I realize these are badly lit and out of focus pictures, but I wanted to post these.
This one is 4 weeks post op. The stitches were still gruesome. Not as gruesome as the craniosynostosis surgery, but still.
And this is 8 weeks (almost) post-op. Stitches had dissolved (except for one). He's not really using the new thumb, for a variety of reasons including that his right hand has been in a cast since January, he is left-hand dominant, and his tendons were tight to begin with. I think when he has the thumb pollicization surgery on the dominant left hand in late April, and is forced to utilize his right, that's when we will see vast improvement in him using the thumb.
Oh, and here is a photograph that I think is adorable. I was trying to take his picture, and I said, "Brody, let me see your thumb, hold your hand out" and this was his reaction.
Yesterday, he was on our bed, reading a variety of books to himself, and Jeremy and I just watched him from the doorway, silly lopsided grins on our faces. I could watch him do that all day. He combined Brown Bear Brown Bear with Jamberry, which became "Jahm behwee, jahm behwee, what YOU see?"
I'm having one of those days when all I want to do is leave work early and take him home to snuggle.
It helps not at all that Denver is scheduled for 8-15 inches of snow tomorrow. Like I need more temptation to stay home.
