Ouch! Part Deux

I met with the orthopedic surgeon this morning regarding my broken wrist and the good news is I only need a cast, not surgery. What I found interesting was they asked me "what color cast would you like". I was offered a number of options such as black, yellow, purple, glow-in-the-dark (I was afraid that one would keep me up at night), etc. The nurse, who had been doing this for some time, surprised me by saying she had never done a white one. So, in the interest of furthering medical science, that's the one I chose...

My park neighbors have already expressed an interest in signing the cast but knowing their mischievous nature (that's the polite description), I am reluctant to let that happen.

Lastly, no one likes to go to the hospital but I found the doctors and nurses at the Moab Valley Healthcare complex to be some of the nicest professionals I have ever dealt with.

Beautiful photos, except this one :(
Hope you have a speedy recovery!

Given my "active lifestyle", I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later. Could have been worse. Thanks for the nice comment.
