Update on my Club Foot

Note: Internet is back at lightning speed. Here is a post by Parker that was scheduled to be up a few weeks ago...

At the beginning of this month I headed to Vancouver for my regular club foot check-up. I love going there. I get juice, cookies and to play with the toys.

Mommy always seems to strike up a conversation with one of the parents. This time it was a cute mommy with her little baby boy. He was 3 months old wearing his boots and bars. I remember those days: having to wear those suckers for 23 hours a day.

Dr. Alverez was thrilled with my progress. She said, 'Not all patients have such a great success." I'm lucky Daddy is so committed in putting on my boots and bars every night.

The best news is that when I turn 3 I am boots and bars free! Looking forward to sleeping bare feet and moving around in my sleep without this bar between my legs!

That would be tough!

That would not be easy at all but I'm glad he's doing well and will be free of them when he is 3. He will be so glad that mommy and daddy were committed to helping him. When I was younger I was supposed to wear special shoes because my feet turn inward. I never did it and I have a feeling when I hit my 60s and 70s I will regret it. My parents feel awful for not pushing it, but I will never ever blame them for something I refused to do. He's adorable, by the way.

Oh, I am so glad he is progressing! That says so much about him AND his parents!!
