Next Cast

Violet had her next cast put on yesterday for her Serial Casting treatment.

She is absolutely fab during the day with her cast, but just awful at night in bed with it. She normally happily goes to bed every night at 6.30pm but with the cast on she spends most the night screaming and exhausted from the nights cast dramas. So, her physio decided to make her a removable cast yesterday so we could at least take it off for baths and bedtime. Violet is very impressed and so far there has been no tears with this cast at all!

We go back next Monday to get her next cast put on.

Oh my, that must have been awful!!! I'm so glad they've given her a removable one!!

She has always had the fixed casts until yesterdays.
So much nicer for to sleep at night again though!

Removable casts, how neat! Haven't heard of this until now. We may have to do something similar for Cara at some point. Her PT is talking about AFOs.

I didn't even know you could get removable ones!
