Jessie is FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After what - 9 weeks, 10 weeks? has it been....the cast came off and it looks like it just might be off to stay. Hallelujah!!!!

Of course, now she is terrified to walk on it, so she is still using the crutches for balance and support, but her doctor is hoping that by Monday she will be *walking* around. No running until she can walk to the end of our drive and back (1/2 mile round trip) and she can walk up and down stairs.

But now we can go swimming and she will hopefully within the next week be away from the TV and out playing (yes, I've been a bad mommy - go play the Playstation rather than try and walk around outside and fall down).

And its a good thing the cast is history - she wore a hole through the heel in the last week and was down to the padding (she wasn't hard on the cast at all, was she??)
