Got a kid in a cast? Or had a kid in a cast?
We've been there and done that. Hopefully for the last time.
You can follow our adventures in my past posts:
A kid in a leg cast
Scooter was in a full leg cast for 3 weeks.
He was in a short cast for 3 weeks.
And then he was in another short cast for 2 weeks when the removable cast was too big for him.
Then finally.....after 2 months of being casted.....He was FREE!!
Except we saw a different doctor than normal who didn't know Scooter's history and wanted to cast him again because Scooter was scared to walk without the cast. HUH?
I convinced the doctor that Scooter would be walking in no time once he got his confidence back. We made an appointment for 2 days later to get another cast if Scooter wasn't walking or was in lots of pain. I'm cancelling it. The kid is walking all over and climbing the ladder to his loft.
The leg is free after 2 months. It's tiny and weak compared to the other leg, but it's free!
It's yucky too. Note to self: Never vacuum the day before a kid gets a cast off. Vacuum after. Looks like I have to drag the vacuum out again. A trail of dead skin follows Scooter wherever he goes.
We're going to celebrate by jumping in a pool.
What's your story?
