New Shoes!

Mark got his new shoes & bar today! Praise GOD! His sweet little feet look so great! I will be posting a foot pic later, after his much anticipated bath.
(2 months of casts means pretty smelly & linty little feet)

He was very unhappy and crying like he was in pain right after the brace was put on him, and he continued to cry the whole way back to Mom's house. After about 30 minutes of trying to comfort him at there house, I checked the bar length, and realized that they hadn't quite set it long enough. So, I grabbed a hex key and readjusted it to be as wide as his shoulders. What a change! He went from very teary to talking away at me with a grin. :-)

I am so thankful for the Yahoo group for parents of clubfeet kiddos. If they hadn't mentioned just how to adjust the brace, we would probably be back up at the hospital in a few days with a very unhappy little boy.

God has given us such blessings!

Here he is napping at home.


  1. Wow, this is so amazing! I've enjoyed reading about your journey. The way you highlight God's sovereignty is encouraging to me. Praise God for technology! (Now if only I could get myself a dishwasher...)

  2. Yey! Praise God!
    Good job mama!

  3. Yay for no more casts!!! And yes, they certainly do get stinky after being in them for awhile. Matthew just had his cast changed after 2 weeks and yuck! lol

    Glad you were able to adjust the bar so he is now comfortable. I was amazed at what Matthew could do in those things.
