Week one of our new cast is down and William is bouncing back. He is moving with the help of his push toys, climbing on chairs and furniture, and watching Elmo at an alarming rate. He is still very whiny and we are having up/down issues. This cast seems heavier and wider on the top. This makes it very hard for him to get off his back like a turtle overturned and he has trouble getting down once he is up. He is overcoming and will work hard to master these everyday tasks.
On a brighter note, he has transitioned to the toddler room at school. He will get to eat lunch at a little table and chairs, take the stairs to play in the gym, and nap on a cot instead of his crib. What a big boy. They let him take his nap in the toddler room last week and said he kept crawling to his friends cot to take his nap. They put him back on his mat and patted his back until he finally gave in and went to sleep. We got him an Elmo blanket for his nap time this weekend. Hopefully that will make nap time easier.
Thursday night we christened the new cast with a round of stomach flu....also courtesy of the toddler room. The first round was the worst. We were able to disinfect the cast quickly and put him in a bib for the next four rounds. The smell seemed to linger about a day or so, but we are smooth sailing for now. Febreeze the baby was one thought we had! Just kidding of course! Hope you all have a great week. We will update later!
