My son got his cast off this morning! He was not too happy when the doctor told him he still couldn't "do all the fun stuff" like ride his bike or run or basically anything 5 year old boys like to do, but nevertheless, we're all happy that he can finally WALK again. The bone has healed back perfectly and we don't need to go back for 6 months just to check the overall growth (because the location of the fracture is right next to the growth plate). We made several jokes about how stinky his leg was. I am so glad I won't have to carry him to the bathroom anymore! ; )

YAY! Good luck getting him to take it easy! That's gotta be hard for an active 5 year old.

Yeah, the cast was actually on for an extra week that they keep forgetting about (our mid-point appointment was pushed back a week bc the doctor was out of town). So I feel like I have some extra wiggle room. ; ) It also took them a week to get the cast on, so we've been dealing with it for 6 weeks instead of the expected 4. We'll definitely be taking it easy, but I'm glad I don't have to wait on them anymore!
