Home again, home again...

Just a quick update from home...


I think that sums it up!

Now for the photos.

One yr post op (Jan 22/09)

After 7 weeks with Dr Dobbs at the helm (May 18/09)

And the bonus

We are so thrilled at the outcome. Dr. Dobbs has hit a home run in our books.

Will update more later.

JoAnn: I'm literally sitting here with tears in my eyes after watching him dorsiflex his foot so nicely in the video and seeing his foot so straight! I'm so happy for you. I'll say it over and over again. I'm sooooo glad we met. Your story gives me so much hope that Matthew's success is possible for Levi too. We are back to Dobbs in June. Do you have a return date? Let me know about the AFO too. CHEERS! :) Jamie

Wow! His feet look amazing! YAY! I am so happy for you and Matthew! Isn't it amazing what they can do to our kids without surgery??? And isn't more amazing how our kids take with such grace and all in stride? I'm glad you guys made it home safe and sound (and most of all with that left shoe)! :)

I stopped and bought Delilah a cast shoe! Thanks so much for the recommendation! This is much better than before.

We go back to see Dr. Dobbs in a couple weeks to have Delilah's last cast removed. They are making a brace for her now. We can't wait to see the improvement! I hope she has the dorsiflexion that Matthew exhibits.

Wow, what a change!

You had to know Matthew wouldn't do what everyone thought...;)

What a happy outcome!
