 The Saw


I will always remember the time when I got my cast off.  I had broken my leg on September 10th.  I wore the cast for about 6 weeks.  It all started when I was going to the hospital.  I had to sit in the waiting room for a couple of minutes until the doctor called me in.  I had to sit on the bed while they got this mini saw.  They said that it wouldn't cut my skin.  They even put the saw on their own hand for proof!  Then they began to saw the cast.  The saw touched me a couple of times, but all it did was burn just a little bit.  First, they sawed both sides of the cast.  Then they got this tool to pry open the cast.  I was a little scared because the doctor said the tool might pinch me.  Finally, when they got the cast open, I looked at my leg.  It was as small as my pinky!   My muscles no strength after being in the cast so long.  Then they took me into the x-ray room to make sure that nothing happened to my leg while it was in the cast.  After that, they said my leg was all ready to go and that I will be back walking and running in no time.  At first it was strange because it felt like I was still in the cast.  A few weeks later I am feeling totally back to normal.  I hope that if you every get a broken leg, you won't be afraid of the saw.

Great writing, Gavin. Too bad it was a broken leg that you had to write about. I hope some great things happen for you from now on so you can write about them!
