There are 2 color options for a cast Cohen's size at our orthopedic office. Blue and red. The first cast he had was blue, so I thought the logical (and cute) thing to do is have a red cast this time.
We might as well be carrying Clifford the big red dog around with us----he would draw less attention.
As you know, Cohen doesn't get out much. The last 2 places we have been (both doctors offices) 5 or 6 people at each place have stopped us and asked: "What happened to the baby?" When Justin is with us, he tells people he has " an old football injury." I attempt to tell them "he is not injured, he was born with a crooked foot that needs help to straighten." I have also noticed other people staring and giving him sad looks. I guess they think we dropped him or something!
I think I find this so funny since the blue cast did not attract near (if any) of the attention as the red. You wouldn't think the color would make that big of a difference.
Needless to say, on our "changing of the cast" visit next week, we will be back to Ole Blue.
