A Pearl Update

A lot of people have been asking about Pearl lately so I thought I would do an update.
She still has the cast on for at least another week.  We have an appointment at the end of next week to have an x-ray done to see how her leg is healing.  I hope it is doing well enough that she doesn't need a cast put back on.
She is doing well with it though.  Pearl never really grabs at it or acts like it is bothering her at all.  She pretty much crawls everywhere on it now, but is able to take a few steps in it if she is going a very short distance.  It seems to help if she has something to grab onto when she reaches her destination.  She still stands and dances in the cast.
The thing she hates the most about this whole ordeal is the sponge bath situation.  There is something about having a wash cloth rubbed on her that makes her very mad.
Pearl has been enjoying learning new words, figuring out how to use utensils, and doing Christmas-y related things.  I'm so glad she has such a great attitude during this whole crappy ordeal.  I really want her to be out of the cast before Christmas, but if her leg isn't quite healed enough, it's better to have it on for longer to make sure she heals well.  We will see how it goes next week!


  1. Good to hear she is doing well! The photo of you two in front of the tree is beyond cute :)

  2. aw, so sweet. I hope her leg gets better soon so she gets that cast off!
    Looking at your hair is making me want to re-dye mine... it's so faded and my roots are pretty gnarly at the moment. Bleh.

  3. Poor little Pearl, she sounds like a great sport. :) I love the picture of her pointing at the camera, she looks like a celebrity with paparazzi.

  4. Thanks for the update! I have been thinking about her and her cute little orange cast!
