it is off.

cast off day

 

Seems like yesterday we were preparing to go to Children’s Hospital to have Izzy’s surgery and now, almost 7 weeks later we are seeing what has been beneath those casts for so long.  Whew… what a day!   We should have expected the craziness of the appointments this morning.  We were supposed to get the cast off in the orthotics dept. but they sent us to the surgeon’s office along with an email to someone’s manager about the whole thing. Ha.  Not sure what the confusion was but it took forever to get the cast off and x-rays taken.  They left her in the bottom half of the cast for about two hours while we did x-rays and then visited with Dr. Herndon and finally the orthotist.

So happy that her splints we had made several months ago were good, so no more casts!   The orthotist said the cast was the cleanest he had ever seen and that she handled the removal better than anyone ever.  Sadly the day went down from there…

The drive home was not fun.  Izzy had to bend places that had not bent in so long that she cried and cried.  When we got home and in she cried and cried for hours and hours!  I am dying to get her in the bathtub but I haven’t been able to move her at all without screaming.  I have decided to wait to see what tomorrow brings.  I even fed her lying down because when I tried to sit her up to eat her lunch she cried so hard we had to give up.  She is such a trooper I know that for her to react the way she is it hurts really bad.

Melanie was so sweet to drop off a party in a bag for her while we were at the dr. office.  She included balloons and streamers that nini and amanda decorated the den with.  She had party poppers and mr. bubble for that bath we are waiting for. . . the cutest rings and a sweet little bag perfect for storing all her bracelets.  So much cuteness.
