My son continues to be a trooper. We had our hopes completely up yesterday that he was getting his cast off. They told us 5 weeks would be PLENTY of time to heal but sadly after waiting at the doctors office for more than 3 hours his xrays proved that he was not ready to be without it. His bone is healing fine but it's taking longer than expected. It's 60% healed so we will have it on for another 2-3 weeks. The good news is that he will have a temporary cast that we can take on and off for things like swimming and sleeping. He continues to persevere and continues in his wild ways. Read my words, there will be a huge celebration the day we get this thing off! The new countdown has begun!
