Well, it has been decided today that Leah will be casted in one week! We will be going in to get her casted next Thursday and they will keep it on for one week, remove it an place a new one on.
I begged our OT to let us keep it on for longer, she considered it and talked to a few other OT's in the clinic and the casting specialist and they all voted against it. I'm bummed about that for sure. They said that their policy is to remove the cast after a week and then put a new one on. I can't argue with them, I trust our OT completely and if this is the way she wants to do it then it is ok with me.
I'm excited and nervous at the same time! My one and only goal for this casting period is to get some sort of grasp. That's it.
I'm hoping it goes better then our first round and I'm certain it will!!
Oh, meet our new pets, Barney, Baby Bop and BJ! Leah is obsessed with them, she walks around all day "ishhy, ishhy" and she loves to give the fishes kisses!! It's adorable!
