Next appointment

We took nick for his check up on Friday. His physio had a quick look, she was very happy with how well he is doing but still didn’t think his heel was moving down. We waiting around for his consultant to come and have a look.
The consultant has decided that what she will do is xray his foot under a general anesthetic. She said that if he needs another tenotomy she will do it all in one go but will xray first to be sure of positioning.
So we are to return next Wednesday (15th october) to arrive for 7 am. Nick is not allowed to feed after 4 am. He is due to be the first one in but I am still dreading having to see him hungry 😦 I am worried about how he will cope in cast again though the physio assured me that he will cope fine.
I am sad that this means he will be in cast when we are on holiday at the end of the month but I am relieved that this means that he will be out of cast for Xmas.
He is doing so well. Rolling over and trying to get mobile.
He has had a cold so I mixed some coconut oil with some eucalyptus oil to make a vapour rub which I put on his chest and around his nose. I also made some wet tissues out of kitchen roll using warm water and coconut oil which work brilliantly for wiping his nose and throwing away.
