Buh Bye Cast!

No more smelly cast! Wow, I can't believe it has been 12 weeks already. Of course, when they cracked that funky thing open, you would have thought she had it on for 12 months. She had FOOD stored in it. How she got food down this thing is beyond me. Thankfully I had my smart hat on yesterday and grabbed a washcloth before we left the house so I was able to de-funk her a tad in the office.
She screamed the whole time they cut it off. Hell- I would have too. I must have had a look of sheer fear on my face when the nurse aka "Jason" fired that saw up. She must have realized I had no color on my face so she showed me how it doesn't cut skin. Well, her exact words were "It's not supposed to cut skin". Yeah- still doesn't make me feel better -but thanks.
Anyway, Aspen's term in smelly cast is done. Now she gets a hip abduction cast to sleep in at night only. But she is really stiff right now, so we are working on some PT exercises with her to loosen her up. Pretty soon she will be giving Dominic and Ryan some fierce playroom competition :)
Before
After (doesn't she looked thrilled?)
