CIT--Day Five

Today was a most excellent day because Ashley was allowed to have her cast removed and go for a swim!

So after two hours of therapy, it was off with the cast...

and into the water!

Ash spent most of her time in the pool with Peggy.

The girls had a great time with their casts off. Time to move and scratch and play and then it was time to hit the showers. Thankfully I'd brought shampoo and conditioner. All the girls in the group needed it and so I stood, fully clothed, in the shower with all the girls and squirted shampoo and conditioner for everyone.

Ayup. I came out looking like I'd taken a shower with my clothes on. Which is kinda sorta what I'd done.

Then it was time to have the cast put back on and wrapped in the color of their choice. Ashley chose green.

The problem was that there wasn't enough green to finish the arm. She was offered another color to make it a two-color job but she didn't think that was going to look very good. So upstairs we went in search of another color.

This time she picked purple. Notice how thrilled she looks.

Her pain was relieved by having lunch with Peggy down in the cafeteria. She enjoyed a burger and their famously delicious onion rings.

All in all, it was an incredible week.

Now it's on to the weekend.
