    Do they still use plaster casts that people can sign? I thought nowadays they used some sort of fiber material.

    I think they specifically put a signable outer layer on it. That, or marker technology has just advanced enough to keep up with it.

    I don’t know about luck. Have you ever smelled a cast after 12 weeks?

    You’d think by now Frazz and Miss Plainwell would have gone to see if Mrs. Olsen and/or Gabriella are OK instead of trading quips.

    That should just get Mrs. Olsen through summer vacation.

    It’s ok, Mrs. O. I’ll come over and do your gardening for you. As soon as I can find my cane.

    I’ve never had a cast. So glad for that. I had a friend that was klutz enough for us both. ;)

    Two weeks? When I broke my wrist as a child, I had mine for 6 weeks. Then when I broke it in my 30’s, it was still 6 weeks. I can’t even imagine the stench of 12 weeks. Poor Mrs. Olsen.
    .
    BTW they still use a plaster wrap that they wet down and wrap the gauze with. You just now have many color choices to choose from. Mine was purple. :-)

    As I recall my cast (I’ll date myself by admitting it was plain white plaster) was on for 5 weeks. It was on my right arm and, dumb me, I just switched to using the left hand for my school work. To this day I kick myself for not realizing I could get out of stuff – at least, not realizing until I saw the reaction from my teacher. Well, at least it let me discover I’m ambidexterous.

    I agree. No bone heals in 2 weeks. When my wrist got broken, I was six weeks in a cast. Same for my daughter when she broke hers. That’s when I realized when part of my hand was stuck in a cast, it smelled like my feet. Same sweat glands I guess. But also there was the six weeks worth of shedded skin cells waiting to be removed.

    My recent cast was some kind of wet layered material that dried around the affected area. Then they put a colored layer over it. When it was time to come off they had a special saw that cut right through it but didn’t cut the skin.
