AFO Fitting

I just realized I totally forgot to post about Wyatt's AFO fitting!

Wyatt met with a specialist the other day to get the molds made for his AFOs (Ankle Foot Orthotics). Wyatt was all smiles until Paul (the specialist) touched his feet. Wyatt doesn't like strangers toughing his feet and I can't say I don't blame him. Instantly the glaring eyes were whipped out! The molds were relatively easy to make and very similar to the casting process. Wyatt was very mad about the whole thing and I think he was worried that he was getting casts put on again. Once the molds were cut off he was happy again (although still glaring at Paul). We were told that it usually takes at least 2 weeks to get the AFO's. Not what this anxious mommy was wanting to hear! Wyatt is dying to stand and I am dying to let him. Now time to research socks and shoes for his AFO's. I want to be all ready when they are ;)
