That evening, we were encouraging more steps with the camera rolling and Thomas was happy to show-off; he was a little giddy and impulsive, but proud nonetheless.
After all that work and sweat, Thomas was sporting some serious curls.
In other news, Jacob got his bazooka-arm (the original blue cast with the tape to hold it together plus another layer of black fiberglass on top) removed on Thursday;
he is now looking svelte in a Cardinals red cast.
The x-rays showed that his bones continue to be as they should and good healing; we return next week for more x-rays. After that, it's possible he'll get the cast-off in 2-3 more weeks.
Cue giant sigh of relief.
