A Real Cast

The Youngest Island Boy is finally in a real cast.

They've kept him in a splint until now because of the pin in his arm but apparently at this point it's now ok to move into a cast.

And it's waterproof!

They wrapped his arm in gortex before they put the cast on and the gortex will dry, even under the fiberglass cast.

I can even hose it out when we come home from the beach to get any sand out.

Very cool.

Of course the day he got the cast put on we took him to the woods instead of the beach, which didn't make him happy.

He went swimming in the neighbor's pool yesterday and the inside of his cast was dry in about half an hour.

Ain't modern technology grand?
