Ashton Got His Cast Off!

Ashton got his cast off on March 10th. The dr had to double check with his previous x rays because he couldn't tell where the bone had even broken. It's amazing how fast children heal, thank God! He is still walking like his foots in the cast, there is a massive bruise on the bottom of his foot, and he leg is easily tired. But, in time he will be back to his old self, hopefully not back to running down the stairs!

Boy's wore ear plugs because the saw is very loud.
Can't wait to get this party started!
He swears it tickles!
This is the part where my camera battery died. :)

Ashton Gets Another New Cast

Ashton's lining falling out of his cast, so he ended up needing a new one. Whoops. Thankfully Auntie Amy is just as fast getting the old one off and a new one on. He picked the same color, glow-in-the-dark. It was so cool to watch her cut the old cast off. The saw cannot cut skin, just cast, so there was nothing to fear.

Ashton's Broken Foot

I am always telling my kids to stopping running on the stairs, especially since this is the first time in their lives we have lived a in home with steps. Alas, my words fall on deaf ears. Point proven when Ashton ran down the hallway and down the steps, only to fall on the last set of steps breaking three bones in the top of his foot. :(

We were very luck to have Auntie Amy as our nurse at the ortho dr. Ashton picked out a glow in the dark cast! It only takes Auntie Amy minutes to put the cast on, she was FaSt!

After the cast appointment, Ashton had to go over to see his regular dr. He has an ear infection! Poor kiddo!
