William recently got to be in a therapeutic riding demonstration at a rodeo.  He was pretty excited!

His foot has healed nicely.  He is no longer wearing tape and is able to put pressure on it just fine.

Tonight, he really threw me.  I was singing to them at bedtime, like normal.  Somebody requested a song called, "May the Lord."  As I was singing, he started singing, "Edelweiss." He stayed right with me and I thought it quite strange that he would sing a different song than me.  After the song was over, I found out why.  They are both sung to the exact same tune.  Odd that I didn't notice it before.  He did, however.  Very cool.  LOVE Cochlear Implants!

Healing nicely

I don't think I ever got around to posting, but it seems William may have broken his foot.  He didn't really have an accident.  He just sat down on it while playing outside.  There was no bruising or swelling, but after a couple of days of not being willing to put weight on it, I decided to take him in to see his doctor.  If it's broken, it's a hairline fracture, which often doesn't show up on Xray in young, undeveloped bones.  The only way to really know for sure is to do an MRI, which he can't have because of his Cochlear Implants.  So, we're treating it as if it's broken.  With Kinesio tape.  That is some pretty amazing stuff.  All that to say he's 3 weeks post "trauma" and he's finally feeling better and willing to put some pressure on it.  Just 3 more weeks of taping... :)

P.S. I'm going to try to get back to at least a weekly posting.  We'll see how that goes...
