Mute Mondays or not- UPDATE

This picture was taken from Abby's first day home
See the pin bump...Well it broke through and is exposed on the other foot. No pics yet. Waiting for the surgeon's office to call us back.  I am concerned about any bacteria entering her foot through the hardware, especially after my cutie pie niece, Lilly's infection.    Click here for their story

UPDATE-I spoke with the surgeon's office and they said this it is common for the pin to poke through the fiberglass cast and that infection is not a problem. We are welcome to use peroxide at 50% and a cotton swab on the pin and keep it covered with gauze and a sock.  Too bad her Dad's sock is still too small to cover it.  Any suggestions?

  1. How about a leg warmer that you could tuck up and pin? Glad to hear infection is not a concern and it's not uncommong for it to poke through. Hang in there Abby, almost out of those casts!
