Navy’s 1st Run

After missing a game and a few practices because his arm was in a splint, Navy was happy to finally be able to play baseball again.

Navy scored his first run of the season!

As a rookie, he spends more time in the outfield and bats near the end of the line-up.  Continue reading

Navy’s in a Cast

I got a call from the school day. Navy fell at the skating rink and is complaining that his arm hurts.

He would be in the nurse’s office with an ice pack and could I please come get him to have his arm checked out.

The Final Ortho Update


After a LONG three weeks of a walking boot (less if you factor in that he figured out how to take it off and put it on when I wasn’t around), Navy no longer needs to wear his walking boot!!

The doctor even joked that he didn’t need to see him anymore for this injury, but wouldn’t be surprised if he saw him in the future. He knows Navy too well…

We celebrated by having a delicious ice cream sundae, and he was finally able to wear his new Paw Patrol snow boots (even though we still don’t have snow).

Glad to get that wrapped up before our insurance deductible renews!

Ortho Update


Navy was upgraded to a walking boot.

After a LONG two weeks in a hard half-cast, Navy’s foot has heeled enough to use a walking boot. He won’t have to use his walker anymore, and he can take it off to take a bath!

He goes back to Fort Wayne Orthopedics in 3 weeks. Hopefully we’ll graduate to wearing both shoes again!

(It would also be nice to get this wrapped up before insurance deductibles start over again in January.)

Navy Got His Walker!


Navy did pretty well in his stroller today.

We had an appointment at Fort Wayne Orthopedics to get him fitted for a pediatric walker. Yes, it is ridiculously cute to see him hop along with his walker.

Hopefully, we don’t have any medical visits until his ortho follow-up.

*fingers crossed*
