Day Two of Recovery...41 More Days to Go
So our little trooper has made it through another long day. We had our follow up appointment with the pediatrician and they were able to give us a referral to a pediatric orthopedist. So aft another round of x-rays, they agreed that it was broken. They wanted to put him in a walking cast, however they didn't have a boot that was small enough for him. So they made a fiberglass splint and they wrapped it with an ace bandage. They also gave him a shoe to wear with the splint. So he has to wear this for 6 weeks. Fortunatly this splint is removable for baths and it will tolerate him putting some weight on it.
So when we got home, he kept putting weight on it and then he would cry because it hurt. However he kept on doing it. Poor thing. I kept trying to reason with him, but he didn't want to be stuck on the couch... He wanted to play. Hopefully it will get better soon.
Next week is spring break and we were planning on spending a few days in San Diego going to Lego Land. Hopefully he will still enjoy the park from the stroller in between rides.
