Thankfully, yesterday was our last of four trips to Shriner's for Zoey's new leg. I think it turned out pretty cool.
Her plaid leg is on the left. It never fit quite right, so they made her a new one.
They put an old foot on the plaid one so Zoey can use it this summer at the beach. Last year at the beach, the sock and liner would get soaking wet and if we tried to go anywhere afterwards, the poor kid had to slosh her way around. This summer, she will have a dry leg to switch over to. Yay!
Making adjustments to the foot
Chloe also went to Shriners with us for her yearly check-up. They monitor her leg length discrepancy to try to predict when to do surgery on her growth plate in her longer leg. The doctor said that they are about 90% accurate at figuring it out through hand x-ray's. Amazing! He predicted that her surgery would take place around age 12.
J-Man went back to school on Monday. He was bored stiff at home and missed his teacher and classmates. I was a bit nervous for him to go but everyone at school has been very careful about not bumping his ear. He has grown accustomed to his bandage helmet and said he can't even feel it anymore. He is such a trooper! He gets a new bandage every Friday for a few more weeks.
We have a few sick kids and are hoping that it doesn't travel through the family. Two separate viruses. Oh goody. Not sure which is worse...the one with the high fever or the barfing...
I'd prefer the fever. At least there is nothing to clean up. And nothing to smell.
