Redneck Cast Removal!!

It was past time for Amanda's cast to come off and she was ready. She was going to have to make a trip to Corinth for this. Chase went to her house and they attempted to cut it off but all they did was mangle it some. Robert said he could get it off but she would have to be sure and get permission from her parents. He thought he could do it with a pair of Cutco Scissors we had but part of the cast was too thick. So he sent Chase and Amanda to Lowes for a Hacksaw, which they could not find and they come back with a dry wall saw. It worked like a charm. We had a yard stick that was metal and I suggested they slide it inside the cast to protect her arm from the saw. I really did not want to call her Mom and tell her we were on the way to the ER to get stitches. It went very well with Kelly assisting. After we got it off she said it was still a little sore and stiff. We wrapped an ACE bandage around it to keep her from moving it!! That sounds strange we just took a Cast Off!! The doc told her a week ago it was healing nicely. It will probably be sore and weak for a while. Amanda did very well and did not faint. She is a really sweet girl and we look forward to seeing her.
