The Cast and the Eye Patch

Reed got his cast on today… yay! He has the doctor’s permission to walk on it as much as he wants. Unfortunately, as you can see in the photo below, that is easier said than done. I have been encouraging him to move however he can and he is not so sure about that. Unless he really figures out his mobility, I don’t think he will go back to preschool until the cast is off… which is in just 3 WEEKS! Yay! When Aaron first took him to the ER, ten days ago, they said 6-8 weeks, so 4 weeks total is a huge improvement. He gets it off on 10/10!

Lena has been doing pretty well lately. Our church had a picnic and lake baptism this past Sunday. It was a nice time all around, but what I really noticed was how connected I felt with Lena. I was holding her during the service and it started to get a bit chilly. She just leaned into me and put her head on my shoulder. I loved that.

We are trying to figure out a trip to the East Coast. We had actually planned one leaving this Wednesday, but we cancelled it with Reed’s broken leg. We will be doing lots of fun things while we are there, and did not want him to feel left out. I am SO looking forward to this trip, whenever it happens. We planned this trip to see my family in Pennsylvania, but we will have the opportunity to connect with a lot of people along the drive and while we are there.

  1. Love the orange cast! When Al broke his leg at 22mos old, they told us 6-8wks in the cast in the ER too, but his was off in only 3wks and he hasn't had a problem with it since. He's 9yrs old now.
