ORANGE you glad he didn't say BLACK?


I thought we had an agreement Landon and I. He would pick the cast colors from only a short list that I approved. That way he could look as cute as possible in all my preppy outfits. No such luck.

He has had a pink cast, a kelly green cast, and a blue cast. Days ago he said he wanted a dark blue (navy my friends) cast. Yesterday he said he wanted purple. Okay, sounds good! But today, after we got a look at the skin graft (I looked but I wouldn't let him look), he chose orange. ORANGE.

Oh boy. I have two words: construction vest. He definitely is standing out!

I have to say you never get used to seeing a skin graft. It is tough looking. I have to just separate myself as his mother to be able to handle it. It really is upsetting. I just have eyes on the prize in this situation. Doctor said the skin graft was a 100% take and looks amazing (despite my opinion!). The arm is better than ever. Thank you God for these doctors and Landon's high threshold for pain. And for wine. Lots of wine.

Landon is such a cutie and a tough little guy for all the surgeries he has gone through. Glad to hear the skin graft was a success.

Glad everything went well. At least the orange won't be on there forever! :)

In keeping with his shirt, Landon Rocks! I love that they have so many cast colors and am so glad they have some way to spice up cast wearing (and surgery) for your sweet boy!

I think I already tweeted, but I'll say it again: send him down south and we'll get him in a deer stand with his "safety orange"... My boys can get him all set up!

I love his appreciation for color! Darling!

Landon looks so cute with his cast, but I agree it does look like construction cone orange. When will he get to change cast colors, hopefully soon for mommy!

He was clearly thinking "Hermes!"

Orange looks great with pink...or with classic black. God bless Landon and your local wine store, of course! Sending healing prayers your way.

Brie said...

Yes, I'm with Cancersucks - orange and pink is where it's at! Love it! Feel better sweet Landon xo

Orange! Landon has officially won my heart 100%. I mean UT's colors are orange and white. This is known as Big Orange Country. I just don't think it gets any better than an orange cast! ;-) Glad you have the wine, too, sweetie!! I can only imagine how hard this is on you, too. xoxo

I love orange. I also love any color Landon selects. You're a strong mommy. And you love him so very much. He gets You, and the Mr., and Coco, and gets to selects his cast color - that is Perfection!
