We arrived at Riley around 8 am and Jackson was in prime form. He was smiling and talking to everyone around him. Not unusual for our little social butterfly. They had us wait and then sent us for an xray of his hip. Then we came back and met with Dr Lubicky. To our surprise we found out Jackson has four screws in his leg with a plate. I guess this is what they used to hold his leg together where they broke it. Adrian and I discussed on the way home, how we wish that Dr Lubicky gave just a bit more information to us than he does. Sometimes you feel like you are pulling teeth to get an answer. Usually it is not a straight one that you get.I am sorry to say but I have no pictures of the actual cast remover....sorry I am an aweful photojournalist. I know. But I was so distracted by how amazing he was doing and all the informaiton we were getting that I didn't pull out the camera again. Then when they actually removed it and he had the pain from the lack of pressure and stiffness I was definitely more interested in comforting my child than I was taking a picture. Anyhoo...he was a trooper on the way home and slept most of the way and when he wasn't sleeping he was playing with the old, yet new to him toy bar on his carseat. it was wonderful. Then when we got home we filled up the tub and got out the heater.....to give him a bath. He loved it. He even moved his legs some in the water. In the picture below....you can see
I left him on this green blanket to make supper last night and when I came back to check on him he was under the endtable pulling out magazines. He quickly started moving around last night, still army crawling and occassionally he would get his knees under him...then moments later scream in pain. So it is still a process but he is trying. The docs say we will have a few days of tylenol and pain before we are trying to move everything again. I am happy to say that he slept a little better last night. Only waking up twice instead of every two and half hours. We will see what the next few days bring.
