Ponseti Graduate!

Drake’s feet looked amazing to his doctor and he is showing great flexibility. She decided we could stop night bracing at 3, and gave us great instructions on what to look for in case of possible relapse. His case never showed complex signs so we are hopeful.

I am so thankful for Dr. Ponseti and his method that saved my child from a lifetime of painful surgeries and loss of foot use.

We will be donating our last pair of “night-night shoes” to the Clubfoot Shoe Exchange and a family who may not be fortunate enough to have insurance to pay for their brace.

The brace is essential to treatment as it maintains the correction of the series of casts a child receives while an infant. Ideally, casting begins at two weeks of life. Due to Drake’s NICU stay, he started casting at about two months, but it was only two weeks past his actual age of two weeks.

Many thanks also to the Cincinnati Children’s Orthopedic team. We cannot thank you enough for your excellent care.

Now let’s go buy some PJ’s with FEET!!! HUZZAH!

 Hand washing clowns!
