Jonas Update

Today Jonas went to the doctor and had his cast removed. His leg is healing nicely, but is not ready for everyday activity yet. Now he has to wear an air cast for 6 more weeks. There are some limits that will be hard on him.

He cannot stand without the air cast, a sock, and shoe. These have to be on him from the time he gets up until he goes to bed at night.

My little hill-billy will have trouble with this. The bigger problem will be that he gets up by himself so early in the morning that he could forget about it and try to get up before I'm even awake. The air cast does allow him to walk and take baths, but he cannot do anything else. Running, jumping, riding a bike, playing on a slide, these are all off limits. Any stredd on the leg could break it again. November 6th he'll go back and have his leg checked again.
