A Candy Cane Cast!!

Well yesterday I had my Dr.'s appt. I have to tell you that I am very afraid of having casts cut off. I made my husband promise he would hold my hand while it was done. Well guess what? He was still parking the 4 Runner when they took me back to the cast room.

I told the tech I was afraid.... but that I knew that they had a guard not to go down to far so it won't cut your skin. He proceeds to tell me that this was not true!!! I was horrified. Of course hubby never made it in there. I was shaking and had tears brimming over my eyelids. It was over in about 3 minutes and no I didn't get cut. Good bye hot pink cast and rest of my stitches. No infection and it is healing well. I am doing better with the pain control too! Yippee....

So now I have a candy cane cast!!! It is pretty fun. Princess loves it and thinks it is cool. I have 2.5 more weeks to go in the cast. Next it is the cam boot so I can begin to walk on my right ankle again. I can't wait!!!

I so need a pedicure!

I got our Christmas cards yesterday and have started addressing them. Just collected the Fall decorations together and will get them put away. Christmas is coming and I can't wait to start decorating.

So during this whole surgery and recovery I have had a wonderful support group of friends and church family helping us out by cooking us meals, driving princess to school, having princess over for play dates,and helping with the cleaning. We set up this neat calendar from here Care Calendar. I put in my needs and than you have your friends sign up to fill the needs.

I am so very blessed to have such a caring group of friends!!!! THANK YOU so much to all!

We miss you little emperor and mommy so wants to hold you in her arms and make everything okay. Godspeed!!
