Three weeks post-surgery

Josh has cut himself way back on the Vicodin and is managing without much pain. He did pick up a bug and has been running a fever and not feeling very well this week. We went to the surgeon on Tuesday and they cut off his cast and checked to make sure there was no infection. There wasn't, so they re-casted it and he went to the BMT clinic and they started him on Zythromycin for five days. He's been home all week, but is feeling better and is going back to school tomorrow.

He went back to the surgeon today for his regular checkup and they pulled his stitches and put him back in a cast (not split on the side this time) and want to see him in a month. He's been choosing blue casts but opted for a red on this time.
