Casts

We survived the casts this week! Price had casts put on by his PT on Monday and did great. He was so still during the casting process which was a huge blessing. He ate about 5 small packages of gummy bears and was a happy boy! I can't (and don't want to) imagine Street having to do the same thing.
At first, I don't think Price really cared too much about having them on, but then by the evening I could tell he was getting a little annoyed. But, like everything else Price has been through, he took it like a champ and found a way to get around despite the heavy stormtrooper boots he was wearing. (Ellery decided that they looked like stormtrooper boots and we kept telling Price how cool he was with his boots on.) We even let Ellery decorate them.

His casts will be made into boots that he can wear during PT to help him with his standing.



We are praising God that this is a step in the right direction...forward!

Sweet sweet Price, and I'm sure Ellery was all over that:)

“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.”

Price makes me think of this Gandhi quote. Hugs big boy, good luck to you!

Steps in the right direction . . . those are the only 'steps' we have to have right now, right?! Thinking of you and your sweet boy! Indeterminable spirits. Love 'em!
