Final Thoughts or Advice:
I would get a beanbag and probably an iPad to entertain your little one. Within a few weeks (depending on age), your little one will surprise you with everything they learn to do in the cast. Also if by any chance you can get a spica chair, it was a LIFE saver. Hang in there and keep your head up. Your little one is going to be much better off and things could always be much worse. Time goes by way faster than you think, and it won't be long before you're over this and on to helping someone else out that is now in your same situation!
