Let the Casts Continue!

Zachary has been enjoying the past few days with Mimi here to hold him and feed him a bottle or two.  On Monday Zach had a busy day of visitors with Nonni, Barb, and Alice stopping by for the afternoon.  Tuesday was a very hectic day with Zach's appointment at Children's being moved up an entire day.  Mommy and Daddy were able to get him there on time, and after a rather lengthy wait we met with Dr. Miller about Zach's tenotomy (tendon release in his feet).  It seems that Zach's left foot is a little behind his right and still has a bit of a crease in the sole, meaning he cannot have the tenotomy now and will have to have several more weeks of casts before they make a final decision.  So we went with white casts this week and are dealing with a fussy baby boy the day after (he seems VERY sore today).
This evening Zach had yet another visitor when Bill came by and  had a few minutes to hold him while he was surprisingly pleasant, but definitely hungry.  Mimi is only in town for one more day, so she'll have plenty of bonding time tomorrow morning with him before flying back tomorrow afternoon.  It's been great having her here and Zachary loves all the extra attention, and Mommy and Daddy definitely appreciate an extra set of hands!  Enjoy the pictures and keep praying for Zach's healing. - Brian + Kimmie
