great

After washing him up for the day, we noticed Addison has one pin (the one that was infected bad) that has shifted *up*, pressing on a nerve. His vest portion is also loose enough for me to put my hand under it, in the back. When he first got home, I could barely squeeze a washcloth through it.

But if he sits perfectly still, he feels fine! < / irony > And yes, looking at him, you can see the whole thing has moved and is now crooked. We’re phoning like crazy to see how soon we can get it off. Even if someone can do it today.

Well poo

Before Christmas, the doctor told us to call back today, after he had a chance to read the written x-ray report. Then he could tell us and/or schedule when to take off the halo.

I call today and he’s on a plane somewhere, he’ll call me back tomorrow. Great. It’s a week overdue to come off, and he said there’s no point in having it on longer than needed. Plus the pins are loose. Again. Addison can tighten up one by hand.

(plus it’s hurting my baby.)
