UPDATE – November 8, 2022
IzzyB is a *very* independent girl and decided she didn’t want to walk after she had her cast removed on October 26, 2022. They printed out the x-rays so she could see it was healed and she tried to throw them away! Here’s what Matt texted me when they visited the orthopedists’ office:
“There’s no medical reason she can’t walk. Between 3 MDs and 3 nurse practitioners, no one can figure out what to do next. It’s normal for them to be limping now, but not outright refusing when there’s no medical reason.
“She’s so stubborn it’s actually impressive” – said both NP’s
She’s been crawling or being carried around by her mom and dad ever since; that got real old, real quick!
Two nights ago, she randomly says “I wanna walk” and has been standing and putting weight on it ever since with support!
Here’s her friends at school helping her walk with support:
