Here are a few pictures of Josslyn from the past couple of days.
THIS is when Josslyn started to perk up.
Notice how she is holding Ray's hand with one hand and clinging to her arm with the other hand.
Yes, Josslyn does haver writing on her leg. While she was sleeping on the couch, Kellen so kindly drew on her with a dry erase marker. Someone forgot to inform him that it was the OTHER leg he was supposed to sign. Regardless, Josslyn was NOT happy about that. He also drew on the couch in the recliner. I was not happy about that.
Watching TV with Luke and Ray
In a hip carrier
Now that she is feeling better she wants to be up and all over the place. She generally sticks pretty close to me through out the day, so now is no different. For the most part she wants to be where ever I am. Since I am all over the place alot of the day, I have been wearing her from time to time throughout the day. The baby wearer in me has been loving it, and Josslyn thinks she is in heaven. Works for both of us.
Sitting outside watching everyone play.
After getting her hair washed and a spit bath(that's what we called it growing up...)
Looking at books
She joined in on play time today
She thought her cast made a perfect train track
See Alik doting on her??
I'm sure you noticed the many positions I have been putting Josslyn in. I keep thinking how sore and bored I would be if I had to lay on my back all the time, so I have been trying to provide her some variety. She is doing excellent. Her pain is minimal. I'm quite amazed at how well she is doing. Resilient.
Oh, one of you asked if Josslyn was in a spica cast. After seeing the pictures, I'm sure you can see that her cast is a spica cast. For those of you who had/have no idea what a spica cast is....well, that is what her kind of cast is called. It covers one whole leg, wraps around her wasit, and goes down half her other leg. Doesn't leave room for much mobility. It would drive me absolutely crazy if I was the one having to wear it. For those of you who are familiar with spica casts, I have a question. She is supposed to have her cast for 6 weeks. She goes back to the dr in 3 weeks. At that appointment will she get a new cast? And if she does get a new cast is it possible that it will be less of a cast than it is now? Just curious. Joss was still asleep from the anesthesa when I talked to the doctor, so I just listened to what he said and didn't really ask many questions.
Soon to come are two Q and A posts. I was actually working on them less than10 minutes before Joss hurt her leg.
Good night, ya'll!
