Today Mason had another appointment with the ortho clinic for his clubfeet. I remembered to bring my camera along so I was able to get a photo of his feet before they were covered again. For a refresher, here is a photo of Mason’s feet from 2 weeks ago, the day before his first set of casts: Here are his feet today after just 2 rounds of casts: Isn’t it amazing the difference? His feet are no longer turned inward at all! He’s done really well with the corrections. As a matter of fact Dr. K decided to go ahead and move Mason to the last set of casts before bracing, called holding casts. Here they are:
He’ll wear those braces 23 hours a day for 3 or 4 months, then less and less, working down to wearing them just when he sleeps. He’ll be in the braces for 2-5 years.
It’s been a huge blessing to see how well Mason has done through this process. I’m so grateful!
