Cast Off!

Image
Today we went to Dr. Hyman's office at Columbia to have the cast removed.  Byron was very excited.



This is a video of the cast removal - I guess it was pretty ticklish.


This is Byron's foot after the cast was removed with the surgical scars.  A bit more gory then I imagined.  Byron didn't mind though.  He thought it was cool.

This is a video of Byron walking immediately after the cast removal.  He looks pretty good!

Byron now has to wear a removable boot for two weeks until his foot brace, known as an AFO, is ready.  The boot looks like this:

So now a boy's summer can properly begin!  Swimming lessons on Saturdays and lots more pool time.
Also, Byron will start physical therapy three times per week at the Center for Discovery to regain strength and to ensure that his newly released heel stays down and his toe stays forward.  The journey continues!
