There are lots of phrases that have the word "cast" in them. For example, there's "cast the first stone" or a "cast iron skillet" or even a "cast call" for a movie or play. But to a 4 1/2 year old that has lived the last 6 weeks of her life in a heavy, burdensome, pain in the behind cast, the best "cast" phrase ever to hear is "THE CAST CAN COME OFF!" And that's exactly what Dr. Werner told Abby today at her 6-week follow up appointment! She was so unbelievably happy! The four of us Wade women hung out at Southern Bone and Joint for most of the afternoon getting additional X-Rays, check ups and then high fives from the staff. Dr. Werner said that although Abby's foot is "clinically healed" she still has to take it easy for a couple of weeks...no major running, jumping, etc. She isn't in any pain, but she does have a little limp when her foot gets tired. But, to hear the cast was coming off was music to her ears - an early Christmas present for sure!
