Tom needed ankle surgery to repair a few broken parts. This is what his cast looked like.
Nothing but John Deere. A true green and yellow fan. (Riley was showing his "owie" too in this photo. It had actually healed up by this time but he had cut his toe open on a piece of steel. A little Miracle Salve and keeping it clean was all he needed. You can find miracle salve here. Can't say enough about this great stuff.)
Tom needed a second cast and this time the doctors and nurses were happy to oblige his taste again. They all took pictures themselves of the John Deere cast and then let him take it home as a souvenir.
