We have finished the castings and are five months into the brace. I am amazed at how well my daughter (and I) have handled this whole ordeal. And I'm glad I didn't know everything that would happen before it did.
If they had told me before hand how far they would move her foot at each casting... I would never have taken my child to the doctor for such abuse..
If they had told me before hand how much she was going to hate having the casts removed and put back on time after time, I would have left the first cast on for life...
Clubfoot can be a long, exhausting road, but the end is near (even though it doesn't seem like it).
And if they had told me before hand that I would miss her turned in feet.. I would have taken a million more photos of them (the few I have are my favorites).
Although the road has been rough, and she and I have traveled it alone (without her dad), I have to say it has been worth it. My only regret is not taking enough pictures before it all started because I cannot wait to show her later just how far she has come, especially when she is a track star or ballerina.
