We downsized the splint yesterday, and Lulu seems to be using the leg about 40% of the time. It is pretty much white tape and popcicle sticks now. When she walks in the house, she will use it. Outside, she picks it up. She forgets about it totally when she is playing. Hopefully, the light support will keep her from re-breaking it while the bone strengthens. The bone has to bear weight in order to get stronger. I am thinking two weeks like this, then maybe just a bandage without the sticks. It seems like it has been a year since she broke it, but it has actually only been 4 weeks. Longest 4 weeks in recent history.
