Serial casting--part 2
Well, Zoé is in too much pain, she can't put her right foot down. We are off to have it removed. I don't want her to be traumatized. We'll leave the left foot one in place, give it a day's rest and recast on Sunday or on Tuesday.
I feel totally guilty, but this was unpredictable and is part of the process. Serial casting is tricky as sometimes, if the child pulls on the leg when it is being casted, it moves the wedges and padding and this ends up hurting, bruising the foot.
We shall see what happened when we go to remove it later today.
In the meantime I've tried comforting Zoé: making "duddles" in the shade on this sunny Friday afternoon.
We send you our best wishes for a nice weekend ahead.
