March 12th.... CAST OFF!

Big day for Sofie. The cast came off at 8am this morning. She is walking on it as well as she was with the cast on. It is little and itty bitty but it is perfectly proportioned, not wonky. I think that even surprised the doc. She cant bend it. Thats where physical therapy will come in. There is a 12 year old girl across the hallway from us that has the same thing as Sofie. She got her cast off three weeks ago. We can hear her crying day and night. She has to be forced to walk and so she'll walk twice a day in the hallway and cry and cry. It is heart breaking. Sofie's going to try to go visit with her and try to make her happy.

On another note.... Sof got an echocardiogram this morning. They found a clot at the top of her heart where her catheter goes in. So they've put her on a regiment of shots to her tummy. She'll have to have 2 shots a day for the next 2 or 3 months. She just received her 1st shot a few minutes ago. It's a treatment that thins her blood and keeps it thin.

  1. Heparin? They used that on me in the hospital in November.

    At first I disloved the tummy shots, my having an aversion to needles anyway. I soon grew accustomed to them, almost enjoying the opportunity to overcome a specific fear.
