The Cast Is Off, BUT...

Monday was the big day. Isaiah could possibly get his cast off. I wasn't counting on it because I didn't want to be disappointed. You see Rick is out of town all this week and it would be a huge blessing to have that cast off and this little guy able to walk around again. So, with fingers crossed, we went to the dr. and sure enough, they said he was ready.
Safety goggles in place
Major giggling going on at this point. It tickled.

Prying it open

The big reveal, not as gross as I expected.

Now, here is the big BUT: I did not count on the fact that it would take him a few days to be able to walk again. It is now Wed. and he still isn't walking on it. We are actually back to square one when he first broke the leg because he was very mobile and skilled with his cast. Now he is hesitant and unable to move around like before. The dr. said it could take up to a week to get the strength and courage to use it. Pray for us. I am ready for this saga to end and for our little guy to be able to be his normal running around little self.
