The prosthetist came into to take off the cast. Once the cast came off Dr. Hahn looked at the incision and was very happy with how it looked. Lauren was cleared To get her clamshell on. The process was a pretty painful for Lauren but she made it through. The clamshell which is quite a bit lighter and can be adjusted if its feeling to tight was a big improvement over the heavy and bulky cast. . Funny thing is that when the The prosthetists left they left it loose so Lauren could be comfortable. After the pain settled down she wanted to walk to the fridge to get something to drink (which is down the hall) and well after a couple of steps the clamshell slide right off in the middle of the hallway:). Thank goodness she had Scott and sky on each side!! She is now securely strapped in and ready to go:)
The prosthetist also brought some cool examples if prosthetics as well as real life skin samples. When we showed Lauren she said it looked like bologna!
