Happy Happy News!
Little John got his cast off! Hooray! When it was taken off yesterday and he couldn't put weight on it, the doc in the box (actually a PAC) said he thought maybe it wasn't healed right yet and send them to an orthopedic doc at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital today. Well, it turns out that it is not at all unusual for little ones to not want to put weight on a leg that has been broken and sometimes it takes a week or so for them to gain the courage. She showed Trish the X-rays and reassured her that it is healed just fine, thanks! They recasted it yesterday, so it had to come off again today and I guess he wasn't very happy about that! He stood on it almost right away and when she got back here, he was walking on it - stiff legged and holding on to things, but he'll be running on it in no time and this will all have been just a very bad experience!! Whew!
