Was it worth it.... Did we make the right choice... what the HECK am/was I doing putting cast on my overly opinionated 4 year old?
OH MY!!! YES we made the best decision ever.
Ty had shots done in his abductors AND in his Gastric muscles. His abductors are basically in his thighs.
Did you know that it is "normal" for your kid to be able to open his legs wide enough to sit comfortably on your hip, or on your back for a piggie back ride. Well his finally do. And the effect was seen within a day. Botox takes WEEKS.
He doesn't complain much about the casts on his feet. When we come inside he lays down and asks for them off cause we take off every one's shoes but otherwise he doesn't really say much about them.
He won't use the walking shoes they give him so he walks without them. He finds that the second he gets to the hard wood he is down. He falls so fast. He is so funny. He will then say oops and crawl the rest of the way.
It hasn't really slowed him down much. He can't go outside which drives him insane. We can't take him to the pool and he can't take a bath so he gets really bored.
It would be really nice if he had a few cousins to play with but alas... nope.
Sponge baths are interesting. He even is OK with them. I can't WAIT to wash his hair though. He washes Dallas face and brushes my teeth because we are doing that to him. He is very cute.
A few more days in casts and then we will see where we are. Any little pals out there that want to come and hang out let me know. I work a lot this week but Dad, and Aunt Sheena are here. But he just needs some kids the same age.
He even went to school on Friday. He loved it and he had a good time and he got around pretty good.
So..... the verdict is YES and in six months if asked again we will probably do it again.
