I think that Rick and I have spent more time the last 3 days driving and in hospitals than we’ve actually been home.

And the middle of July is the PERFECT time to get a cast on your arm when the temperatures are in the 90s and the humidity is beyond belief.

And as soon as you get the cast on you develop an itch juuust where you can’t reach it with any devise known to man.

The surgery went well on Tuesday to set his wrist and adorn it with a beautiful black cast, one that goes almost up to his armpit.

The decision was made that he could forgo the pins and plate and go with the pull-it-out-slap-in-into-place method that the Doctor thinks will work just dandy.

And as long as everything looks good next Wednesday when he goes back down for more pictures to make sure it’s behaving itself, he’ll get to swap out this cast for a shorter one in 4 weeks.  That one will be on for another 4 to 6 weeks.

Thank you to all the well-wishers out there that have been rooting for his quick recovery, and those that have offered to help us finish up the studio.

We love you all!

  1. Lookin good Dad! Hope it all heals well. Love you!

  2. Hope Rick feels better soon. Sure do miss you guys. <3

  3. You did a really good job on that arm, Rick. That’ll learn ya. But probably not! Casts are pretty awful at the best of times, but the middle of the summer isn’t the best time for one. At least it’s black and won’t show the dirt. Who ever thought white was a good color anyway?

    Take care. You, too, Sandy.

  4. Missing you too Nikki!

  5. I think he should have gone with pink.

  6. Hmmm…..I think I look like Sterling Larson in this picture, no offense Sterling!

  7. Love you, Dad! Hope you’re feeling better soon!

  8. Hi Rick, This is the first that I have heard of this. From the comments above it sounds like you had an accident while doing some remodeling. Bummer! We should be getting a break from this heat and humidity soon so that should help! Take Care, Uncle Dan

  9. Thanks Dan!

  10. Rick I’m sorry to hear about your fall. Your fall sounds very much like Amos’ a year and a half ago. He also had it fixed in Rice Lake with very good success. hope you will get better quick. He fell from a step ladder. Take care.

  11. Thanks Mabel!
