Beautiful Life

Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

2nd Casting Day

Today was the day that Claire's first casts came off and the second ones went on. She was less than crazy about the saw they used to remove the fiberglass top of the casts! Once the casts were removed she was ready to go home! "Ready go", she kept saying! We could see some change, but mostly in the left foot, which seemed to face forward more. Once the casts were off, they put us in a room and let us wash her legs and feet in the sink. She really needed a full fledged bath, but at least her feet got a good scrubbing, because those toes were smelling rank! Then I lotioned them up, which she loved helping with. After that, Dr. Dobbs put the second casts on. He is pretty positive that she only needs three more casts. However, he is going to China to train doctors next week so we will not be back for our next appointment until July 14th. She will also have an appointment on the 21st because Dr. Dobbs is not casting on the 28th and they don't want her to go three weeks between castings! So, it looks like her surgery and last casting will be on August 4th. The cast on her right foot will have to be removed three weeks later and the cast on her left, about 4 weeks after that.

I don't like this at all!

Not finished yet, but on the way!

Playing with Parker!

Oh no, not again!

Now I'm ready to go!
