Was cleaning out the hall closet and found Matthew's running shoes from last year. What an eye opener.
Do you see it? The shoes NEVER lie. On the left are Matthew's shoes from this year, on the right, from last year. Do you see the wear marks on that green left shoe? That was how much he was walking on the side of his foot.
Here is another view.
For the first time in years and years, Matthew's foot finally seems to be stabilizing. Finally, we have progress without the steps back. The end of June marks one full year without a cast and no cast in the immediate future. That little foot is getting stronger, starting to hold correction. That little boy (not so little anymore) is working hard to walk straight, to keep his heel down, to try and walk heel toe.
Funny how an old shoe can bring such joy.
