Jackson got his cast off on Thursday, the picture is before it was taken off. It was much more traumatic than any of us were expecting. Thank God for Wayne the cast technician at Children's Hospital. Jack's leg was so stiff from being in the cast for 5 weeks that when the cast was off Jack was in sever pain and afraid to move. Wayne held Jack's leg (while Jack sobbed in pain) for 15 minutes while Jack adjusted to the freedom of movement. Then Wayne held Bryce (because he was crying) while I was preparing Jack to go home (who was also crying). What a great guy- and just when we needed to get through that day. I guess we had been expecting business as usual, but this was not the case.
The good news is Jack went back to school today (Monday) for the first time in 6 weeks. He had a great day and even did a little walking. He still prefers to crawl, and when he does walk he has a limp and is very unstable. Here is a short video of Jack enjoying a sunny day in Seattle. Jack is our little hero and is teaching us daily to focus on the positive and enjoy each day to the fullest!
