Super Cool New Black . . .
Robert went to the orthopedists today and he came home with some new black shoes. He could have picked any color of the rainbow but all he wanted was black. I had him pretty convinced that they were really cool at first, but after about 30 minutes he was onto me and said, "soft shoes are much better." He's really quite cute walking around in them!
So, the plan is to wear these for a week then have them removed, stretch out his feet and put new casts on for 2 weeks. After that they will either cast him for another 1-3 weeks or send him home with braces to wear at night.
As always, he was a great patient! The most he did was whimper a little. The guy was amazed at how cooperative he was. (if only he was that cooperative with me. Hmmmmm.)
