She knows that she is loved. By a lot of people in her life and I’m so thankful for that.
The nurses that brought her to her 6 week check up appointment just went on and on about how special she is and how they wished all the kids could be as pleasant and smiley as Josie! <3
It was a very long appointment though….four hours!
But it was good to see her and her foot looks good!
(I was bummed to find out that Bella had to be moved to another rehab place. But Josie says she enjoys talking with her roommate.)
We had to get x-rays done, then we waited for the intern to come in and take off the casts.
Josie covered her ears and giggled through it.
Then we went across the hall to get fitted for her new braces. Which she picked the Batman pattern. lol
And then the not so fun part came……
Dr. Fortuna had to pull out that pin. I couldn’t watch….it was gross. But Jo was brave and squeezed my hand tight!
Her right foot is way more in line and straight now!
(July 28th, 2015) (June 14th, 2015)
After the pin came out then she got another cast put on her right foot. That will only be on for 3 weeks and then her new braces will be ready…..and then PT can really begin!
She can weight bear on both legs now. But she won’t really be able to do much walking until the cast on the right foot comes off. But the physical therapist can now start doing ROM on her left foot.
Dr. Fortuna is hopeful that this will help with her walking and after Chris, our “brace guy,” saw her foot he really thinks she won’t have as much trouble with her braces like she was having after seeing how straight her foot is now! I hope he’s right!
There is a lot of neat stuff happening in her life and in ours. God stuff.
Someday I hope that I can share all that God has been doing behind the scenes. He is so good. And so faithful in taking care of us….all of us.
And so we continue to just walk the path that He lays in front of us. Step by step. Moment by moment. And just keep trusting in His provision.
