Day 11 with the cast

Which puzzle piece shall I choose? (Check out the finger isolation!)

Allie got her cast back on this morning and was surprised to see it slightly modified.  The therapists cut out the portion of the cast that was giving her a rash and re-lined it with new material.  They suggested we don't get this one too wet.

Towards the end of Allie's session today, her long-time OT pulled me out of the hallway and asked if I could come in the room for a minute.  I was half expecting to find a tantruming girl but instead she was sitting and happily doing a puzzle.  The OT just wanted to show us how well Allie was supinating.

The OTs were putting stickers on the bottom of the puzzle pieces when Allie flipped them over and then Allie would have to put the piece back.  The OT was just amazed at how well Allie is doing.  At one point, Allie supinated with the puzzle piece and stretched it out for me to see.  The OT said "Kids just don't do that! She's doing so well!"
