It’s been a week since Everett’s surgery!! This week went better than I expected and for having surgery Everett did really well. But, it was so difficult!! I know most people think he’s been easy peasy all week because I tell anyone who asks- he’s doing really well!! But him doing really well for having surgery doesn’t mean he’s being easy! haha.
One thing that’s super annoying that I didn’t expect with casts is how scratchy they are. (I know I’ve talked about this on facebook so just ignore this repeat information but I want it all on my blog!) Everett has to have some sort of cover over the tops of his casts (by his armpits) or the inside part of his armpit/the side of his chest gets SO scratched up!! Like rubbed until there’s an actual scrape! So because I only had two covers I made and those get dirty within an hour I made four more on this day. I’m so sick of worrying about covering up his casts! This is the worst part of casts! lol
While I was sewing in our basement the little kids were drawing pictures on some white cast covers I made. They loved doing this and every time Everett wears those cast covers they run over to look at their pictures.
Though I guess I didn’t attach the elastic inside very well because one of the cover’s elastic snapped and I have to fix it. And because I have zero time these days without Everett in my arms I don’t think I’ll ever get around to it.
Later in the afternoon when it was cooling down I took the kids to the park. We’d never been there before to play but saw it once driving by and thought it looked fun!
He was pretty much terrified at first! haha
I put my umbrella in the swing with Everett to secure him in place so he wasn’t flopping over as much. This made him less scared since feeling secure is his favorite thing (he startles easily)
I pushed him VERY slowly and he started to like it!
