Wes got out of the cast on Wednesday. It was SOOOO STINKY, I could have thrown up! I kept it pretty clean but theres only so much you can do. The doc said the x-rays looked good and hes happy so far. When he had the cast changed (at the end of March), they did a dye test and x-rays and he said everything looked good and stable and in place. I asked him what the chances were that something would pop back out and he said " I'm not going to tell you it hasn't happened before cause it has but from the previous x-rays and todays x-rays I think it's not going to be a problem". That made me so happy. So... he is in a Hewson brace now, for 3-6 months. We go back in 3 months for some more x-rays and he will decide from there if he has to wear it for the full 6 months, part time or not at all. I'm concerned that he will be way behind in crawling, rolling and walking. In 3 months he will be a year old and still not be able to crawl... I guess it's OK as long as hes caught up on everything by the time they go to school. Thats all for now... I will put up some pictures soon.
