After a day or two, she didn't even seem to acknowledge that the cast was there. She still got around pretty well but I was concerned that if she fell again the cast could pull her in a bad direction and cause another injury or dislocation....I was definitely a helicopter mom, watching her every move! She already is a light sleeper, so our nights were pretty awful. If I had known this would happen, I wouldn't have been in a hurry to stop nursing. Nothing would help her sleep and I wished so badly to just nurse her back to sleep!
But after three long weeks, the cast is finally gone!

She's been in a much better mood since having the cast off. The doctor had warned that it is normal for some regression with her movement and that it could take a few weeks to slowly get back to normal. The day after the cast came off, it really seemed like she had regressed a step backward because she couldn't pull herself up but that didn't last long. She already is back to normal and even progressing a bit by standing on her own!
