I picked up both kids from school and headed over to the clinic :)
Always laughs while they remove the old cast :)
Her skin is in much better shape! They are looking good! (yes still very stinky)
Donning the gloves for the fiberglass
The dr was very careful with not getting plaster on the casts :)
Yup - pink for halloween!!
Checking out her toes :) How is this for a stretch? Considering when she came she could not separate her legs at all!!
The end result vs the start!!!! How amazing is that!
The doctor also heard from the two big guys, Dr D and Dr M, about the next step. Both dr's agree that Gerri has done amazing!! And that she only needs the minor tenotomies done and not the bigger tendon lengthening surgery!!! The tenotomy just releases(snips) the tendon that is holding her feet in the down position, then she will be casted for 3 weeks and hopefully be done!!
The doctor wants to do at least 1 or 2 more plaster casts for her stubborn left foot. The right one is pretty straight and will likely only get fiberglass casts, no more plaster. :) The plan had been about 10 casts total so we are right on plan. So we are hoping for only 1 or 2 more casts then the quick surgery and then her final cast before we hope to be free of casts!!!
It is going to be close to be done by her birthday at Christmas time!! She is SO hoping for her sparkly pink shoes for her birthday!
