Clubfoot Update.... :-) Shriners rocks!
Mark's feet were examined today, and the swelling on his feet was much better, and both his feet look ready for the tenotomy now. YIPPIE! I was all worried about leaving the cast off for a week, but it seems to have been the best thing to do for that irritated wee foot. :-) Great job Dr. Aiona!
The new plan is tenotomy next week, followed by 2 or 3 more casts. The tendon is super tight on one of his feet, so it really may need 3 castings to get to the right spot after the tendon lengthening.
Soo... please keep Mark in your prayers, we really want to get this done with out a cold delaying surgery further.
BTW, Dr. Sussman will have Mark fitted with the Mitchell shoes & bar! YIPPIE! Just what we were hoping for! This shoe tends to be easier to use, and has less instances of sores developing...
