Today Bini was introduced to his new casts. The whole day we kept celebrating, "Yay! Binyam gets his new casts today! He'll be able to walk in these!" Etc, Etc.
Binyam before (we had to reinforce the knees last week as he had literally worn holes in them), precious.
After the cast. His foot WITH THE PIN in them. We did not know about the pins. We weren't able to prepare him for these things that had to come out. It was awful, it was painful.
Better shot of the foot. It looks so good! The doc was happy, "Looks great, not perfect, but great." I'm a bit partial but I've always thought his feet looked perfect.
Here's the thing though, when he was getting the pins taken out I was ugly crying. Can't believe how much I love this boy, how I would do anything to not see him in so much pain like that. But I wasn't alone. As soon as Bini started crying Dailah was crying, and then Tomas was wailing, and then Tariku was crying. Trysten said the only reason he didn't cry was because he saw everyone else crying and didn't want to make other people cry.
I'm assuming, knowing him like I do, you will undoubtedly see pictures of him sprinting at breakneck speeds within the next few days.
I don't know what I did to deserve this boy and this family but I will spend the rest of forever trying to earn it.
