**It is currently 13th Obsidian, 13.**

I'm aware of the dating bug, but haven't heard of it applying to the month or year. But even if it does (i.e. Udib was actually placed in traction on 16th Sandstone, 13), then he's been in traction for 4 months with (as far as I can tell) just a slightly banged-up foot (not even any broken bones). If not, then it's been over a year (yeah, I could definitely lose track of a dwarf for that long... sigh). Surely if there were a reason for this extended stay, he would at least have been evaluated again in the mean time?
Injure a dwarf twice in the same extremity and get unlucky... ? Or maybe there's something preventing casts from being removed? There is no cast in his inventory, though.
Udib heals at an average rate (no mention of the stat in his "thoughts and preferences"). There doesn't seem to ever have been anything wrong with his legs or upper arms, so I'm not really sure why traction was necessary in the first place. I assume the fact that he's currently waiting for someone to bring water isn't really important, as that would have happened a few times already in the past few months.
No tags attached.

There is no cast, but he does still have sutures on his right foot.
