Apparently it is perfectly normal for Nicholas to not start walking for 3-4 weeks after getting part of his fixator removed. I have been stressing the walking for nothing! He has at least been putting his foot down a bit more and he said it does not hurt at all. I am still going to encourage him but I wont stress it. I am taking him to physical therapy tomorrow and I am not sure what Ms. Kathy will have him do since he is not walking but he loves going so it should be good no matter what.
