The Bear had her pink cast removed today. Hallelujah! The Bear is used to the little women nurses at her pediatricians office. All the nurses working at this pediatric orthopedic office were large muscular men. I guess orthopedics is a very popular career for ex athletes. The Bear doesn't exactly like strange men. Large strange man completely freak her out. When we first went to this office to get her cast on a few weeks ago, The Bear clung to me for dear life because of all these big men trying to talk to her. This time around she remembered how these men gave her stickers and lollipops to try to make her smile so she was super happy and talkative. I had warned her that when they removed her cast it would be really loud. The nurse gave her ear muffs to where and he let her touch the saw before he started removing the cast. She giggled the whole time. She said it tickled. We got more x-rays taken. They showed that her fracture was all healed. However, The Bear has a pretty ugly bruise on her heel from the cast plus her knee and ankle are a bit sore from not being able to bend for 3 weeks, so she is walking with a pretty heavy limp. The doctor said if she is still limping after 3 weeks to come back. I'm praying that once the bruise on her heel heals, she will be a lot more comfortable walking and there will be no need to return.
Sweet Aunt Shellie, sent The Bear a little teddy bear with a leg wrapped in a pink cast. The Bear kept calling it her "very special special bear". It was such a cute idea and very special to our pink legged cutie. Aunt Shellie also made some pretty bows for Curly which she LOVED. Thanks Aunt Shellie!
Curly decided to wear all the bows Aunt Shellie made for the picture. The Bear is holding her pink legged bear, Julia.
Waiting to get the cast off
Free at last!
