I left the house at 0900 and headed for the docs.
I got the scooter out of my car
scooted across the parking lot
I was in the waiting room for 2.5 hours
then they put me in the cast room
one more hours passes
then a nurse comes in and starts cutting off my cast
MIKE-- ommm whats going on
NURSE "doc said to cut your cast off, so we can x-ray it"
the doc comes in (he is awesome) some small talk bla bla bla ... then he starts poking around at the fracture sight.
DOCTOR -" this is the bone right?'
DOCTOR - "that doesn't hurt?"
MIKE - well its tender
DOCTOR- thats great! lets get the x-ray
another hour passes
x--ray - led guard over balls
back in the cast room
DOCTOR (looking at the X-RAY) - it looks great!
So now its time to work
