The Cast is OFF!!!

Today was Timmy's big day to have his cast removed. YEAH! He is free!!!

After review of his x-ray, the Dr. noticed that he as a new growth of bone that formed in between the muscle tissue (cartilage formed and it turned into bone). The Dr. said this can happen with children that are in casts, as their bones heal so quickly and they regenerate new bone material fast. Doc. said this may go away or he may have it all his life. The only concern is that if that bone material attaches to his other bones and his arm becomes locked in a bent formation. But that is unlikely to happen.

Because this happened, he needs physical therapy for the next 2 months. Please continue to pray for our little guy.

He was very excited to come home and take a shower! *Ü*
