Today was great. Sonel did not complain once about his legs aching. He never once asked for the heating pad, which was used several times a day. He had a bath first thing this morning. When I removed everything from his feet, he was a little worried. When I sat him in the tub, he tried to hold his feet and legs out of the water. I had to push them in the water and tell him "It's OK, the doctor said it was OK". After that he enjoyed himself. It was soooo hard getting the boots back on. Everything sticks to everything! Their is velcro everywhere. I had to figure out how to cover the velcro and pull the covers off after his foot was in the brace. I think it actually came with something to cover the velcro with, but it didn't get sent home with me. His feet have to be in the boots ALL day and ALL night for 3 weeks. He doesn't seem to mind. He's a pretty happy fellow.
Lori, I know I need to teach him English, but I love to speak in Creole with him. Hope can speak quite a bit of Creole. One thing Sonel has learned in English...he says "poop" now!
