No cast yet.
We went to Nate's appointment with the Orthopedic P.A., T. Coats, who, as it turns out, is not only very funny but he is also the dad to one of my dad's students at the Christian High School. Small world.
Apparently Nate's arm is still too swollen to put on the full cast, so they partially casted him and gave him a MUCH better sling that not only holds his arm better, but it also relieves a lot of the neck aches he was getting from the old one. And the straps are comfy.
So the official update is that he will be re x-rayed on Tuesday and if all is well, they will fit him for his full cast. Whether or not Nate will let anyone sign it is another matter. :o)
Isn't he a cute gimpy?
Regarding HIS job: We were informed that he might be able to go back to light duty on Monday, AND, we were told that the company will pay him for lost work during the week and the workman's comp. insurance will pay for Saturday and Sunday. Thank God.
Regarding MY job: 24 hours and counting. I disassembled my desk and packed up the last of stuff to take home. Its weird, this place really does look like a graveyard now. Its rather sad and pathetic.
