I read that about the itching on the sheet they give you, glad to know it works!Thanks for the update! Been there, done that last year, with my elbow. If your arm gets itchy under the cast, put your hair dryer on the coldest setting to blow cold air down the cast. It helps, and doesn't do any damage to your skin.
The pink cast was probably a (more expensive) waterproof one. When my son was younger, way back then, I had to specially order one so he could swim when away on a school camp. You could customize your cream cast with felt pens. Go crazy on the art work, and be sure to show us. Could you check if the hospital had a patient transport system you may be able to use?
The new cast is better. The other was plaster and only about 3/4 of a cast so when some swelling went down it shifted was putting pressure on wrong spots. This one much more comfortable.
So was thinking about the art...and wishing I had paw print stamper...that would be the best cast cover decor...lol
Great tip about transport...I had thought of, but left too long, plus I feel more comfortable in my own van. No sick people...I would kill not to be the driver for once!...I drove today, I will be way better by next time.
