his wrist. Several doctors in Vermont recommended that Jack wear a temporary cast to stabilize his wrist until we returned back home to Maine to see a pediatric orthopedist. Yesterday afternoon Jack was fitted with a fiberglass cast, which he will wear for the next several weeks. Jack had a choice of cast colors and I was surprised when he chose green since red and blue are his favorite colors. After we left the orthopedist's office I asked Jack why he chose that color. His response was, "Mama, I chose it for you because green is your favorite color." So sweet! I admire Jack so much for his strength, courage and positive attitude throughout all of this. Jack has not expressed a single complaint about his broken wrist and he often tells me how much he is enjoying the challenge of learning how to do things with his left hand (he is right handed). What a boy!!!
Here is Jack waiting to get his new cast at the orthopedic office yesterday!
Here is Jack in Vermont the day after he broke his wrist...still smiling!
