First stop, the cast room to take the cast off. The cast guru did a great job explaining things to Ethan and he was fascinated with the tool used to cut off the cast as well as the pliers type things that he used to pry the cast apart.
This is the button on the bottom of his foot. I had no idea what to expect.
You can tell the button was pulled fairly tight to hold the tendon in place. We can't wait for our first bath in 6 1/2 weeks!!!!
Instead of another cast, the surgeon got him a walking cast instead. Ethan is pretty sore and so far today he has stood on that foot for about 5 seconds then he was done, saying that it hurt. It might be a day or two before he's ready to get back up on there. Hopefully we'll be able to get better practice and get back into the swing of walking again very soon.
We then went across town to have molds made for his new braces. We got to pick this time and Ethan chose camo straps with green foam. We should have them in about two weeks.
