Last Sunday we flew to Chicago to get Allyn's next cast. Cast Number Five. Seriously y'all. We are on number five. Before this whole casting thing started I just knew we would be doing three or four casts and she would be straight. Turns out that is not our journey. We had a few days of intense physical therapy to work on crawling and standing and trunk ROTATION, ROTATION, ROTATION. The lack of the ability to rotate her trunk along with the added weight of the cast has made hitting gross motor milestones pretty much impossible. But without the added weight she was doing a great job of standing and even some assisted walking. It is after all about 15% more weight added to her body.
much any improvement because she really isn't growing. So if you want to say a little prayer (or a big one) that she grows in this cast and starts to straighten out that would be amazing.
