Club Feet Progress

I thought I'd post some pictures of Logan's treatment progress.

Alyssa and Shirley took him back to the doctor on October 13th, and he got his first set of casts changed. The doc was extremely happy with the progress of his correction, and so was Alyssa.

After the first cast casts came off.

Just one week of casting, and showing great progress.

My mom flew in to visit on the 18th, and we drove Alyssa and Logan back down to Kansas City yesterday to get his casts changed again. Wow, what a difference. I am extremely happy with how his feet look. The doctor says he will continue to cast the right foot, but it is in the position he wants, so he doesn't have to do any more correction to it.

The left foot needs a couple of more casts, and then he will need a tenonotomy (snipping of the Achilles tendon) on the left foot only. After the tenonotomy he will have casts for 2-3 more weeks and then corrective shoes and a bar. Hopefully he will be out of casts completely by Thanksgiving.

After his second set of casts came off.

He can touch his soles together now instead of his toes.

She doesn't look like a Great Grandmother does she?
