the saga continues

Friday, we went back for Carly's week check up. The orthopedist gave Carly's foot a good luck and decided she needed a cast. He was concerned that the boot was not giving her enough and said he really wanted to give her all the opportunity we could for it to heal. That was when he mentioned the word surgery and that was when I became a fan of the cast. So, to the next room we moved where Carly picked lime green. She got a little walking shoe to wear on the cast so she can walk around on it - no crutches. She hasn't slowed down except by the doctor's orders that she spends some time with it propped up. Last night she even managed to get it all muddy while trick-or-treating - if your going to break it in, might as well be while you're having fun being a kid!

Some of us who never broke a bone used to feel a bit of envy of those kids with casts they got to have signed.

Noticed I used past tense.

OUCH~
thank goodness she can walk on it for trick or treating purposes! I love the green- still it looks painful. I hope the cast helps & healing comes fast. Before you know it she'll be kicking goals at a spring soccer game.

Tell Carly that I am jealous. My doctor only has white cast material. Loser. LOL. I am so glad she gets to walk on it because being sequestered loses its appeal rather quickly.

Goodness! I'll be thinking of her and of you and Kenny!

I think it's amazing that she can walk around while wearing the cast. It seems like that should be painful.
