Greater freedom

After four long weeks of lumping around a heavy and uncomfortable cast that disturbed his sleep and meant all water play was off-limits, Matt now has a new, light-weight and water-proof cast. Once again he braved the scary process of having a cast removed. By the time he was home it was all forgotten and Matt delighted in the new found freedom of movement.
I am so thrilled for Matt. Tonight he gets his first bath in 4 weeks. Tomorrow we leave for a 4 day break away and I am relieved that Matt will be able to partake in the water fun. In two weeks time Matt will be totally cast-free, and hopefully remain like that for a good few years.

Yeah! I'm so glad he's healing well and pray he stays cast free for a very long time.

Oh WOW! That cast looks so much better - lighter and more comfortable. Matt is obviously so much happier although he takes all these challenges in his stride and never seems too unhappy about anything! I'm so glad that it is healing well and that he will be able to enjoy the holiday - and bath! Such stunning pictures of Matt enjoying his cars.Enjoy your time away, hope you are all feeling better.

He is getting so grown up. Thank you so much for the card. It's hanging on my refrigerator. Such a sweet picture.
