When our grandson Grant was born last September his cute little feet looked like this...
As adorable as they were, we all wanted him to be able to walk someday,
so his parents took him to appt after appt to get them fixed.
First the casting, that was changed often....
You can see why they had to change his casting often.
Look how he grew!
(plus the Drs were gradually turning his feet)
What a little chub.
Then the clipping of his tendons. (a hard day for all of them!)
Then the braces that he wore 23 hours a day.
So last Friday Grant had his latest check up at Primary Children's in SLC
and the Dr said he is doing so well that he calls Grant's feet magical!
Of course this is very much attributed to his parents' diligence in,
keeping all Grant's Dr appts at Primary which is an hour from their home,
keeping Grant's braces on him even when he didn't want them,
exercising this little legs for him,
and doing all they were suppose to.
For sure, for sure.
So Grant doesn't have to wear the braces anymore during the day.
Doesn't he look great sitting there with his cousin Matt?
And McKenna now gets to put cute little shoes on his feet.
Grant will continue to wear the braces at night for the next 3 years,
or they were told there is a 100% chance his feet will go right back to club.
It's just amazing what they can do for club feet now.
Decades ago child would be crippled for life.
