Update:

I bring you this news somewhat disappointed. Surgery went well, but they only were able to relocate one. Dr Lubicky said that this is actually better. He explained that it is actually really hard to keep both in place during casting and that doing one at a time, although hard on the MOM...is easier for the kid and more successful.

He claims we are going to be discharged sometime tomorrow. :) I am happy to not be here but wow...24 hours and then were out..seems kinda fast. But for those of you that have met Dr Lubicky you know that he is pretty flip. SO getting straight answers is difficult. He gave little indication to when the next one would be other than saying that we would rehab this leg a while before being in another cast for 6 weeks.

This cast is fiberglass and sticks straight out...so it will be difficult to maneuver but a heck of alot lighter to carry than plaster. I guess by the end of this 6 weeks we will pros for the second 6 weeks of the cast. The doc egged me on by saying there was a prize for the cleanest cast. We will try cuz the smell with my heightened senses, will be replusive if I don't keep it clean. I will need God's help with all of this that is for sure. For those of you who think I am a patient person (ashley)...this will be the true test.

Thanks for all of your prayers and encouragement. We appreciate it all.
