Lots of people have asked how he's doing with his cast. Well, basically, since he broke both bones in his lower leg, they didn't want him to be walking on it at all. In order to ensure that he couldn't walk on it, even if he tried, they had to put the cast on in a way that holds his knee in a bent position. As a result he crawls everywhere, and his toes are really dirty. (It doesn't matter how much I try to wash them, there's just no good way to clean them without getting the cast wet. So his toes smell a little like cheese. It's pretty gross. Now where was I?) He also scoots around on his butt pretty well, and the last week he's been trying to stand up with limited success. He doesn't walk but he certainly can get where he wants to go. It's very weird having a toddler suddenly limited to crawling. He's much more dependent than he used to be; I think to some extent he milks it. I am going to be so glad when he can walk again, because 30 pounds of toddler is killer on my back when I have to carry him this much.
J gets his cast off in 2 days. Day after tomorrow. Hallelujah.
