This week the cast is black…
Also this week I think I am pretty much over casting.
This is unfortunate because we found out today that baby J will be having more than eight casts. Right now they are hoping his foot will be ok with twelve, but there could be more. This means that instead of only needing two more casts after today…we are now only halfway done. I am so sad for him.
And then…after all those weeks are done, he will still need to have a small surgery to sever his achilles tendon….AND THEN…six more weeks of casting! We might as well settle in, and embrace the cast, because it will be with us for the foreseeable future.
Baby J did much better this week. No one got spit on or punched, anyways, except the cast. At the very end, when they were cleaning him up, baby J rattled off something in Chinese that sounded very disgruntled, and then slapped his cast. Bless it.
