When Kaydens was born his right foot was pretty twisted. The doctor thought it was just a positioning thing and if I massaged it then he should be fine. But it could also be a clubfoot. So to double check we went up to Primary Childrens on the 16th of October.
We got to our appointment and they started putting a cast on him!!! Not exactly what I was expecting. Needless to say he will have a cast on for 3-6 weeks, and I will be going up to Primary Childrens every week to get it re-casted. When his foot has been positioned right from the cast they do a small surgery and cut a tendion in his heal, which will grow back correctly. Then he has to wear these boot things with a bar bracing it between his feet 23 hours a day until he can pull himself up on the couch or chair. At that time we can take them off him during the day, but they must be put back on each night until he is 2 or 3 years old. The plan is after all this he should be able to walk and play like any other kid without any problem!~
