- Hi all. I started working full time so have very
little time to "chat". I did want to get in my 2
cents worth here though. On casting. We did casts on
Sarah's feet. I think I understand that you guys are
talking about back things in your posts, however, I
think that if you can do things that delay surgery
then it is a good thing. The older these kids are
before they must do surgery the better it is. Our
Sarah needs another surgery on her hand but the dr
said to wait until she is almost finished growing.
The only way he will do it before is if her muscles
just won't stretch enough as her bones grow. As for
anesthesia...Sarah never had trouble being put under
by a mask. IT IS BARBARIC that they hurt these little
ones looking for a vein. I would at least insist on
some versed for the baby (and valium for mom! lol).
You all do good not leaving the decisions up to the
dr. Some are just so closed minded!! Some are just
Keep up the great parenting/advocating. You are all
