A medical update on Mr. Wonderful...

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

Kaikai went to see Dr. Dobbs (who is famous in the club foot world) in St. Louis a few weeks back. Dr. Dobbs suprised us with his recommendation: no surgery!! He told us that Kaikai would do well with a different type of braces, instead of surgery. These braces are shorter, more form-fitting and they bend at the ankle. Kaikai got the braces yesterday and is already doing things that he couldn't do before (like walking down the stairs without holding onto the railing).

As you can see, Kaikai is pretty happy about this positive change in his mobility.

Oh my! How I love this boy!!!

So glad that he has braces that work well for him! Little boys LOVE to be mobile!

Our little one is coming home on Friday. I am wondering what recommendations the DRs will have for him!

Blessings to your family!

We love Dr. Dobbs. We travelled to St. Louis from Maine to work with him and Dr. Park. AMAZING results. So glad you're little man is more mobile!
