That abominable cast is finally off! 24 days of that thing as a constant reminder that my son is hurt--is now gone. But, the reminder isn't...not really.
We went back to the orthopedist today and Thomas didn't even make a peep when they turned the saw on and cut that blue monstrosity off.
I was sure he would freak out, but he only covered his ears and watched intently. I would have snapped a picture of her removing it, but mommy had her hands over his ears too, and his was digging deep in to my body.
But, I got some great "after shots."
X-rays showed that his fracture is all healed, but the doctor tell me he will limp for *at least* 2 weeks.Of course he isn't limping now, he won't walk on it all, and mommy has resumed carrying his hefty behind where ever I go.
I couldn't be more happy this whole ordeal is behind us, and I think the rest of the family is too! It has been a long 3 weeks, and we have more time of healing ahead of us. What a story he will have to tell...
Wanna hear it? ;)
