No More Casts!

Hey! I remember these things!
Wyatt's last set of casts came off today! We are all so excited and hopeful. His doctor is pleased with how his feet are looking right now. He said that there is no way of knowing if we are in the clear of not having to do any more surgeries and that only time will tell. Dr. S commented on how much the treatment plan has changes and that just 10 years ago Wyatt would have had major surgery right away to completely reconstruct his feet and that they would always be stiff and sore. It made me all the more thankful for recent medical advances.

I need to call and make an appointment tomorrow for him to get fit for custom AFOs. I have no idea how long it will take to get them, but hopefully not too long because Dr. S doesn't want Wyatt standing until he has them on. He wants Wyatt to wear them all the time except bath time, bedtime, and the occasional airing out ;) Wyatt will just be excited to finally start walking! He was having so much fun tonight rolling around and moving his legs into all these new positions. It made us so happy to see him so happy!

Wyatt and Daddy coming home without casts!
Goodbye casts and on to the next adventure of AFOs!
