We've hopefully got 1 week 1 day to go with- this darn thing. Diva has been simply *amazing* with it. A real trooper and really no complaints from her, which is just shocking! It's started itching the last couple days, but so far, she's only at minimal griping level about it. She has said that her knee doesn't hurt, where it used to hurt/ache 24/7, so hopefully that means the surgery was successful. Anyhoo... we've devised a decent bathing ritual for her and that's going well. Cast has stayed dry as a bone - absolutely, positively, no doubt whatsoever. But... we're getting her cleaned up tonight and ... there's this smell again. I've only noticed it the last couple of days, thought maybe she wasn't cleaning thoroughly. I didn't want to hurt her feelings, but I finally asked her tonight, and right as the words came out of my mouth, the light bulb went off. It's her cast. And oh.my.word. It stinks. Anything to be done for it? I'm mostly afraid the kids at school will start noticing it (it's kinda hard *not* to notice). I know we can't spray perfume down the thing, LOL, tempting as it is. Duct tape? Plastic bags? Febreze (ok, not really, but again very tempting)? Baking soda? I know we're in the final stretch, but I'm afraid we're going to need clothes pins on our noses by next Thursday. I've already got bubble bath for her to soak in the second we get home from getting the thing taken off.
