Last week Noah had another quick surgery just to remove the two pins in his foot. He still has the other four pins in his leg, but now there is a cast molded around them so that he can start walking again finally. He was hestitant at first but Monday he just took off and started walking and hasn't stopped since. He's so happy to be walking again. He still has a long road ahead of him though. However long you spend lengthening the leg you spend twice that in a cast letting the bone heal and harden. We spent a little over 5 weeks lengthening the leg so it will be at least 10 weeks before he gets the pins out and the cast off which will probably be sometime in February. Next week when school starts back after Thanksgiving break Noah gets to go back and join his class again now that we're done with the lengthening process and he's started walking on it. He can't wait.
