Thursday pm we headed down to Philly :)
|Friday am cast off!! :) Purple cast on!|
|We passed this on our way to RMH in Camden :)|
|Dr vB is working her knee as well as her foot! :)|
|Friday afternoon had time to kill so we went to the Camden aquarium!|
|touching a shark!|
|the view from Camden over the river to Philly! :)|
|have to pet a ray!|
|the hippos are always the highlight!|
We had a group come in to do crafts Saturday am :)
|started with a scavenger hunt and then prizes!|
|then it was time to color halloween mugs|
|Gerri showing Ms Lesley how to make a bracelet with your fingers :)|
Ivan had fun too!
|everyone getting into the bracelet making business :)|
|relaxing with Brayden :)|
|chillin out with Ivan's ds :)|
|helping stir the batter for cupcakes!|
|time for arts and crafts!|
|who me? I am not eating a chocolate cupcake?!?!|
Monday morning back to Shriners for a cast change!
|after only 3 casts!|
|almost flat! :)|
|camo for daddy!!|
before her first cast her knee had lost much of its rom and we were at 30 degrees. this is cats #4 and we are at 45 degrees!
We love our philly families, love getting to meet new people. I think it is very important for Gerri to see kids "like" her, with arthrogryposis, with scars, with casts, with walkers etc.
She is doing so well, this 4th case was a bit more uncomfortable, but she was back to school on Tuesday and happy!
We leave again thursday afternoon for casting on Friday am, stay all weekend again for casting monday.
We hope to only have 2 weekends left, but you just never know!!
The hardest part is being torn between home and philly, there just is not enough time to get everything done :(
and being stuck in philly while your baby is sick at home just stinks:(
I am sure by next week I will be totally worn down, but hopefully we will be near the end.
big picture!! :)

Knowing we would be heading back to Philly for some casting, we took the girls out for some fun:
|we just love the home depot kids crafts!|
|need more paint!|
|they were SO intent! :)|
Gerri was not too worried about the cast going on, it is the cast coming off that she dreads. she has been cut a few times and after a few casts her leg and foot get very sensitive. Each cast gets harder :( Her first cast was not bad since she knew she only had to have it put on :)
|chillin out listening to her tunes|
(you can see how much her left foot has relapsed with her growth spurt this summer)
|we love you Monroe!!! :)|
|in front of the stage|
(mobile - she was able to walk all around)
|how cute is this?!?!|
|The performers were incredible!|
these little were in the daycare
|very proud of her shirt!! :)|
We had a great weekend, very quiet, kind of boring just us :)
|watching a movie on my computer in the hotel room|
|playing with her new monster high doll :)|
|waiting on xrays|
The good thing about the cast is that her foot is in a more normal position and held there. this is flattening her foot again and has taken away the pain she had when she was walking on the side of her foot. the cast also cushions the big callous she has on the side of her foot.
