I think I can say with confidence that Matthew is home sick. For the past two days he is upset over nothing and in tears over and over again.
Today was cast change day. With Matthew feeling home sick it was a tough day. Usually cast changes don't bother him, but today, he cried over everything.
Dr Dobbs is still pleased with how his foot is looking. It is still not at 90 degrees but is turned out well. Next week will only be a tenotomy, no tendon transfer. He feels his foot should do well with only the current tendon transfer, but again, it is hard to tell what the future holds.
He was fitted for his AFO. He will be going into an articulated (jointed) AFO. He feels that with p/t, his foot should do well with this type of AFO.
We have just over a week left before we go home. I think it will be a hard one for Matthew that ends with surgery. Not going to be an easy week.
