Mommy had a real busy day today. First she went for a shower at 7:30 am which is a big production with her cast. Shortly after that she found out that the Hospital was " deep cleaning" her room today. It takes most of the day to deep clean a room so she had to amuse herself elsewhere. Then it was physiotherapy time. After that she had to take a wheel chair taxi for an appointment with her surgeon. When she got back it was supper time and she has spent the evening in her wheel chair. This is the first time since she was injured that she has been up all day. She says she feels good so this is a good sign that Mommy is on the road to recovery.
At the Doctor's they took X-rays of Mommy 's foot. The Doctor said everything is healing well. He took one of the pins out of Mommy's foot. Mommy was shocked at how long it was! It was over6 inches long! Mommy said she didn't feel it coming out at all. She goes back in two weeks to get the last pin removed. The Doctor said she may not need another cast. He mumbled something about partial weight bearing. They may have Mommy use an "air cast". It is a cast that you Velcro on and off. So, it was all positive news for Mommy today. Yahoo, we are getting closer to Mommy coming home.
When Mommy got her new cast the cast guy wasn't going to make it any colour and was going to send Mommy away with a white cast. Mommy asked him for colour and said he couldn't deprive her of her most important decision of the week. Everyone laughted but I see nothing funny about it. Mommy now has a green cast.
