The Bear is doing great! He still can't walk, but is finding it impossible to sit still. So, he has discovered that he can get about anywhere he wants to by either scooting on his butt or crawling. As long as he isn't trying to walk, the pain is very minimal. And the pain meds that are supposed to make him drowsy have had just the opposite effect. All of the rest of us are exhausted and he is full of energy. He was up at 5am today, ready to play.
Our goal is that he'll be back to school on Monday. They gave us these velcro sandals that will fit over the casts, making it easier to walk on them. As soon as it doesn't hurt to take a step, he'll be as mobile as ever. I do have some reservations about sending him to school, but I think everything will be fine. (I hope!)
My mom is staying with us for a few days and he is thrilled! He doesn't want to leave her side. It's a treat for us to have my parents living so close now!
