He will be in his current casts for 3-4 weeks (we will come back next week to close the casts once the swelling starts to go down) and then he will likely move to short casts for another 3-4 weeks. I was actually a bit relieved to hear that they would not be changing his current casts for a few weeks, because I cannot imagine having to be re casted so soon following surgery. Just thinking about it makes my feet hurt.
Hopefully we will be able to get his pain under control and get him off of the morphine so that he can go home tomorrow. He is doing such a great job and I am so proud of him for being such a trooper! Although I know it will still be awhile, I am so excited for the day when these casts come off and we get to see his beautiful new feet! Even more, I cannot wait for the day when we get to see him UP on those beautiful feet!
Stay tuned. . . .
