Update on Nathaniel’s Surgery: The Cast is OFF!
March 7, 2013 § 1 Comment
We were back at Beit Cure Hospital again on Tuesday and Nathaniel had his cast removed!!!! It was a great day and he LOVED taking a full-on bath that night (I loved that full-on clean child smell). I anticipated him having a cast being much more difficult than it was. He was (fairly) understanding about not getting it wet, even though playing with water is one of his favorite things (especially in this warm weather). No proper bathing meant that Mama got to use those nursing skills to teach Daddy how to do a proper bed bath.
The surgery seems to be successful as his foot is very straight. We will continue physiotherapy and work on encouraging him towards walking. He has to understand that walking is less painful and more efficient than crawling on his knees and he’s not quite there yet.
We have plans for swimming this weekend with friends, playing with his “buckety” outside, and at least one “baffa” a day.
