We had Finn's 4th foot appointment today, and they are giving him a week off with no cast! The skin on his foot needs a little time to stretch and readjust before the next cast. His foot has moved to the normal position, but there will still be a few more casts to go--they over correct the foot so that eventually it will settle into normal position rather than the initial position.
The sad news is that I have to do a little physical therapy on his foot every time I change his diaper and he doesn't really like it. It's basically just stretching his foot so that it remains limber, but he screams a lot when you mess with the foot. I think he just isn't used to having anyone touch it, because he is totally happy as soon as you let go.
I'm excited that his time with family and friends will be extra cuddly. And we're excited to give him a real bath and get his smelly leg really clean.
Finley and his big brother Copper... they love each other,
