Done with casting?

I can’t believe it’s been over 8 weeks already! We just finished removing Lisa’s final leg casts in preparation for her new set of shoes. We’re excited, but she didn’t like the cast removal this time It seemed to be quite painful for her which was hard on us.

She’s also finally done with eye surgeries. For those that don’t know, she had to have two additional surgeries (making four total – two on each eye) because some scar tissue was in the way of the pupil so her eyes couldn’t dilate. She already has one contact lens in her right eye and she’s happily exploring anything and everything she can. Whe’ll get her other contact lens on Thursday, and then she has an appointment with the county nurse and the early childhood people on Monday. We did a rather unofficial assessment of her development and she’s pretty far behind in a lot of areas so we’re going to learn how we should work with her so she can catch up.

It’s almost time to go get the new shoes, but I’ve got some pictures to share coming very very soon.
