OK all so like the title says I am sorry i have been MIA for the past couple weeks. Needless to say they have been rough. Thing one, who has ABS for all you that don’t know, just got done enduring casting for her club foot and a tendon transfer in that foot to help correct it. Then, a week after getting that cast off went in for a bone revision on her amputation and had a bursa (internal blister) removed. We are at the moment in the healing process as that surgery just happened this past Thursday. Roughly two weeks from now we will be going back to her doctor to check up on her healing and start the fitting process for her next prosthetic. She wants to get another butterfly foot this time. Since she went to camp no limits and saw a bunch of kids using running feet she has been asking about getting a running foot. For all that don’t know the difference,which I’m sure are many of you, a running foot is a metal blade foot which simulates ankle movement and has more rebound in the step. While there are normal prosthetics that offer ankle movement her insurance doesn’t cover any of them, nor does it cover a running foot , but that’s what she has her hopes set on. We decided today to start her a gofundme page in hopes of raising one for her since she talks about it nonstop. That aside, she did really well behaving and taking being in the hospital like a champ. The nurses all fell in love with her and kept telling me what a bright and well-mannered kid she was for her age (insert big proud mommy grin).
Thing 2 is starting to lose his baby face 😥 He is starting to take on the toddler three year old face and FINALLY starting to speak a few more words that can actually be understood. We are slowly working on potty training, but he would still rather sit on the potty and shove toilet paper in it and then get in the tub and watch himself pee into the bath water (i think he likes me draining the water to fill it back up) And today he ate some chili!!! We have been going through a picky phase where he has only wanted to eat maybe ten things and WOULD NOT touch anything else but today he actually ate some chili so maybe the picky stage is over YAY.
