Cast number three

Andrew was born with a positional club foot. They are treating him using the ponsetti method which involves serial casting and sometimes a surgical heel release. He is making great progress.
I hate it. He screams the whole time they are putting the cast on. I feel guilty and sorry for the doctor and my baby.
Please ask me how fun it was to take all three kids to the specialist today, which is over an hour and a half away. I felt a little like a super mom and I only pulled the car over twice because Mark loves screaming.
I'm not sure if I want to feel good for hanging in there and surviving that trip ever again.
I'm really glad I'm not a single mom, because they don't have sympathetic husbands to let them take naps. I'm hoping to take a nap now...

I'm glad you were able to have a nap. Husbands are the best!
I had a cousin with club feet when he was born and after Shriners Hospital, he has grown up just fine. There is light at the end of the tunnel!
So sad Mark is still screaming. =(
I guess that means no cross country road trip for a while???
