Introducing Josie's New Hand!



We spent nearly 2 hours at Josie's hand surgeon's office and we are happy to report that Josie is one brave little girl and that her right hand looks amazing.



The noise of the saw cutting away at her cast frightened her (she wasn't real fond of the scissors either), but overall she was amazing.











She barely cried through the pin removal and she was only slightly annoyed with getting a splint made for her hand. She'll wear her new splint while she's at daycare for the next three weeks.





Tonight we are looking forward to a bath in the big tub with lots of bubbles and toy boats. I think we'd give her the moon if we could. To further celebrate, we're eating Chinese take-out on our cast-away (fishing dinnerware). We couldn't be more proud of Josie. She's one tough little girl.

We are so excited! Her hand looks wonderful. I think she was more interested in exactly how they were doing the procedure---that Asian brain!
Lovin' the dinnerware and Chinese take-out. Too bad she's not old enough to write a list of everything she wants...
Love to you all!
Robin

Oh, guess what?! We're getting 6 inches of snow---that's a lot for eastern NC! Yay! We're so excited!

Oh my, Eli saw this post and is very concerned about Josie's hook on her hand.
Eli would like to know if she wants a girl transformer.

What a brave little girl!!
Heck, even the pin made me queesy, and I was just looking at the picture!
Give her a squeeze from me! One more milestone down!

Oh, what a great milestone!! Wohooo! God job, everyone! Will she need some sort of physical therapy?
And the room looks lovely!! What a calm, girly feel to it!
Love, Barb

Yea for Josie! I'm so glad that is over for her...almost. I'm sorry to hear she still has to wear a splint.

Shanna said...

WONDERFUL!!!! I hope the rest of Josie's day was completely perfect, from the Chinese take out and the long soak in the bath!
Congrats to all of you!
