So after dealing with tripping and falling, stubbed toes, her shoe flying off and making her fall, and general off-balancedness… Shriners told us to come back. The funny part was that when she called, I had already made the long drive to Sac, and was in the parking garage of the hospital.

We walked in, and in less than 5 minutes we were taken back. “I’m sorry, but we don’t have any room for you in the casting room. But we can put you in your own room. Is that okay?”


After a few moments, a tech came back and explained the doctor had wanted her in a bent cast so she would be motivated to stay off her feet.

Obviously, that didn’t work.

So he decided to remove her cast, and put another on that was
much straighter.

Once again, she freaked at the sound of the saw, but recovered more quickly after, so that’s good!

She chose pink again for her cast, and it quickly went on without issue. Before I knew it, they wished us a good day, and we were on our way out the door. She started walking right away. She seems much happier on a flat foot.
Additionally, they’re still working on getting me an appointment with Dr. Boakes!

Hooray! Positive progress!
