Duckie has been a real trooper with her broken wrist this summer and has done her best not complain. She is finally healed up and got her cast off yesterday. She had tears in her eyes after the cast was cut off so the doctor asked her if something was wrong. She said "No, I've just been waiting six weeks to wash my hands and now I see how disgusting my arm looks". The Dr chuckled and told her the dead skin would come off within a few days with soaking and gentle washing. Not good enough for the Duck! She asked me to stop at a drug store across the street to get a gentle exfoliating cloth, some gentle lotion and some bronzer lotion. She then had me slather her up in the car and gently remove most of the skin right there in the car. Why couldn't she wait? We were going to lunch with husband and she didn't to be forced to see how "gross" it was while she was eating.
