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
ok really the picture below this....you can see the markings on his legs from surgery and you can sort of see the scar on his right leg that goes from his little love handle all the way down to an inch above his knee. It is crazy big.
He enjoyed his bath thoroughly... and we look forward to giving him many more in our new tub....that has been set in our upstairs bathroom. The process is moving forward and we are so excited. For now we are just relieving him with Tylenol and he has not disappointed us with his efforts. 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.

Doesn't surprise me that he's on the move. =) I hope the pain gets better for him.. poor guy.

And have they weighed him yet? How is that going?

Love seeing your sweet baby's legs! How great for all of you. It appears that leg is already much straighter than it was before. You have all been through so much, and always have such a positive attitude about it. Miss you all...
