Cast Away

For six weeks we looked forward to Allie having her cast removed. Friday was the big day.

What a day.

The front of the cast was discarded while the back half of the cast was Ace bandaged to her legs to keep her legs in place. From the doctors office, she went to be fit for a hip-knee-ankle braces.
The past few days have been a huge adjustment for Allie. A painful one. But she wants to be happy.

This morning, we unwrapped her legs to allow her to become reacquainted with them. Below are a couple of videos of her getting to know how to move her feet without them rubbing against each other.

First, tell Susan not to put her hand over the camera lens, like that! If I looked as good as she does, on camera, I'd say, "Film away!" :o)

Second, I'm seeing Allie learning to walk and eventually tearing around the house, enjoying the use of her legs. That, at least, is my prayer for her.
