Cast is off

Brayden had a visit with his ortho doctor.

The cast came off (they put ear protection on him to minimize the sawing noise).  The femur is healing from the couple of small fractures.
Brayden had the cast on for our beach trips...apparently he has some tan lines.  No, he toes are not dirty, it is his tan line (from being under the canopy of his jogger and the beach umbrella, the boy still gets sun).
His is incredibly sensitive about his leg now that the cast is off...kind of a sensory issue, going from having a cast to not having a cast feels weird for him and he doesn't know how to handle it.  Hopefully he will adjust in the next few days.  And I have to admit, I am sensitive about his leg too.  In a way the cast with a comfort for me as well.  It protected that leg, the leg that always seems to give him trouble and discomfort.

The plan for his leg:  just watch it and he will continue to have Botox every few months.  And we will work on putting him back in his braces at home, hopefully working up to putting him in the stander.
