The Cast is OFF!

This is how Kyle has looked during his ordeal with his broken leg.

He adapted so well, he could pull himself around and even walk holding on to furniture. He adjusted to sleeping on his back, and to having to sit or be held outside...This was his new life. WE however couldn't wait. Diaper changing has been interesting to say the least, and I have a new appreciation for Glad Press and Seal Wrap.
Today, however all that changed!!! Kyle is cast free! He didn't like the noise of the motor for the cutter and he cried getting his xray, but he left the Doctor's office much lighter than he went in!
He doesn't have to have therapy but it will take awhile for his muscles to strengthen. His muscles are also tight, from not being used. The doctor said that he will do everything when he is ready and it won't take long.

I can't wait for him to get a bath later! His cast had begun to smell BAD. but I won't go into that!

Praise the Lord for His goodness and loving care!

    The press and seal we placed around the cast at the diaper opening to help keep "stuff" out of the cast. It worked great most of the time.

    I am attempting to get her into the 21st century!
