Kieran: 42 Degrees of Goodness.

The numbers are in, and Kieran has broken the 50 degree mark! The x-ray shows he is now at 42.5 degrees, an 11 degree improvement in just one cast.

He was looking a bit thin when they took off the cast, probably due to a fever he had a few weeks before, but otherwise he looked great. I find it amazing how I can see his growth best once he is out of the cast. The time he spent playing he looked positively pre-school. The cast really has the effect of masking his age and form.

The new cast seems to be working well, so I am looking forward to the next x-ray to see if we can break 40 degrees. That would be nice, to say the least.

Anyway, here are some shots to look at, taken at various points before and after the 6th cast.
