Ha, you would think that this would be a post on our life, on the virtues of the Bible . . . um, nOPE after 100 miles round trip this is our newest attire.
- just in time for the 4TH of July (praying we last that long!)
Can you see the bottom of his first cast! You know it's bad when one of the ortho's asks
"Did someone saw the bottom off?"
Yeah , NO that's MY wild kid LOL!
The concern is he has pins coming out of the bottom of his leg, so once he wore through the cast all we had was some cotton between the pins and his wildness.
Oh and the duct tape which lasted all of 2.3 seconds LOL!
Heehee telling yet another child that "A Shark ate my leg" HEHEHE
SO, I am not sure I mentioned that Cav took all of his bandages off his short leg less than 1 week after surgery. Yep, Chris was making breakfast and wild man handed him all of the bandages. LOL I am so surprised this man of mine didn't hit the floor!
Anyhow, we went to the prothetist yesterday and he have is a shrinker to wear on that leg. Ok, Cav with basically a tight fitting WHITE sock for 6 weeks - I think NOT!
Our Dr's are awesome and determined this was not a great idea, and although his site looks FANTASTIC we didn't want him opening it up.
SOOO, we are trying a cast on his short side. He has a little bit of a bulb on the very end so we are hoping it will stay on - atleast for a bit!
GOtta be my most favorite picture of all!
AND this one!
NOT amused by the cast cutter, we expected it. iPhone to the rescue.
Even the others were freaked out!
Ok, I am a nurse but I have to say, the incision on this side was NASTY! I couldn't even take a picture of the black, yellow and red mess. The other side looks so fabulous I was really surprised. I guess we really are jsut going for function here.
Ok, back to the casting. The fabric looking stuff on the bottom is another shrinker, and then they really padded this cuz because he has a knee to keep it on!
Really, I just never thought that this would be my life!
And the result - casting a SHOE on the bottom of his cast. YEAH not thinking this is going to work but we will see. The Dr jsut kept telling the cast tech - make it heavy, make it thick we jsut need to SLOW THIS KID DOWN LOL!
Um, so far we have realized that the back has a hook on it which I immediately caught on the table! AND we no longer fit in a shopping cart at TARGET.
cuz, everyone was so traumatized by this unexpected adventure of ours we had to get some little treats!!
