This is the only way to stop our boy who only knows two speeds: fully go and stop.
And guess what it is all stop for him for a while now.
I know any Mama who has had to have a child go into surgery would understand how small and vulnerable he looked as I had to leave him on his own without me.
link to the method but honestly I have not read through it as I am certainly NOT nurse material and this just makes me squeamish to say the least). Given the other two methods were more invasive of his little body I pray this works for him.
Corbyn really had no idea of what had happened from the time we brought him to hospital until the next day. Due to the fact that from the moment he was wheeled into emergency they had some pain relief and gas for him.
This may be a problem when he is on crutches and at home as little people may not remember by the visual cues of a 'hurt leg' look.
On both sides of the knee and the outer upper thigh are the entry points for surgery.
These pins by the way have to come out in 6 months time
After Matt one of his favorite nurses had finished with his costume he game it to Corbyn who was delighted to have it.
But the older kids have been CHAMPIONS at home helping in so many ways.
Tomorrow we may try crutches as we move into the next phase of his healing.
He will be non weight bearing for 6 weeks and so the fun begins I am sure!!!!!
If this post has bad spelling, grammar and other mistakes like not making sense, I blame the fact that I am a tired mama but hope you forgive me anyway!!
Blessings to you and your homes,
